Walter E. Frey


Walter Frey of Warwick, NY passed away unexpectedly on December 6, 2018.

Born in Endicott, NY to the late Donald and Hetty (Avery) Frey on July 22, 1931.

A veteran of the US Army, Walt served in Europe during the Cold War. He later worked for IBM in Minnesota and New York. He retired from IBM Sterling Forest in 1987. In retirement, he gave his time to the American Legion in Warwick, Retired & Senior Volunteers Program of Orange County, and AARP tax services for seniors. He also enjoyed touring on his BMW motorcycle, fishing, and hunting.

Walt traveled with his wife of 63 years, Lore, and his grandchildren, with whom he shared many adventures. Known for his wit and sense of humor, he arranged an annual family reunion at Virginia Beach that became a 28-year-long tradition.

He has seven grandchildren: Terri and her husband Matt, Sean and his wife Lori, Kirsten and her husband Wade, Michael and his fiancée Jewell, Tim and his fiancée Daryl, Paul and his fiancée Stacy, and Elin and her husband Tom.
