Walter was born September 12, 2014, in Portage, WI to Walter (Jr.) and Melissa Goodyear. Walter was a student at Adams-Friendship Elementary School in the 2nd Grade. At home Walter loved spending time with his family. When he wasn’t playing with dinosaurs he enjoyed helping to work on cars and trucks – including making sure tools were put away in the right place. An animal lover, Walter especially enjoyed spending time with his dogs. He loved fishing and riding a four-wheeler or motorcycle with his dad. Walter had a unique laugh and always had a smile on his face. He brought joy to the people around him in his life. He loved everyone and he was dearly loved.
