My memories through the years of knowing Walter include a loving man who would do anything for his family that he could. He lived for his Anita and family. He wanted to bring happiness to everyone and was a wonderful host to so many who visited his and Anita’s (made of love) cabin for a weekend. So much laughter and fun was had by all. Memories made. He bought our white lab puppy William, while on a visit when my daughters were young.... they never forgot his generosity and the joy he brought them! We were always welcomed into the Gibala fold of love and Walter always looked so content when surrounded by family and friends, those were his favorite Moments. He was a true family man and a great Patriarch of the wonderful Gibala Family. He will always be remembered with love and the love never dies.
