Memories of Walt, from Gordy
I first met Walt in the early
1970's after he moved from the Army to 13th Ave N.W. I had the
Parakeet in the garage and he drove by everyday going to his job selling
insurance. After getting to know him a little we talked RV's and
we found a RV-3 kit that Pete Eversole in LaCrosse had for sale.
This was his first homebuilt. I would go over to Walt's in the
evening and buck rivets until we had it to the point where he decided he
and Walt Mount could finish it up and install a Lycoming at Wes
Anderson's airport. He had a tweak on his prop one time and
decided a nose wheel would help. He than bought a couple of
American Aviation A1A 2 place and one he had painted in a bright yellow.
Wes Foss from Stewartville had build a 2 place Quickie and decided to
sell it to Walt with the agreement he would help Walt convert it to a
nose wheel as on landing the spring in the wings would cause too much up
and down motion. They needed to take off the wheels off the wing tips
and remove the tailwheel and install a new engine mount and landing
gear. After the changes Walt was happy with the handling.
He then bought a 4 place
American Traveler which he didn't own very long. Then a boat came
along but that was more work to get it in and out of the water so he
bought a Grumman Yankee with chamo paint and this he had this til his
late 80's. Up until he moved to the Waters in Edina he was
asking about a purchasing an Ercoupe. He enjoyed flying light aircraft
until the end.
