  3. Stephanie and I are extremely sadden on Walt’s passing and our prayers go out to all of Walt’s family. Walt and I where great friends and co workers at Lyondellbasell and legacy companies at the olefins facility at La Porte. Besides many funny stories we shared together , we also enjoyed some boating and beach time outside of work, many times we shared some coffee and talked over many issues facing our company and country, believe me Walt’s theories and spin was something to behold!
    I am personally grateful Walt was in my life, it was my sincere honor having had the opportunity to have worked along side such and person and professional!
