Met Wally at Washington Junior High School.  He was friendly and had lots of friends.  He also was a great wrestler in his weight class.  RIP Wally.

My dad was a Racine firefighter for 20 years and then went to Mt. Pleasant Fire Department for 20 years (Asst Fire Chief). Does anyone remember the Racine Firehouse across from the Racine Journal Times? Now, does anyone remember in the warm weather there was always a fireman sitting on the bench next to the Racine firehouse (facing East)? There was a fireman who had a human arm puppet and would sit on the bench and say hi to the kids in the cars driving by (all windows were open, NO A\C back in those days!!!)? Let us know!
