Bruce J. Walthers Bruce J. Walthers, president of William K. Walthers, Inc. from 1958 to his retirement in 1984, died of cancer last Sunday at the age of 87. During his tenure, the family business — the company bears the name of his father, who founded it; his son Phil succeded him as president — expanded from a hobby manufacturer to a major distributor of other companies’ products. In a sense, those massive Walthers catalogues published every year are his legacy. Milwaukee Journal Sentinel obituary; memorial page on Walthers.com. Via OGaugeWatch.com.
