Walter is the son of Kenneth and Ina Knutson, and was born Dec. 8, 1936, in Cokato. Walter was raised and lived in Annandale for nearly 30 years. He joined the Army in 1957 and served six years active-reserves, honorably discharged in 1963.

He and Chere were married on March 17, 1960, and moved to LaFeria, Texas, in 1965. Walter, Chere and their three children lived in the Lower Rio Grande Valley for nearly 20 years where they raised cotton, citrus, livestock, and he also worked as a mechanic. They moved back to Annandale in 1984 to help with the family farm.

Walt was mechanical by nature and had a long career repairing everything from small engines to heavy construction equipment. He also spent several years working for Howle Industries in Annandale, in metal fabrication. "Tex" spent his younger years, working the large stockyards in Texas, riding broncs and hunting and fishing. Walt loved spending time with his grandkids and was a loving son, husband, father, grandfather, brother and loyal friend. Walt was a Godly man with a well worn Bible.
