DEAD: Walter Chrysler

DEAD: ON THIS DATE

Walter Chrysler (aged 65)
American automotive industry executive

Walter Percy Chrysler (April 2, 1875 – August 18, 1940) was an American automotive industry executive and founder of Chrysler Corporation, now a part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles.

DEATH: Chrysler turned 61 in the spring of 1936 and decided to step down from an active role in the day-to-day business of the company. Two years later, Della died at the age of 58 and Walter, devastated at the loss of his childhood sweetheart, suffered a stroke. His previously robust health never recovered from this, and he succumbed to a cerebral hemorrhage in August 1940 at Forker House which is in Kingspoint New York. He was buried at Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in Sleepy Hollow, New York.
