The Seattle pinball community suffered a great loss when Chris Walsh passed on April 25th. Chris was one of the main driving forces behind the creation of the NW Pinball and Arcade Show back in 2008 when it was held at the Seattle Center. Although we were never exactly sure of his official role in the organization, during the show it seemed like he was the host because of his constant presence and his friendly personality. Chris had a welcoming smile, something fun and insightful to say and was someone we always looked forward to seeing at the show. Outside of pinball Chris and his family ran the Delta Rehabilitation Center (aka the Snohomish Chalet) from 1979 to 2020. This kind hearted man will be missed by many – RIP.
