Ashley Cresthaven Condo Community lost our eldest member, Wally Joseph Kusenko at 98 years old. Wally was a proud World War II Veteran, a BRONZE STAR recipient, and extremely proud of his service to our country. He once stated he felt like a General. He was our General in West Palm Beach. Wally, in his "dressed up scooter proudly having attached the American Flag to it" managed to scooter all around the West Palm Beach area. His best friend, Charlie Snyder stated many store owners and local people recognized him and would chat with him. He became a community celebrity. There was a time when his Scooter broke down, and the local police escorted him home. Wally was friendly, eccentric, and a bit comical in a friendly way. You couldn't miss him riding around in his dressed up scooter. Rest in Peace General Wally you will be missed.

Wally Joseph Kusenko, age 98, of West Palm Beach, Florida passed away on August 22, 2020. Wally was born in Hartford, Connecticut on April 14, 1922. He was a World War II Veteran serving with The US Army. Wally is survived by his wife, Charlotte Sofia Kusenko and his daughter, Karen C. MacKenzie.

Wally will be laid to rest with Military Honors at South Florida National Cemetery in Lake Worth, Florida.
