Walter, Charles William

Obituary

Charles William Walter, 77, of Plano, TX peacefully passed away at home on April 11, 2018 and will be greatly missed by his family and friends. 

 

Charles was born on July 21, 1940 in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania to Herman and Elizabeth Walter.  “Charlie,” as he was known to his friends, was the eldest of four siblings. We suspect this is probably where he honed his wicked sense of humor. Charlie loved learning. He graduated from St. Nicholas High School with honors, earning a full scholarship to King’s College. He later went on to serve his country in the U.S. Navy where he first discovered his love of computers (and a pretty strawberry blond named Barbara, who would eventually become his wife).  Charlie worked as a Systems Analyst at Eastern Airlines where he collaborated on several top secret projects, in partnership with NASA, resulting in the development of technology that is still in use today. Charlie was always ready for the next challenge which took him and his family from Pennsylvania, to New York, North Carolina, Florida, and ultimately Texas, making life-long friends along the way. Charlie believed you should take time and enjoy life but he was never one to sit still for very long. In retirement, he held the CEO position at a few companies and sat on the Board of Directors for several others. Anyone who knew Charlie knew he had two loves: his family and the church. Charlie was fiercely proud of his family, especially his grandchildren and great grandson, and was a devoted man of faith. Charlie was extremely involved in his church and held the Fourth Degree designation with the Knights of Columbus, an organization with which he had been active for over 50 years. One of the accomplishments he was most proud of was managing the building project for Mary Immaculate Catholic Church. Charlie always believed in giving back and always thought he could make a difference. 

 

Charles was preceded in death by Barbara Walter, his loving wife of 30 years. He is survived by his daughter, Christine Daye and her husband Alex; his son, Richard Walter and his wife Cindy; his two grandchildren, Ryan Walter and Courtney Walter; and his great-grandson, Troy Walter. His is also survived by his two sisters, Betsy Peters, Carolyn Klimek and her husband Edwin; and his brother, Paul Walter and his wife Maureen. 

 

A memorial service will be held at 10:30am this Monday, April 30th at St Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church, 2700 W Spring Creek Parkway, Plano, TX 75023. 

 

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you do an act of kindness in Charlie’s name, spend some quality time with your loved ones, and remember him well. 

Please leave the family condolences and share memories on this website.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
