A.E. Wallace “Walley” Maurer, age 94, of Dublin, passed away Tuesday, December 15, 2015, at his residence.
He was born in Winnipeg, Canada, on September 11, 1921 to the late Rev. Carl D. and Mary G. Maurer.
Shortly after graduating high school, Walley joined the United States Army where he served as a prison guard during World War II.
After the war, Walley earned his PhD. With his Doctorate in hand, he enjoyed teaching English Literature at The Ohio State University for over 50 years.
Walley thoroughly enjoyed harassing the city council and Chief of Police whenever he could. He was an active member of the Dublin United Church of Christ and was a big supporter of the Dublin Irish Festival. In his spare time, he could be found tinkering with his model trains as the Chief Conductor of the Maurer Railway. Walley also liked to play the piano and often shared his talent and love of music in various local retirement communities.
He will be dearly missed by his son, Randy (Kim) Maurer of Fredericktown; grandsons: Randy and Ryan Maurer; and daughter-in-law, Rebecca Maurer.
Walley was preceded in death by his parents and son, Jeffrey Maurer.
