He was raised in Flushing and received his education at Holy Cross, a local catholic school. He received an Associates Degree in Finance from St. John’s University in New York City. After completing his education, Walter enlisted in the United States Army and was stationed in Germany. After his honorable discharge from the Army, Walter worked on Wall Street in New York for many years. He moved to Green Bay, WI in 1990 where he started his own painting company, Ivanhoe’s Painting, and continued with that until he retired in 2006. He moved to Thorp, WI in June of 2010 with his girlfriend so he could enjoy retirement in a beautiful rural community.

He is survived by his father, Adrian Iwanczuk of Flushing, NY; one sister, Natalie Iwanczuk, of Hartford, CT; his wife, Natalie Naze of Green Bay, WI; two sons: Joseph Iwanczuk of Brookville, PA and Thomas Iwanczuk of Delano, MN; three daughters: Elizabeth Iwanczuk of Aurora, CO, Christina Iwanczuk of Parker, CO, and Alexandria Iwanczuk of Stanley, WI.
