  • The breath of life now fills your lungs and you are home amongst the living. I will always remember your gifts...the beautiful murals you created and I will look to the heavens now. Hoping to catch a glimpse of what you will help to create with the unlimited supplies of colors God has supplied. God is good all the time.

  • You have played a huge part in each of our lives you well be dearly missed. I remember your humor, your artistic talent making hoods and motorcycles murals. Thank you for letting me help that one time drawing the eyes it made my day. I can not express how much you well be missed love you my brother. Your sister, Cruz

  • When I lived in Chicago you and Bill were like brothers. I remember you and he going out shopping for Polish bread and sausage which would never make it home because you guys would eat it on the way. Bill will be happy to see you in heaven Wally Rest In Peace and give Bill a hug for me.

  • Wally you opened your home to me and my child to be Genesis when we were seeking shelter. You shared the Polish culture proudly through your language and I learned to love pickled beets, cucumber salad... I can hear you call my name. I can hear you speak to me. I love you Wally!

  • The angels are rejoicing your arrival. You will be missed dearly. We love you very much Wally! Until we meet again. Carmen I Sepulveda

  • My dear brother.. You will and are already missed so much. I have so many child hood memories of us. You had to watch me when mom & dad worked. I remember we would be watching scary movies and I thought you were in the bathroom..instead you were in the basement turning off the breaker to the lights in the house & scratching on our door to scare the living heck out of me..lol Or when you let me get ready for school on a Saturday morning.. Me thinking it was Monday & let me go to school 🏫 When I came back you laughed so hard you were rolling on the floor..lol I'm glad we tried to talk at least once a week. I know you are pain free & I know mom & dad,Lucy,Barbara,George Irene and everyone else where there to greet you at the gates to heaven. I love you my dear brother ❤ Till we meet again ❤

  • My favorite time with Wally is when there was a fly on the table and he was trying to swat it with ordinary household items. It was hilarious! There are other great times shared but this one is so funny! -James
