During his professional career, Walter continued to work as a Machinist for Hoffman-La Roche and later Roche Labs. Walter retired after 30 years of dedicated service, where his prototype machined pieces allowed company scientists to obtain patents and advance drug development. Walter was a lifetime VFW member. He had an incredible eye for detail, perhaps due to his precision work; and took that skill with him everywhere he went, and could be seen in everything he did. Walter enjoyed traveling, especially cruises. He and Florence, took many fun-filled trips around the country with the Roche Retiree Club. He enjoyed a good meal and would not hesitate to say something about it! He liked HOT soup, COLD fruit, coffee with only milk, not cream, and it had to be a khaki color, and he loved apple pie but not with a lot of cinnamon, as he did not like cinnamon, however, his granddaughters-in-law would extend his palate on some occasions. He also loved to watch his grandsons make cocktails, bake breads and pretzels, and would enjoy being able to test the results. Walter was an avid reader of the newspaper and kept up to date with the current events everyday. He loved to watch sports on TV, especially football, golf, tennis, and bowling. Although Walter was a dedicated, lifelong Giants football fan, he would always show his support and follow the college football teams, of the schools his grandchildren attended. He notoriously "supervised" home projects around the house. Walter always took time and interest in his family. He shared lifetime stories with his grandchildren and would want to hear about their lives. Walter was always proud of all their achievements.
