Special Ceremony – Fort Huachuca, Arizona
As previously disclosed, Walter Rothwell passed away January 21, 2016.
Wally’s remains were cremated, and he will be laid to rest in the military cemetery in Fort Huachuca (near Sierra Vista), Arizona. Per his wishes, his ashes will be buried in his wife’s grave in a family ceremony at 12:30 this Friday, February 19th. The ceremony will be attended by a small contingent of U.S. Army soldiers in recognition of his military career for 22 years following World War II.
As Wally lived, Wally thus has passed away … graciously and inconspicuously. For those who knew him or who loved him, this will be a quiet farewell for a very interesting and special individual.
