    Seeing as how Energy Solutions Arena is only 23 years old, I don’t see how he could have worked there for 28 years.

    Also, “About 98 years old?” Real crack journalism there.

      He was 99 Years old, and started at the Salt Palace when they were still there. He was an amazing man and only deserves the most respect.

      Actually Wally would have been 100 years old this August 2015, he started back in the Salt Palace Days way before Engerny Solutions Arena, Delta Center, you get the jest. Larry Miller in later years promised Wally a job for “Life” because the players and fans enjoyed him so much. I must admit, and I agree with you that’s pretty poor journalism. But Wally was a great guy, he actually worked for the Jazz when they were the “Stars” I think they were called.
