A retired general surgeon, Walter spent the majority of his lengthy career at Holy Redeemer Hospital in Meadowbrook, PA, starting out as House Physician and later establishing a large private surgical practice. He was with Holy Redeemer for over 30 years and held many leadership posts, culminating with membership on the Board of Directors and Chairman of Surgical Dept.

From there, he established a practice as a local General Practitioner in Northeast Philadelphia, where his reputation for a warm and caring bedside manner and his skills as a physician, earned him a permanent place in the hearts of countless patients and their families. Long considered the devoted patriarch of his own large extended family, Walter’s quiet example was always to live by the Golden Rule and help as many people as possible along the way. He was a role model, a calm guide and a steady source of advice, wisdom and solace for all of us and he will remain a source of inspiration for our family as well as the many families his countless acts of kindness have touched over his lifetime.
