Remembering Mass Bass Friend Wally Balchunas

To all members of the Massachusetts Bass Federation it is with heavy heart that I report to you that we have lost another friend, Wally Balchunas of the South Shore Bass Masters. Wally passed away Saturday of a heart attack. He will be missed by all. Wally was a guy that would do anything for a friend. He had a big heart and once you met him you knew this. He loved coming to the Federation Youth events. This is a man that will be missed by more people than I can count. To his family and close friends Jim D’Ambra, Colleen McKay and Wally’s friends in the South Shore Bass Masters the Massachusetts Bass Federation passes along our deepest sympathy for your loss. Instead of flowers his family would like donations to be made to the Massachusetts Bass Federation in his name for the Federation Youth Program. On the note line please put Wally Balchunas
