On a sunny morning on September 15, 2023, Walter Frederick Grover, took his last breath as he passed through this life and into the next. His final day started out in the usual ways, filled with his favorite things. He took joy in the simple pleasures of life. Each morning, he would greet Pixie his cherished dog, tend to his prized Koi fish and soon after fed the squirrels and bunnies in his yard while bragging about his beautiful mango tree and cactus plants.
