    Dear Weeks Family, Walter was on my staff for several years at The Environmental Protection Agency. He was indeed a man of integrity and faith. I respected his opinions and activities in carrying out our mission. I know his influence on his family and those who knew him will last for many years. Sincerely, Bill Taylor
