Wayne R. Walters

Graveside Services will be held at Hillcrest Cemetery at 11:00 am Saturday, April 24, 2021 for Wayne Reginald Walters.  Wayne passed away at home Thursday, April 15, 2021

As a young man, he served his country in the United States Army. He retired from Hercules in Hattiesburg, Mississippi after proudly working there for many years.

He was such a generous, hard worker and gave it his all whatever the task.  He personally landscaped almost every house on his small street in Petal, MS, often using his own money to make Lingle Drive more beautiful.  He even landscaped the bank at the beginning of the circle.  His yard was a beautiful oasis, his home was warm and welcoming and many happy times were shared there by all who visited.  Wayne shared the latest, greatest jokes with everyone and his laughter and joy was contagious.  He lived his life as a humble servant to His Lord Jesus Christ and his heart to serve was evident in all that he did.

He was preceded in death by his beautiful, loving wife, Willa Dean Shows Walters, as well as his parents, Bertice Udell and Inez Walters.

He is survived by his beloved daughter, Lisa Joy Walters, as well as family members, friends and cousins who loved him dearly.
