Walter Lee Babbitt Sr. of Groveland, Massachusetts, formerly of Boonton Twp., New Jersey, died suddenly on May 10th at Merrimack Valley Hospital in Haverhill, Massachusetts. Walter was born on September 10, 1920, in Boonton Twp., New Jersey to John & Ruth Babbitt.

Walter was proud to be a Christian and loved reading the Bible and listening to gospel music. The verses that he read were his source of strength and joy. He currently attended New Life Community Church of Georgetown, MA, and was a lifelong member of First Assembly Of God Church in Rockaway, NJ. His love for the Lord always came first, and after that came his love of family. He was an avid fan of all sports, and loved playing softball well into his 70's. He proudly served his country during W.W. II in the Army-Air Corps. He was employed for many years at Radio Frequency Laboratories in Boonton Twp., NJ.

Walter was predeceased by his gracious and loving wife Doris, and his beloved son, Walter Jr. He is survived by his daughter and her husband, Ruth Ann & Fred Greene of Northfield, N.H., and a son and his wife, Doug & Liz Babbitt of Groveland, MA; two sisters Shirley Young of Fort Meyers, FL and Audrey Glass of Denville, NJ; six grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; many nieces and nephews, and many others who just enjoyed calling him "Gramps".

Relatives and friends are cordially invited to attend his Funeral Service on Friday, May 14th at 10 AM in the New Life Community Church in Georgetown with the Rev. James McLaughlin officiating. Interment with Military Honors will be in the Rockaway Valley Cemetery, Boonton Township, NJ at a later date. Calling Hours will be held on Thursday from 5 to 8 in the Merton E. Roberts, Jr. and Conte Funeral Home, 14 Pleasant Street, Georgetown, MA 01833.

In lieu of flowers, please forward memorial contributions to: First Assembly of God Church, PO Box 242 Rockaway, NJ 07866, in support of the new building fund.
