Together with his wife, the couple owned and operated a dairy farm on the Number Three Road from 1956 – 1964. The family moved to a farm on Route 26 in Lowville, operating the farm until retiring in 2000. The farm is now owned by their son and daughter-in-law, Dan and Sherry Beyer and family.  After their retirement, Walter and Nancy moved to Sharp Street in Lowville.

Mr. Beyer was a member of the Hilltop Rythemeers Country Band throughout his lifetime.  He was a member of the Valley Snow Travelers, a former member of the Tug Hill Fish and Game Club, and a former board member of Production Credit, Watertown.

Walter was an avid hunter, and enjoyed his fish ponds.  He was an extreme socializer with family and friends.
