Walter, William A. (Bill) Entered God’s loving arms on August 1, 2014 in Door County, WI. Beloved husband of Anne (nee Newhauser) for 57 years. Loving father of Greg (Joanne) Walter of Germantown, WI; Linda (Pete) Frederick of Southlake, TX; Cathy Walter of Elm Grove, WI; Patti (John) Hein of Germantown WI. Fun-loving and proud grandfather of William and Ben Walter, Nathan and Aaron Frederick, and Lindsay and Reggie Hein.
Bill is survived by siblings Joe (Genie), Fred (Sally), Tom (Pat) and Barbara, and sister-in-law & brother-in-law Peggy and John Van Voorhis. He will also be missed by many loving nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. His parents, William and Marian Walter and b-in-law Gary, preceded him in death.
Bill was a long-time resident of Brookfield, WI before moving to Sanibel Island, FL 33 years ago. He and Anne bought the Harbor House Restaurant and ran it for 18 years. For the last 14 years Anne and Bill spent half the year on Sanibel and the other half at their “cottage in the woods” in Door County, WI.
Bill enjoyed life and the many wonderful friends he made along the way as Bill and Anne were avid travelers, boaters & motorcyclists. And his dream of being a pilot came true.
