Wally graduated from Creighton Prep in 1971 and followed with a business degree from UNO. He worked at Clarklift for many years before endeavoring on his second career as an accountant. Wally loved the Nebraska Huskers, New York Yankees, and Green Bay Packers, and was able to cross off Lambeau Field and Yankee Stadium from his bucket list.
Wally most enjoyed the company of his childhood sweetheart and wife of nearly 49 years. He also loved spending time with his daughters and grandchildren. Wally will be greatly missed as husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend.
To the all my cousins and the entire Tiwald family. So sad to hear about Wally. Though it has been a long long time I have fond memories of Wally and all the Tiwald family.
May Wally rest in peace now.
Thinking of all of you
Peggy and I are sorry to hear of Wally’s passing. He was a kind, loving and loyal person. He loved life and never backed won from a challenge. He truly fought the good fight. May he rest in peace.
I am so sorry to hear of Wally’s passing. I enjoyed working with Wally at MNR. We shared a love of sports, especially the Huskers. He loved to talk of his family. I later kept up on your growing family through another co-worker he kept in touch with. May your memories bring many smiles over the coming days and weeks.
Jackie, so sorry to hear about Wally’s passing, My prayers are with you.
