Walter Ernest Binz Jr., a follower of Christ, died at home surrounded by his loving family. He was 91.

Walter was born in Paterson, New Jersey to Walter and Louise, their only child. He attended New York Military Academy, West Virginia University, and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. While studying engineering at WVU he met the love of his life, Betty Joe Billotti. They eloped and spent the next 70 years enjoying life together.

After serving in the army during WW2, Walter was hired by Boeing where he worked for 37 years. He retired in 1987 as the Chief of Structures Technology for Boeing Commercial Aircraft.

Walter was preceded in death by his parents Walter Sr. and Louise Binz. He is survived by his wife and soul mate, Betty, his four children: Walter (Eunice) Binz, Karen (Paul) Richter, David (Christina) Binz, Matthew (Lee) Binz, 8 grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren and one very lucky dog, Jitterbug.

My uncle Water was such a wonderful person. He was the perfect compliment to my aunt Betty. He was kind and giving and always had the best to say about people. He is now an angel in heaven. He had a marriage that everyone longs for. May you rest in peace.
