WALTER DELOATCH HAS PASSED AWAY
Thank you Rumpole
A note to let all his friends and acquaintances from the Justice Building know that Walter Deloatch passed away last Friday in North Carolina. He had been suffering from colon cancer for the last three years but was much too young to leave us and his two daughters. He was godfather to my daughter and never forgot her birthday or Christmas. I shared offices with Walter for about four years and there wasn't a more down to earth, honest, and kind person in the world, even though he won a dinner from me when his Tar Heels beat my Illini in the 2005 NCAA championship game.
