Dear Ms. Elliott,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
Since he was buried in Minden, Douglas County in Nevada, we suggest that you check the Record Courier, the local newspaper serving Minden-Gardnerville and Carson Valley; the Douglas County Public Library; and the Douglas County Historical Society for his obituary, if one was written.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
I found this from the Nevada Obituary page. Very short obituary. http://nevadaobits.tributes.com/obituary/show/Walter-L.-Pickering-72992562
Mr. Pickering's grave can be found at findagrave.com https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/27929930/walter-lee-pickering
Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
Have a great day and don't let the virus get you.
