HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) - A man many called a hero was remembered Wednesday in Hampton. Walter Segaloff was laid to rest, with services held at Rodef Sholom Temple.
The retired businessman and philanthropist died Sunday of a heart attack after his morning workout.
Segaloff founded the Achievable Dream Academy in Newport News back in 1992. It was an effort to give children believed to be disadvantaged, because of poverty, a better chance at success in life. Over the years, his after-school tennis and tutoring program evolved into full-time extended day schools for more than 1,200 children in kindergarten through 12th grade.
Segaloff is survived by his wife, two sons, and three step-children. He was 82 years old.
Police say a 2-year-old and a 23-year-old Navy sailor based in Virginia were killed in a crash on Interstate 64 in southern Indiana near Corydon.
