It is with great sadness that the family of Walter Hess announces his passing in Logandale, NV. Born in Charleston, South Carolina, Walt moved to Fairfield, CA with his family when he was 6 months old. After attending K.I. Jones School and Sullivan Middle School, Walt graduated from Fairfield High School in 1983. He earned the honor of Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts of America and later served as a Scoutmaster for a local troop in Fairfield. Walter continued his education taking several courses at Solano Junior College. After operating his own machine shop with his business partner and working for Jelly Belly in Fairfield for several years, Walt moved to Logandale, NV in 2005 going to work for Long Mountain Outfitters building and repairing machine guns. Walt also worked at LV Swiss Machine in southern Utah, Great Buns Bakery, and currently TH Foods-maintenance in Henderson. He was also active in and developed many friendships throughout the arts communities in both St. George and Las Vegas. He felt at home in any good conversation, but especially about cars or food, and loved just about any yard sale, thrift store, or auction. Walt is preceded in death by his parents Dorothy and Orland. He leaves behind brothers Karl (Jan) in Lincoln, CA and Paul (Mary Ann) in Napa, CA, 3 nephews and a niece. Walt will be missed by his family and his many friends.
