Robert Walters

August 10, 1927 — June 25, 2018

Brevard, North Carolina

It is with deep sadness that the family of Robert G. Walters shares the news that he passed away on June 25, 2018, at age 90. Bob, a resident of Brevard since 1992, was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. After serving in the United States Army Air Forces, he studied industrial engineering at the Carnegie Institute of Technology, where he met his wife-to-be Gailey (Bedorf). After graduation Bob embarked on a career in engineering and manufacturing leadership, mostly at Celanese Corporation. He was an active member of the Shriners and the Lions Clubs. Bob was preceded in death by Gailey; and by his father, Glyndwr R.L. Walters; his mother, Margaret (Hancock) Walters; his stepmother, Annabelle (Vernon) Walters; and his sister, Faith Bates.

Bob married Faith (Allen) Walters in 1980, and for the past twenty-six years the couple made Connestee Falls their home. In addition to Faith, Bob is survived by three children, Donna Walters Kozberg (Ronald), of Franklin, Tennessee; Pamela Karmeris (Kenneth) of Matthews, North Carolina; and Robert B. Walters of Asheville, North Carolina; and by stepdaughter Christine Reilly (Thomas) of Dayton, Ohio. He also leaves behind nine grandchildren, Sean Dinneen, Robert M. Walters, Kelly Pace, Steven Walters, Mariel Kozberg, Kendra Banks, Christopher Karmeris, Colleen Wiseman, and Elizabeth Reilly; as well as seven great-grandchildren.

A memorial service celebrating Bob's life will be held at 11 a.m. on July 14th at Faith Memorial Chapel in Cedar Mountain, with Celebrant Gatha Dickson officiating.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Shriners Hospital for Children, 950 W. Faris Road, Greenville, SC 29605.
