Walter passed away surrounded by family at Evergreen Hospital, Woodinville, Washington on February 7, 2020 following a brief illness.

Walter was born in Lansing, Michigan on July 28th, 1937 and overcame the ravages of Polio having contracted the debilitating disease at age 16.  Walter went on to graduate from Michigan State University, marry the love of his life, and raise three children.

He had a successful business career with Sinclair Refining Company, later known as Atlantic Richfield (ARCO), in sales, marketing and real estate management roles spanning over 34 years.  Walt loved the outdoors and spent countless hours growing and grooming his beautiful yard and gardens.  He enjoyed hunting and fishing with friends and family and spent many years deer hunting with his father and son in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

Walter was preceded in death by his parents Eva & Bernard Tubandt, his daughters Tamara (Terry) O’Neill and Tera Tubandt, sister Carol (Tom) Schaefer, brother Alan (Kim) Tubandt and grandson Matthew (Kelsey) Tubandt.  He is survived by his loving wife of 59 years Susan Tubandt, brother Richard (Patrice) Tubandt, son Scott (Tammy) Tubandt, grandchildren, Luke (Kayla) O’Neill, Michael (Brittany) O’Neill, Jacob O’Neill, Zachary Tubandt, Lillianna Tubandt, great grandchildren, Callen O’Neill, Maclin O’Neill, Connor O’Neill and Michael O’Neill plus countless nieces, nephews and extended family.

Walt’s final resting place will be in Pittsburgh, PA in the Allegheny County Memorial Park Mausoleum in a crypt next to his daughter Tamara. A celebration of his life will be held at Walt & Sue’s home in Woodinville, Washington in the summer of 2020.
