Walt Graham, a class act all the way. When I was eight years old I put on my first pair of skates. Walt Graham was instrumental in my skating career. His professionalism, talent, and beautiful smile captured my attention. Walt was always a kind, and inspiring. I loved going to his Roller Rink, Starlight, as Walt was always so welcoming to all skaters. Thank you Walt for teaching me that kindness is the only way to live. I dedicate Goodnight my love for the last skate of your life. I will always think of you, and your fantastic personality, that you shared with me.

I remember working with Walt in Delaware for an electrical contractor. He was a very soft spoken man and never would say anything bad about anyone. He gave me permission to hunt his property off Muddy Lane as well. He will truly be missed. Chester Kelly.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Walt's love of theatre & performing enriched us all. The costumes he made added so much to the performance. I remember the Christmas Show when he had Santa Claus in emerald green as well as ice blue with a staff topped with crystals. I remember the horses he made for the knights to gallop on as well as the Dragon for Dragon Tales. I can't remember how many costumes he made for our Irish shows & he never seemed to tire of adjusting/tweaking until he was completely satisfied. I remember our dinners together after a performance, calmly ignoring everyone's teasing about his refusal to eat anything green, saving space for "the good stuff." He was also ready to raise his voice "slightly" if he thought the cast needed to redirect their focus back to the work at hand. What a multitalented man. We will feel his loss keenly.

Walt you have left many memorable imprints in the minds of many of us.
As I worked for Starlight Arena for 5 years including times of transition you always remained a person we could go to. You were always kind and informative.
I only wish I could have had one last opportunity to have said, "thank you for so many great memories" I so enjoyed being involved in Showpiece 1 and 2.
May you rest in peace my friend.

Very blessed you were my significant love from '73 thru '86. I'm a better man today because I knew you. So many are sending you love because you were in their lives, especially the young skaters and families, who are parents, grandparents now. They remember a better childhood you helped give them. You are all united again Dad, Mom and Dan. You are a soul of light. Rest In Peace. Michael

Uncle Walt always inspired me to explore life. His best words of wisdom to me were to always walk with my head up like I was always going somewhere, even if I wasn't. Those words have helped me professionally and personally throughout my life. We will miss you Uncle Walt. Love Connie

Dearest Walt O, My thoughts and prayers are with you .. my heart hurts thinking about your pain - which I know so well. Walt will never leave you .. he lives forever in everything you do ... our grief doesn't always let us feel that now but you will come to feel comfort in his everlasting presence. I know how hard it is to say goodbye .. for Walt to say goodbye .. but it is even harder on those of us left behind to try and make sense of any of this. I send love and prayers ...
