This morning, we received news that our good friend and member of the TechtalkRadio Show Wally Kniaz was found dead at his residence. An Autopsy is planned to determine cause of death however he had become a vibrant member of the show with his quick wit and outlook on technology. Our thoughts are with his family and with the listeners that have grown to love him on the radio show.

Praying for Wally's family now...I pray his passing was peaceful and that the Lord of Hosts met him well; and since He called home one of His brightest, and funniest stars, heaven just got a makeover & an upgrade!

We'll miss you Wally -- Shine on bro!

It's these somewhat random and senseless events that make us stop for a second and just think. I didn't know Wally except for what little exchanges we had on the TTR chat but he became part of my Sundays, part of my life and part of me. It makes me want to call my parents and hug my kids one more time for the night...

My families thoughts are with his family and we are sure he well and in good hands now. Please keep us informed of any new information.

Thanks for all these wonderful and heartfelt comments. I will be sure to share these with Wally's Family. I have been finding lots of video and there is a ton of audio with Wally as well.

Thanks Again, you all made Wally's Sundays fun.

The last message I received from Wally.  He said he would talk to me later, so I'm still waiting...well, Wally?

According to Slick: today would have been Wally's birthday. As Slick stated: "I still miss him and think about him a lot...wish he were here... "

I am sure that we all do miss him and what he brought to the show.
