He was predeceased by his parents, Fred and Dorothy and an older brother, Frederick A Fink, Jr in 2019.Walt was born on 6 Aug 1947 in Swainton, NJ to the late Frederick Arthur Fink, Sr. and Dorothy Mae Redden. Shortly after his birth, his parents and 4 siblings moved to Stone Harbor, NJ where he spent the rest of childhood. He graduated from MTHS in Cape May County in 1965 where he played and excelled in varsity basketball. He met his future wife, Sandra Jean Clarke at the age of 15 in Stone Harbor and they married soon after his college graduation from Pfeiffer College in Misenheimer, North Carolina in 1969. He worked as computer programmer for Unisys (formerly Sperry-Burroughs) and would remain with them until his retirement and return to Cape May County. He loved spending time with his family, traveling around the world while at Unisys, working around the house, fishing, and working on his computer. Walt was a loving father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. He was incredibly unselfish by always putting others first and will be forever in our hearts. A memorial service will be planned later in the year when family can travel. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorial donations be made out to the American Heart Association.
