I remember Walter as as small boy coming to the baseball games to watch Allen play in Rosedale at the little league fields. Even as a young boy he had the gift of making people laugh and smile. Been many years since I have seen him but his smile has and will always have a place in my heart Gary Kawson

The Bassie families and warfields go back 3 generations. I watch him grow up. I can't believe he's gone. Thinking of you.

I agree with Vicki. I have such wonderful memories of being at the Warfield's house. We olayed in that yard. The shade was wonderful. Billie and Allen, I am sorry for your loss. And to his wife, I know this is a major void for you. It is obvious he loved his family. That smile of his is unforgetable.
