Walter attended James Madison High School in Dallas, Texas. He furthered his education at Eastfield College in Mesquite, Texas. Walter enlisted in the United States Air Force and proudly served his country until being honorably discharged. He enjoyed a longtime career with the United States Postal Service for 40 years.

He married the love of his life, Graciela Forward. The two remained united in holy matrimony for 39 years until his transition.
