Tribute

William Robert Walters, Jr. reposed in the Lord on February 29, 2024 at home. Rob was born in Chicago to parents William Robert Walters, Sr. and Irene Edna Schoening. He and his sister were baptized at Saints Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church in Chicago. He lived in the greater Chicago area until he joined the Marine Corp in 1971. After the Marines, he worked in the non-destructive testing field, specializing in structural steel. As a pilot he operated helicopters in multiple industries for several years before returning to work as an inspector.

In 1989 Rob and Shelly (Eva) were married and raised their children Irene and Bill in the Williamette Valley of Oregon until his retirement in 2017. Once retired, they moved to Boise where he has enjoyed hunting, hiking with his constant companion doggy Gus, and sneaking chocolate covered raisins to Grace and Olivia.

Rob is survived by his sister Nancy Thompson, wife Shelly (Eva) Walters and their children Irene Hills (husband Deacon Jason) and Bill Walters. May his memory be eternal in Paradise!
