    Condolences from the Dale Knoll family, I’m the oldest son of Gene and Joyce Knoll. My mother was a daughter of Minnie (Vand De Zande) Vis. I use to come out with my dad and hunt on Wallys farm when I was a kid! I remember Wally had the biggest smile and was such a friendly gentleman. God bless!
