 Donald Martin Walters, Jr., age 86, of Cutlerville, passed into the arms of Jesus on Tuesday, February 12, 2019. "I was given a very special gift yesterday afternoon. I was holding on to this amazing man when Jesus took him home. The rock of our family, friend to many, mentor to nameless first responders, Christian always showing God's love, he was a gift. He had a servant's heart. I know he was greeted in heaven with "Welcome home good and faithful son". I love you, Dad." Don proudly served his country in the U.S. Air Force during the Korean War and went on to serve his community as a firefighter for the City of Wyoming. Don was one of the first five full time firefighters hired in 1965 and retired as a Captain in 1999. He was preceded in death by his parents, Donald Sr. and Valerie; sister, Betty Hayes; brother, Wayne Walters; and a grandson, Scott Maranda. Don will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Nancy; daughters, Donna (Gary) Ranger, Debbie (Dave) Maranda, Nona (Bob) Biggs; grandchildren, Christopher (Deedra) Everett, Amy (Steve) Carvey, Kelly Hammink, Sean (Angela) Maranda, Ruby Biggs; eight great grandchildren; and brother-in-law, Ronnie (Sandy) Skierkowski. Honoring Don's wishes, cremation has taken place. A memorial service will be held at 12 noon on Saturday, February 16, at Gethsemane Lutheran Church, 3152 Clyde Park Ave. SW, Wyoming, MI. Pastor Lee Welker will officiate. Memorial contributions may be made to the West Michigan Humane Society.
