Write a Tribute

Walt passed away on July 1st 2018 surrounded by his loving family. He leaves behind Faye; his wife and love of over 60 years, children Karen (Ken), Kathy (Kevin) & Gary, grandchildren Jessie (Dana), Robbie and Evan, and great granddaughter Katie.

He also leaves behind his brother and best friend Hardy (Pearl), along with many loving nieces and nephews.

Walt loved to golf, and spent many happy years golfing with Faye, Hardy and Pearl. He had a large & close family, with 7 brothers & sisters. They were not only siblings, but friends.

He was the best Dad anyone could ever ask for…loving, fun, smart, and involved. You could talk to Dad about literally anything. He loved books, history, and us.

Nobody is perfect, but he came about as close as a person can get. He will be missed most terribly.

There will be no service as per his request.

I know he will be missed more than I can imagine...the Kristjanson family is like an extended family of our family...we will never forget him!
