Raised in Clarkstown, N.Y., Walt graduated from high school there, as student government president of both Clarkstown High School and Rockland County. At Princeton, Walt enrolled in NROTC, played freshman soccer, majored in chemical engineering, joined Court Club, and played ICC basketball and softball for Court. He also won the junior class scholarship for chemical engineers and led the NROTC drill team.

During three years in the Navy, principally aboard the fleet tanker USS Allagash, he met Monique Uleisz on leave in Marseilles and married her in Paris on his next leave.

On exiting the Navy in 1963, Walt went directly to Procter and Gamble in Cincinnati as a product development engineer. In 1970, he went to United Carbide Corp. in Tarrytown, N.Y., where he spent the balance of his career as senior staff engineer and safety director until retirement in 1993.

Walt and Monique moved north in 2003 to the historic Glens Falls and Fort Edward, N.Y., area, where he was active in church life and enjoyed gardening, fishing, and travel with Monique.

Walt died July 30, 2022, of complications of Alzheimer’s. Our sympathies to Monique, son Eric ’86, daughter Karen, and their families.
