|Larry "Don" Walters|
Larry "Don" Walters, age 74, of Odessa passed away peacefully at his home on Friday, March 29, 2019. He was surrounded by his loved ones and devoted dog, Dixie. He was born in Walters, OK to Lloyd and Delilah Walters on October 26, 1944. He married Sandra Jean Wood in Odessa on March 17, 1962 and they had just celebrated 57 years together.
Our dad's greatest passions in life were his wife, his family and pipelining. He worked hard all of his life. A young husband and father by 17, he knew the fate of his family rested on his shoulders. He stepped up to that responsibility and took care of us all in whatever way he could until he took his last breath. Even in his last moments, his thoughts were for the love and lives of his family.
He showed his devotion to our mother, Sandy, by caring for her at home as long as it was possible. He was nearly as devoted to his job of pipelining, retiring only to take care of mom. He could talk pipelining to anyone that wanted to. He could rehash jobs of the past and discuss jobs of the present.
Dad was an avid gardener and he loved fishing. One of his greatest joys was catching a 56 pound record breaking Blue Cat out of Lake Spence. (He had the certificate to prove it!) He enjoyed classic cars, and quirky as it sounds, shelling pecans, even earning the name, "Pecan Don."
Daddy will always be remembered as a hardworking, family man.
He was preceded in death by his parents: Lloyd and Lucy Walters and his older brother: Dale Walters.
Those left to cherish his love and memory are his wife: Sandra Jean Walters of Odessa; sons: Ronnie Walters and wife Sondra and Cody Walters, all of Odessa; daughters: Diana Patterson and husband Cecil of Odessa and Christie Landfried and husband Johnny of Axtell, TX; brothers: Cecil Walters and wife Ellen of Aztec, NM and Jackie McCain of Odessa; nine grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; and his beloved dog: Dixie.
