Walter Halland

May 8, 2018 by Tom Black (Register to contact)

I telephoned Walt just now but spoke only with his wife because he was unable. Walt is in very poor health and is on hospice care. You can't have been at MVHS from 1965 to 1969 without having wonderful memories of Mr. Halland, if for no other reason than The Slide Show. He's living in Orinda at 24 Valley Dr. His wife said that hearing from a former student would "bring a smile to his face." If you care to send a card or letter, it sounds as though he would be very appreciative. I was hoping to see Walt at the 50th year reunion, but sadly, it seems that won't happen. Watching the Slide Show this time will be bittersweet, for sure.
