Walter J. Case, age 57, of Manahawkin, NJ passed on Monday, January 4th at Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch. Wally was raised in Middletown, NJ with his parents Linda and Walter and his three siblings Brad, Tyler, and Marcy. Growing up, Wally’s love for football started with the Middletown Chargers in Pop Warner. As his prowess and athleticism shined, he went on to play for Red Bank Catholic where he was a tri-sport athlete in football, wrestling, and track. In football at RBC, Wally was a star-athlete leading the team in tackles, was a multiple-time captain, received the Lombardi Award, and was an All-Monmouth team member. In wrestling, he competed at the Unlimited weight class and for his light weight he was outstanding on the mat. He was then recruited to play football for Springfield College in Springfield, MA, (he also wrestled Heavyweight). He was a 2x All-American, All-team Captain, and graduated with a Bachelor of Science. After college he traveled to Padua, Italy to play and coach for the Professional American Football League for the Podova Saints. He played offense & defense where he won league championships as a player and coach. After returning from Italy, in 1987 Wally played as a Linebacker for the New York Jets. He finished his coaching career at Red Bank Catholic.

Wally began his professional career with Harris 3M/Lanier that would “challenge and inspire his competitive nature”. He would immediately find success in the industry by receiving countless promotions and sales/management awards. He would go onto start his own recruitment firm, work for RICOH, and finish his outstanding career in business as a Vice President of Sales at TGI Automation.

He spent his weekends golfing, clamming, gardening, and spending time with friends. Wally was an incredible friend to all that knew him, but he was an even better son, brother, uncle, and father. He is survived by his three children Michael, Cory, and Connor. He always put his sons first, whether through his work-ethic, coaching, or being their role-model. He will be forever missed and never forgotten.

A memorial gathering will be held at Thompson Memorial Home, 310 Broad St, Red Bank, NJ on Saturday, January 9th, 2021 from 12:00-3:00pm (Tributes will begin at 2:00).
