Link, Walter W.

January 30, 1944 - September 22, 2015

Walter William Link, age 71, died peacefully on September 22, 2015 in Plano, TX.

Walt is survived by his wife, Louise; son, Daniel and his wife, Tia; daughter, Joslyn Meserve and her husband, Stephen; and grandchildren Ashley and Wyatt Link.

Walt was born on January 30, 1944 in San Antonio to Minnie Shultz and Otto Link. He was raised in Omaha and graduated from the University of Nebraska-Omaha. He married Louise Plechas in 1969. He was an active member of St. Andrew United Methodist Church and sang in the choir for many years. Walt was a huge fan of the Nebraska Cornhuskers and enjoyed fishing. He was a very caring person, extroverted and welcoming to a fault, a great storyteller and an even better story subject.

A service is scheduled for Monday, September 28 at 11 AM at St. Andrew United Methodist in Plano, with a reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the North Texas Food Bank or the Plano Symphony.

I had the pleasure of meeting Walter via the BI group that meets on Fridays at the Plano Chamber. He was a dear man with a kind heart. He will be missed by those of us on earth but the angels are rejoicing in Heaven.

Got to know Walter and Louise on an Alaskan Cruise. What a great couple and Walter was so thoughtful and exclusive. Louise, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Steve and I just learned of Walter’s passing! Won’t ever see a whale without thinking of Walter!

Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again.
