Walter was so much fun and a very dependable guy. He was loved very much. I will always remember how much he loved my dad and brother Steve. He certainly will be missed. Cousin Trudy Shelton Searcy and husband Wendell.

I have fond memories of riding the old white mule with my cousin, Walter. Who could forget the georgous 1941 Plymouth convertible. What a memory of his bicycle ride from Evansville to Hanson, KY. The summer fun of spending time with Walter and those baloney sandwiches, double cola’s and the movies. Walter will be remembered for his goodness to my father, Roy Shelton and my brother Steve. I could go on with so many precious memories. My cousin is at rest now and will never be forgotten. Adrian (AG) Shelton
