JOHN F. WALTERS
John was born in Witney, England on October 19, 1944. He was predeceased by his mother Eileen, father Aubrey, and brother Kevin. John will be lovingly remembered by his wife Maureen, daughter Kelly, brother Brian (Liz); sisters, Carolyn (Fred) and Sharon; sister-in-law Candace (John), brother-in-law Mark (Lea); and sisters-in-law, Ginette and Diane. Also left to cherish his memory are his niece, nephews, great-nephews and many friends.
John had a great sense of humour and made friends everywhere he went. He enjoyed fishing and visiting friends at the lake. He also loved taking a drive out to the Half Moon in the summer. The Saturday morning crossword was another favourite of John's and a tradition that we will carry forward.
Tight lines and straight shooting, Dad.
In keeping with John's wishes, cremation has taken place no formal service will be held.

So very sorry to hear of John's passing. Having worked with John for many years in MPI's Customer Service depts., I know how good he was at his job, which wasn't an easy one, He assisted so many customers with their concerns over the years -something to be proud of. When we would bump into each other, after having moved onto different departments, talk was always about family, especially you Maureen (Mo) and Kelly. HIs quick wit and sense of humour were always present. To Maureen,Kelly and family, sincere condolences from my husband Earl and I. May all your special memories bring you comfort. John was definitely one of the good guys. And as we always greeted each other by our last names, I say, "Rest easy, Mr. Walters, my friend". I'm sure George Fox and the "2 Daves" were among the 1st in line to greet you. - Posted by: Pat Winn (friend/co-worker) on: May 13, 2020
I am so sad to hear of John’s passing. I loved to see his and Maureen’s smiling faces coming into Salisbury House for breakfast. He would always play the toy machine and hand out stuffies to the children in the restaurant. He will be missed, sending condolences to his beautiful wife and family at this time. - Posted by: Jessi Henderson (Server at Salisbury House ) on: May 09, 2020

Maureen and Kelly, I met John and Maureen on a Sunday at Kendel's for breakfast. John was so funny and up to no good most times when they came in. I haven't seen you in a long while but have wondered about the two of you. John always had a hug and a big smile. I'm so very sorry for your loss.

I'm so sorry for your loss Maureen and Kelly and family and friends of John. He was such a friendly man and seriously funny. He kept everyone on their toes with his comments too. He offered to help me anytime I had a question even though we didn't work in the same department. He explained things so well and always helped anyone at work. He was such a good hearted man. I pray God's comfort and peace over your hurting hearts. Hugs to all of you. - Posted by: Angela Stupak (Coworker at MPI) on: May 03, 2020
