Educated at Walsh, Vittoria and Simcoe, Walter studied surveying under Thomas Walsh. From 1871 to 1884 he handled shipping and bookkeeping for A. & T. McCall, his brothers Alexander and Thomas' lumbering business. In 1884 he joined the Canadian Nile contingent and served with the Nile Expeditionary force, returning with a "most interesting" collection of Egyptian curios. He also collected coins and was considered a local authority on the subject. He re-engaged in lumbering, and married Madge Ferguson, the widow of C. C. Jackson. In 1896 he was appointed secretary-treasurer of South Norfok Railway Company. Walter later became secretary-treasurer of Simcoe Gas Company. In 1897 he was appointed municipal clerk for the town of Simcoe, a position he held until his death. He was also superintendent of the town's waterworks and secretary of the Public Utilities Commission. His careful and efficient administration of town affairs was said to have been most conscientious. He died at his home on Stanley Street in Simcoe. Madge continued to live in Simcoe after Walter's death until about 1934, when she moved to Edmonton, Alberta to live with her son, Clayton L. Jackson and her grandchildren.
