In 1961, he started the Sawyer School of Aviation at Deer Valley Airport.The company later expanded to include aircraft sales, maintenance and charter flying and became Sawyer Aviation.
Waltz enlisted in the Army right after Pearl Harbor and soon joined the 390th Bombardment Group flying B-17s.
From a base in England, he flew more than 30 combat missions and, after earning stateside leave, volunteered to fly 10 more combat missions.
