He had retired in 2002 from Federal Reserve Bank in St. Louis and had also worked at American Steel for ten years, Nameoki Township and Piney Farms. He was a faithful member of Calvary Life Church in Granite City where he cherished his church family and would not miss a Sunday unless there was an emergency. He loved his days of fishing, playing ball and was an avid St. Louis Cardinals fan. He loved his little fur babies, Lucky, Daisy and Little Bit. He cherished his family more than life itself and will be remembered for the love and special times shared with family and friends.

The Walliser family wishes to extend their gratitude for everyone’s love and support through this difficult time.
He will be dearly missed by all that knew him and we know Heaven has gained a true angel.
