Always enjoyed getting the mis-dialed cell phone calls from Uncle Walt...he would laugh and say Danny I didn't call you did I? We would chat about coming to Utah and watching the cars race on the Bonneville Salt Flats. My father worked for the state many years ago and he and Uncle Walt would plan to watch the races together. Now they will get that chance. See you two on the Salt Flats...
Love...Dan, Karen and Kids...

All the Portwoods were like family to me, and Walt was the happy-go-lucky 'big brother' that I much needed then and greatly appreciated. Much of my character today comes from my hero worship of this man many years ago. There's no way I could thank him enough for being my friend. My entire family loved him.

Always a kind gentle old soul. Grandma Helen Richerson always told great stories about him I will never forget. He always had a smile and a question about how we we're all doing. Always there to support his sister Helen. <3 but gone forgotten not>
