Perry M. Walters

Perry Michael Walters, 60, an avid fisherman both in the water and on the ice, died February 12, 2019.  Perry was involved with both Cub and Boy Scouts. Perry was born in Charlotte on October 31, 1958 to Ned and Beverly (Payton) Walters. Perry worked in Georgia for over 20 years. A Georgia drawl made Perry recognizable from his Michigan family and friends. In order to care for his father who was in poor health, Perry returned home to Michigan. For the last seven years Perry has been employed at Peckham Industries. Fishing was Perry’s main interest.  He loved spending time with a fishing pole in his hands and country music on the radio.

Perry is survived by his loving family; sister, Cheryl L. Pressler; and brother, Danny D. Walters.  

Perry was preceded in death by his parents; and brother, Lynn Walters.

A Celebration of Life service was held Thursday, February 21, 2019 at Pray Funeral Home in Charlotte, with Pastor Charles Jenson officiating. Interment in Maple Hill Cemetery followed the service.
