Ted Dennis officiating. Burial will follow at Mound Hill Cemetery in Eaton.

We loved Wally and were fortunate to know him during our time together at Eaton First Presbyterian Church. What a kind and gracious gentleman he was, a person who always seemed glad to see us and whom we were always glad to see! Thoughts and prayers to Sharon and all the family during this difficult time.

So sorry to hear about Wally. My dad, Bob Beoddy, was very fortunate to have Wally work for him and eventually take over the business. My dad thought the world of him. Wally was a good man and will surely be missed! Judy Beoddy Tureck
