Wally has been an employee of the WAWM Recreation Department since May of 2008, and currently serves as the Lead Grounds Foreman. Wally is married with two children and three grandsons. They are the loves of his life and he enjoys watching them grow up.

Wally enjoys sports and grooming fields for baseball, softball, football, and soccer games. He schedules all of the events and  prepares the fields to his high standards. The highlight of his job is working with great people like co-worker Bob Gardner. He also enjoys training younger staff to do excellent field work for all sports. Wally prides himself on having a clean and good looking place for people to recreate. He believes great communication makes field planning and ideas come together efficiently.

Wally plays a major role in the successful delivery of recreation programming. He and his team are not often seen by our participants, but know their fields will be looking good and ready for play when you arrive for a game. The West Allis-West Milwaukee Recreation Department is grateful to have outstanding team members like Wally that show up, work hard, and give their very best every day.
