In 1965, he developed King Sour,  an innovative and healthy alternative to traditional sour cream and then went on to create an entire line of healthier options , nationally known as "King" products. He remained President of the company until 1993, when he sold the business to care for his beloved wife  Melinda , who became ill. Walter was a dedicated businessman but his true passion in life was his wife Melinda and daughter Susan .
