He is survived by his son Jeff Strickland, daughter in law Laurie Strickland, step son and daughter in law Jim and Lisa Wilson, his sister Nancy Dillman and his grandchildren Jason, Lindsey & Krystal Strickland, countless friends and extended family.

Wally grew up in Kent, Wa and from an early age he loved horses, cows, roping and farming. Wally won many awards as a young man for raising prize steer and continued raising cattle, roping in his younger years and working on his property till the very end. Wally worked in the Seed, Feed & Garden industry his entire career and made many friends along the way. Wally was currently working at Oregro Seeds, Inc out of Oregon. If you asked anyone they would say Wally was the definition of a hard working man. He mentored and taught many generations the values and ethics of hard work as he led by example. Wally’s smile, big blue eyes and even bigger personality will be greatly missed by his family and all of his friends. Each of you held a special place in his heart.
