Dear Family of Wally Stevenson, Wally was the PGK of Gate of Heaven Council 468 and rose through the ranks to attain the status as the only State Deputy of Suffolk County to this day. Wally was always a gentlemen and each and every time a Grand Knight of Gate of Heaven attended the State Conventions he would always reach out to the new Officer and offer any assistance needed to make the new GK'
s job more enjoyable. My experience was to reach out whenever I visited the Conventions to apprise him of our success and failures in keeping Gate of Heaven viable. We are one of the first council on Long Island 1899 in Huntington. Wally helped in the establishing a Home for this council and again strived to make our Council shine. He will be sorely missed by me and my brother knights of Gate of Heaven his home council, which he remained throughout his membership. It was truly a pleasure for Gate of Heaven to see Wally off to his final resting place here in Huntington, Now I venture to place our K of C. Grave marker to allow all our members to know where he can be found for placement of his American Flag.
