Walter "Wally" J. Malins, RIP
Walter “Wally” J. Malins
April 22, 1947 — July 15, 2016
Yesterday, we received word that our very dear friend, Wally Malins, passed away. Those of you who ever attended the Disney Hometown Toonfest knew Wally. He was very much a part of the Toonfest and was always there with a smile, a handshake, and probably a cool libation for you.
I knew Wally as a generous soul. A man of kind heart and a wonderful laugh. He loved time with the cartoonists and did all he could to make us welcome.
Our hearts and prayers go out to Kaye and the family. We will miss this wonderful man. There will be from this day on, a very large space left in Marceline that will be impossible to fill.
Rest well, Wally.
