My parents were friends with Mr and Mrs Walters when we lived in Killeen. I would think it was so cool when Mr Walters would stop by in his police car to have coffee with mom and dad. I remember going to their house and Mrs Walters had a white dove that would fly around... My parents Gail and Joanne Towner passed in 2012 .. my condolences to the family

Charles Travis Walters, Husband, Father, Father-in-Law, Grandfather, Brother, Uncle, Grandpa Chuck, Chuck, Friend, Neighbor however you knew him, he was a good, honest, hard working, dependable, and caring man. I never will forget the many times we had, Camping, Fishing, Boating, Eating! Sharing life with those he loved so much Toyoko, his son Richard and Daughter Terrie. He and I met in Austin back when Terrie and I decided to get married. When I asked for his permission, and his blessing to marry the most precious things in his life. He looked me straight in the eye and told me that I had his blessing and his permission, but that I had to take care of her, love her, protect her and most of all never hurt her. I hope that I fulfilled all of those requirements and then some. He accepted me into his family, my son, John Reavis as his grandson. The grandkids Travis, Abby, Kelsi and Scott made him so proud, you could see it in his eyes, and in his heart. His wife Toyoko was his foundation, she cared for him as only she could, all the way to the very end, sitting by his side as he left this world. God blessed each of us with his presence, his kindness and his love. We will miss you dad, we will miss you alot. Thank you for everything, I look forward to the next time we get to camp, fish and BBQ together again. Love your favorite Son-in-Law. John W Purser
