    He always traveled to the Nashville Area Beekeepers meetings and often added to the discussions. I always looked him up to discuss my colony problems and he never disappointed. We will miss him greatly.

    Condolences to your Family.

    It's always sad when when one of our members passes. Walt was, as others have stated, "an original thinker" that changed the ways that many manage their hives. Walt, we thank-you. Condolences to all your friends and family.....

    Walt's nectar management practices and writeups were (and are) a great contribution to the world of beekeeping- he will be missed. I hope his family continues to publish his notes, or work out rights for someone to consolidate and edit them into a book.

    My sincere condolences to family and friends.
    Walt, you will be truly missed. Thank you for all of your contributions to the beekeeping world. Your efforts have helped many of us fellow beekeepers to re-evaluate the way we do things and think outside the box. There is no doubt that your pioneering influence will live on in everyone you touched. Rest in peace.
    To everything there is a season....

    HI Roy

    My condolences to you and your family.

    I've never met you. But I did spend a few days with Walt while speaking at Ashville years back. We got so engrossed discussing beekeeping stuff that the sun set and then rose before we finished! I've never done that with anyone. It was easy with Walt.

    Checker boarding? Oh my gosh. During 50 years of beekeeping, it's the only concept that radically changed how I manage my conventional hives without disrupting them. Production went way up. Swarming went way down. And spring work was greatly reduced.

    I will always be indebted to Walt. And will miss him.

    Walt was one of my mentors without ever meeting him. Been reading his stuff for a long time. Got to see him at the TBA fall conference about three years ago I think. I made a point to go to all of his lectures there, and soak it all in.

    He will be missed by this beek.

    Truly sorry for your loss. Beesource will be a much different place with the loss of another beekeeper.

    I saw this and just have to pay my respects.

    Most of you - the people that gather here - have no faces to me. Just names, but names and words that are an important part of my experience with the bees. Your names stand for countless hours thinking, building boxes, assembling frames, testing new and old inventions and watching - always watching those bees with wonder.

    Then you the time to come here to share what you've seen, and compare with others. We're all crazy somehow, but we can take some comfort in a place like this, where we can see all the names of people that share our obsession.

    Walt was important for his big part of being one of those names; one of those voices sharing here.

    I'm sorry that he's gone.
