I have never forgotten Igor over the years. When he was an officer and I was a paramedic he would bring me carmelcorn from the Dayton mall simply because I had told him once how much I loved it. His laugh was infectious. I loved listening to his stories. He just brightened everyone's day wherever he went. My condolences to his family.

To the Nock family: Although I never knew Walter personally, I saw this obituary in the paper and immediately called my brother to inquire as to whether or not he thought this was the son of what our family knew as "Doc Nock's" family. My father's name was William (Bill) Kaylor. He coached basketball & Doc Nock used to be the team doctor when he coached in Franklin. I remember his office being across the river in Franklin & I also remember going to his home when I was about eight and they had a gazebo in the back yard. Both my mother and father are now deceased as is my brother Don who recently passed away in August. I also remember a young son which must have been Walter when we visited. I was about eight which would have made him about four. If this is the same family, my brother Karl (Tim) Kaylor and I wish to express our sympathy to the entire Nock family. Sincerely, Phyllis Kaylor Brooks

IGOR worked with my dad on Miami Twp Police Department. My dad was LT/Detective/Inspector Carl B Smith. My dad adored him. Recently Igor shared some "dad" stories to help me thru a grieving period. He was an amazing man.

Many Summers were spent on a Farm owned by his Aunt and Uncle. My fondest memories were just being together as a Family. Swinging our legs off the porch and when we got older, we just sat on the edge. Laughing and talking and that is the last time I saw him. The air was ringing with his laughter because he had just pulled another one of his jokes.

I recall how impressed academy students were when Igor taught firearms to them. He often demonstrated to the students his ability to shoot dead center into a target with multiple shots while others had difficulty just being able to hit any part of the target. Students always gave Igor high praises as an Academy instructor. It was a pleasure working with Walt. Best of all he was a great friend. I will miss him.

IGOR, is what we called him at the Police Department. He was always in for a joke whether on himself or on someone else. Even though he didn't always show it he had a heart of gold. I've missed him since we retired. There will never be another person like him in this world. I have many fond memories of him and will keep them close to my heart
