He served as a member and past President of the VFW Post No. 4374, a member of the Tin Can Soldiers and just two years ago was the Grand Marshal of the Freehold Memorial Day Parade. Walter was extremely giving and always helpful whether it was devoting his time as a bingo worker at The Manor Rehabilitation Center and the Freehold Senior Center or volunteering for Meals on Wheels. He was actively involved with the Toys for Tots program as well.
