RIP Walton Marine

I just heard the sad news and I thought I'd pass it on. Mike Walton, of Walton Marine has passed away on August 23rd. Those local to Salt Lake City I am sure have been to Walton Marine and dealt with Mike in the past.

I personally bought a ton of stuff from him and has been educated by his smart ass wit and humor. He was a great guy, said it how it is and was a great boater.

Sad news and a great loss for the local rafting community. He was indeed a character. I remember the first time I went in that little hole-in-the-wall shop of his. It took me awhile to figure out his dry wit. I thought he was BSing me or just pulling my leg, until I noticed the sly smile. I'll miss him. RIP MIke.

He taught me more about my own history (Russian) than I ever learned in school. That dude was smart. I always felt little talking to him, but at the end he always ended the conversation with a good advice on life.

That is really cool. And I'm assuming you spent your formative years here in the US, and likely similar to my experience where we did not learn anything useful about Russia, just that they were evil commies. What a disservice, full of untruths, and sad for our world knowledge.

Just another government propaganda.... they taught us to hate American capitalist pigs Obviously... that one stuck

And yes, I did finish high school here. Or I should say I laughed at science education here compare to what I was taught in the commie environment. Commies are tards when it comes to people control and government, but they sure know their science!

Sounds like some interesting conversations to be had. I still remember when I realized that out gov't was/is largely the evil empire, not the Russians, nor the cubans, etc. Not that other oppressive govt.'s were ok, but that we were far from the global savior we were taught in school.

Sorry for the loss of your friend.
