The inimitable Walter Earl (Pa, Dad, Grampa, Uncle Wally) Straight left us to be with his wife Barbara on Thursday, May 23. He was loved by many and left an indelible impression on everyone he met.

Walter's family moved to Hopkinton from Everett in the late 1940s. He graduated from Hopkinton High in 1949 and lived in town for most of his life, raising his boys there and finding work in the surrounding towns. He had a amazing memory for numbers and had success working as an office manager, accountant, bookkeeper, and purchasing agent.
