Cruise Critic Community

Recommended Posts

It is with a very heavy heart that I'm posting to let our community know that Host Walt has passed away.  I've worked with Walt to monitor the Celebrity boards here on Cruise Critic for nearly 20 years.  He was such a good caretaker of our Cruise Critic community.  He and his wife loved to cruise, flowers and gardening and tennis (Roger Federer in particular).  

 

It seems surreal at the moment.  I truly enjoyed sharing the duties of "host" with Walt over the years.  He was a gentleman and a friend.  We will miss him greatly.

Anne:

 

So sorry to hear of Walt's passing, really appreciated his handling of this board.   He tried to keep it to cruising without involvement in politics, personal attacks, etc.   He deserves a lot of credit for that.  He will be missed

Dear Anne,

 

Thank you for sharing this tragic news. I'm shocked & deeply saddened to learn of Walt's passing. 


For those who may not be aware, Walt, Anne & I Co-moderated this forum for many years. We always worked together in perfect harmony, and it was an honor working with him. I've always held Walt in the highest of regard, as he was always kind and fair to myself, and the entire Cruise Critic Community. 

 

Our wonderful community won't be the same without his presence & brilliance. Sending My thoughts & prayers to his Family & Friends. Rest in peace dear friend, and G-d bless.

I feel blessed to have been a recipient of Host Walt's input over the years. I'm sure that monitoring this board is not an easy task,  and his time and effort have been appreciated.  His work, along with Anne and Andy have been truly valued.

 

 Blessings to his family and friends.

 

Patricia
