Donald Walters

August 31, 1943 — April 25, 2024

Mt. Sterling, Kentucky

Donald Walters, a beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, and friend passed away on April 25, 2024, at his home in Mount Sterling, Kentucky. Born on August 31, 1943, in Middletown, Ohio, to the late Osa and Bonnie Kimberlin Walters, Donald brought laughter and joy to all who knew him with his outgoing and humorous personality. He was the life of the party at family gatherings and social events, spreading positivity and happiness wherever he went.

 

A gun enthusiast and lover of the outdoors, he was known for his infamous stories.  Donald found solace in hunting and trap shooting. He also cherished moments spent riding his motorcycle, dancing, and cooking for his family whom he adored immensely. His favorite holiday was St. Patrick's Day, where he would dress up as a Leprechaun, adding a touch of whimsy to the celebrations.  Donald graduated from Banning High School in Wilmington, California, and pursued a successful career in the tool and die industry. He was a dedicated employee and a skilled craftsman in his field.  A devoted Christian, Donald found great comfort in his faith and believed in Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior. His love for life and infectious spirit will live on through his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, who all share his zest for living life to the fullest.

 

Donald leaves behind his cherished spouse and childhood sweetheart, Anita Thorne Walters, daughters Shannon Stull (Stan, Jr.) and Leila Walters (Jeff Willoughby), as well as seven grandchildren, Kayla Barnett (Andrew), Karl Dowda, Kyle Stull (Brooke), Angel Kent, Rachel Grant (Dillon Moore), Meshell Grant and Noah Stull; four great-grandchildren, Lincoln Kent, Logan Kent, Mallory Kate Stull and Michael Stull; sisters, Eurie Pickens (John) and Marilyn Glowczewskie (Frank); brother-in-laws, Daryl Dries and Jonathan Hoffmeier; sister-in-law Laverne Thorne.  He also leaves behind extended family, and many friends who will miss his presence greatly.
