When Walter's mother, Edna Hommel died 8 Mar 1941, Walter is listed as one of her surviving children; but when his father, Herbert Hommel, died 8 Mar 1952 Walter is not listed with the other surviving children. I could find nothing on Walter during the 11 year period between his parents' deaths. When the 1950 US Census becomes available in April, perhaps, if he was living at the time, you can find him.
