Walter, you touched so many lives and were incredibly generous with so many. It’s hard to believe that you’re not with us any longer. Will never forget those mornings when the lake was like glass and we’d head into Wolfeboro on the boat to get some of that awesome raisin bread with frosting, bring it back and share with everyone. You loved doing that and so did I. But there are other memories too numerous to mention that I will never forget. Rest In Peace.

Our sincere sympathies to Kathy and the entire Magerison Family. It is never easy to lose your parent and Walter was such a big part of his family and his grandchildren. He certainly lived life to the fullest and had many interests which he was able to share with his family and friends.

Such a special man. So many memories, especially at Lake Winnipesaukee...mornings at 6am for barefoot waterskiing, boat rides, pig roasts...you name it. He was always so much fun and always willing to try something new. I have so much respect for Walter and the way he lived his life. I'll miss you dearly my friend...
