Wilford L. "Willy" Walters, 81, Duncansville, went home to be with the Lord on Friday evening. He died peacefully at home, surrounded by his family.

He was born in Duncansville, son of the late Eli and Sarah (Clapper) Walters. On Dec. 9, 1961, he married Carol Alene Jackson.

He was preceded in death by six siblings; and two children: Kerry and Peggy.

He served with the U.S. Army from 1958-60 and was stationed in South Korea. He began his own lawn-mowing business at the age of 12 and worked as a self-employed painter, landscaper and general handyman for most of his life. He was a member of Carson Valley Church of the Brethren, where he served over the years in various roles, including Sunday school teacher, youth adviser, trustee and a member of the financial board.

Willy enjoyed the outdoors and was an avid hunter, sports enthusiast and storyteller. His greatest joy was to spend time with his children and grandchildren.
