    Met your dad once, he was a great person on the short time I met him.My parents are up in their age and I dread the time when they pass. Heaven is better than this crazy world on earth.

    Walter was such a good man and loved by so many people. I am happy that I was just a small part of that love. Please know he is at peace now.

    Walter and Sheryl Croy were my second parents growing up on river rouge with walt jr and Chad,, i never had a dad so i considered Walter like a father figure to me, i remember when the Croys moved into the house on river rouge, it soon became a second home to me, and the croys back yard was a football field, a mini-bike track, an igloo war zone for snowball fights, even a basketball court, Sheryl,I thank you & Walter for taking me in to your home, and making me part of your life ,as you and Walter raised walt jr and chad, you raised me as well, my prayers and condolences are with all of the Croy families and friends as i know they will miss Walter.

    We are so sorry for the pain you all are experiencing at the loss of your fine Father. It’s never easy to let our parents go ‘home’. You will see him again in Heaven where is is surrounded by more Glory than you can ever imagine!
    We did not know him, but I can see that he is a very loved and admired man. His son takes after him and I know he was so proud of you.
    We love you,
    John and Linda Coles
