Very sad news indeed, wondered why he had not posted on here recently.
Although he posted on here for years it wasnt til we introduced ourselves in 2019 on an away day and we had a good crack and a twine lol.Then spoke on away days after that before the pandemic.A really nice fella. R.I.P. Waltero
I'm so sad to read this news.
As a newcomer to the club he was amongst the many people who have made me feel welcome. I was in the Paddock with my daughter and he came over and introduced himself. "You must be newcarlislefan!"
I think he'd had a few ales. We had a great chat and he told me all about his time working overseas and some of the associated stories.
We chatted most of the game and considering he didn't know me from Adam was so friendly. I saw him a couple of times after that, the last of which was by the bus stop by the Beehive.
Really nice bloke. Condolences to his family and friends.
This is terribly sad news.
I had many chat with him over a pint in bars at away grounds over the last 5 or 6 years I hadn't seen him in the Beehive at home games for the last couple of years due to me refusing to attend anymore home games whilst this board of directors run the club.
We tended to agree on most things regarding the state of the club. He was desperate for a change of ownership and never got to see it.
What a downer. Really sad to hear about this. We only met two years ago but spoke ever since at away matches when seeing each other. Needless to say he will be missed by all who knew him and folk who read the board will I'm sure miss his posts.
RIP Walter and condolences to all of his family and friends.
