Born in Olympia, Wash. to Ivan DiBoff and Maude Ruby DiBoff on March 14, 1928, “Wally” was an 80-plus-year resident of the Juneau area, having moved here with his parents and younger brother Richard when he was approximately 3 years old.

Wally was a well-known and respected engineer throughout Alaska due to his years of work with the Buildings Section of the Department of Transportation and Public Facilities.

A celebration of Wally’s life will be held in the spring when many of his lifelong friends have returned to Juneau from their winter homes in the Lower 48.
