George Walters

August 27, 1932 — September 22, 2022

GEORGE "AL" WALTERS, 90, of Paxton, passed away September 22, 2022, at his home.
George was born August 27, 1932, at Seminary, Mississippi, to Drew Edward and Ora Ada (Moulds) Walters.

George served in the Army National Guard and was called into active duty service during the Korean War. Following his honorable discharge, he returned home to Mississippi and married Grace L. Hall on January 9, 1957, at Covington, Mississippi.

George drove a truck for several years and had also worked on a tugboat during his time in Mississippi. The family eventually moved to Denver, where George worked in construction for many years building homes, town homes, nursing homes and on bridge crews. He traveled a lot to support his family doing these jobs. In 1975, he also helped in the building of Gerald Gentleman Station until it was finished. He ultimately started work with the Hershey School system as their janitor and later Paxton Schools. George ended his working career as the janitor of the Post Office in Paxton.

George loved to fish. He also took great pride in his gardens over the years. George cherished his family, especially the time he spent with his grandchildren. He enjoyed telling stories about his childhood. He had songs he would sing anytime anyone he knew came around and one of those was the 1st verse of Johnson's Old Grey Mule.
