This tribute to his mastering work was posted on his public obituary page by artist Parthenon Huxley:
Wally mastered three records for me and did an amazing job. I brought him P. Hux "Deluxe" and I was thinking (cockily) "Well, there's probably not much Wally can do to improve THESE mixes." My record sounded hot, right? After about an hour of Wally calmly doing his thing, his glasses dangling on a chain around his neck, he turned to me with one hand on an A-B switch and said, "Okay, Parthenon, here's what you brought in today." He played a bit of track one, and it sounded great. "And here's what I've done…". OMG. The clouds parted. The sun came out. The room smelled better. My ears got younger. I couldn't believe it! "Wally, WHAT DID YOU DO?" He chuckled and asked, "You like the direction I'm going in?" Uh, YEAH, that sounds good, Wally!" It was ridiculous. The next time I saw him I had him autograph a copy of "Deluxe" for me and it hangs on my studio wall at home. I had no idea Wally passed away two years ago. My very best to his family. I was just crazy about him, his talent and his vibe. It was an honor to have three records improved by his magic touch.
