Walter, George H., age 94, passed from this life to a greater life on July 26, 2003, in Okla-homa City. He was born in San Antonio, TX, May 26, 1909, but resided most of his life in Oklahoma.

His avocations were many and varied, from being a gymnast in high school athletics, a Mason, a superb wood carver, and a skilled photographer, to being a competitive bowler in his later years. Some of his photographs were published in Children's Encyclopedia Britannica, and in the ZooSounds publication, and he served for many years as the unofficial photographer for the Oklahoma City Zoo when the Zoo could not employ a professional photographer. George was able to handle the function easily. He also volunteered in the Education Department of the Zoo, and photographed for the Zoo records and educational functions many surgical operations performed on Zoo animals. He was a member of Friends of The Zoo. George also enjoyed memberships in the Oklahoma City Photo Club and Woodcarvers Club, and won prizes and awards in many categories in both clubs.
