But I will remember him most fondly as a presence at Walt Disney World.
Walter Cronkite replaced the original narrator of Spaceship Earth in 1986. My first experience on Spaceship Earth in 1987 featured Walter Cronkite. I will always have a place in my heart for his narration.
But that's not the only place I'll remember him at Walt Disney World. When I returned to WDW on my next trip in 1992, I enjoyed his contribution to the Magic of Disney Animation area at the Disney-MGM Studios. He played a wonderful comedic straight man to Robin William's manic improvisations in "Back to Neverland".
I still have those memories of Walter on TV and at Disney. He will be greatly missed.
Rest in Peace, Walter.
