    I worked with Walter at the end of his career -- at that time, the workload on all of us was piling up, and at times he didn't enjoy that. He was a man of creature. But he worked hard to do what he could, and I learned a lot from him about non-journalism things: mostly about how to treat the public, and tell somewhat corny jokes. The headstrong youngster in me could have learned more, but refused. I wish I'd kept in closer touch with him...

    Forty-seven years in one spot, amazing.

    RIP, Walter.

    Nice tribute, Wicked.

    Forty-seven years in one spot, wow! Makes me feel wet behind the ears with my 28 years at my shop.

    Not only 47 years at the Arlington Advocate but a lifelong resident of Maynard...

    Wow, it's hard to imagine spending your entire life in one place anymore.
