Walter was known to his family and friends as "Bud". He enjoyed visiting with his family, especially his niece Nancy who made him laugh. Bud also enjoyed outings by the ocean and swimming. He had a passion for seafood, Hershey bars, and John Wayne western movies.
He is survived by his sisters Esther Lenihan of East Providence and Ruth Mros of Livermore, CA, his nieces Karen Sylvia of Barrington, Patricia McDevitt of Jamestwon, Nancy Lenihan of Newport, his nephew Michael Seccareccia of New York City and several great nieces and nephews.
