Our Family's Journey Through Time & Space...

How I Remember My Brother Walt.....

Lorem Ipsum

My mother asked me to go and get Dr. Hoeyt and bring him over as fast as I could. So on my little scooter I went pedaling to Dr. Hoeyt's office. I knew my mother had to be sick for me to go get the doctor. When I returned with the doctor, Ma asked me to wait out in the kitchen just in case the doctor needed me to possibly do some errand for him. Very shortly afterwards there was the cry of a baby. This was my brother Walt. He was born in the middle of one nice afternoon at 2 Highland Terrace, Needham, Massachusetts. This address was a 3 family house and we lived on the second floor. Our family moved from North Needham to East Needham shortly after Walt's birth. Our moving was accomplished with the aid of Uncle Steve and Laurie with the Express truck.

The cat, who was the only loss in the move, must have jumped out of the truck.

Walt had a God Father whose name was Gus Oliver. Gus was a daredevil and had his own plane. He would walk the wings of his plane and stunt fly at different carnivals. He also had a trunk of gadgets and was quite a magician as well. He entertained us a lot especially during winter evenings. Gus was also famous for his crossing of Niagra Falls, hanging by his teeth biting a leather tong which was attached to a wooden pulley that rode on the cable suspended across Niagra Falls.
