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
