Mr. McMullen was awesome. Good-natured, supportive, just a wonderful guy. I had him for some kind of advanced reading class at FHS. Wish I'd kept in touch.

Susan, My deepest sympathy to you and your family. I remember your Dad as always having a smile and being upbeat. May your memories and these stories comfort you.

My Honors Senior English teacher in 1970-71. Absolutely up there with one of the coolest teachers, easygoing, laughing at everything. Loved him. Oh, and PS, we went to the first class (which was the First period) and he told us to do whatever we wanted for the year, which we did. Thank you, Uncle Walt, for that extra sleep that year. You will never be forgotten by many of us. Sherri Andrul Nicholas. PS I never knew til right now that Susan was your daughter!

May you rest in peace, Uncle Walter. I wish I had gotten to know you more in your lifetime. You touched a lot of lives and that's what matters most,

Walt was so much more than a teacher to so many, he also was a lifelong friend. A huge positive influence on me when I was really in need of a positive one. The ability to lighten the mood while instructing and teaching was a gift. It was always a pleasure to see him and take care of him when he came into the store where I worked. My best to Susan and family and know that you shared such a good man with so many. With deepest regards. Tim Orvis. Most School Spirit Class of 71

He was my favorite FHS teacher. He always made learning fun and did it with a smile and kindness every day. I remember celebrating Millard Fillmore Day ( A holiday only celebrated in his class) on Jan 7th. He came to our class of 77 reunions and I ran into him one day about 15 years ago at the Shell station in Farmington and we had a great chat and enjoyed a good laugh. Thoughts and prayers to his family. He was a great man and a joy to have as a teacher.
