It is with great sadness that the family of Robert William Walters of Cary, NC (Raleigh 38 years previous) announces his passing on Saturday, October 14, 2017 at the age of 81 years. "Bob" will be lovingly remembered by MaryAnn, his wife of 60 years, and his children, Bob (Peggy), Linda (Norman), and Kris (Mark), as well as his brother Ronald Walters and sister Barbara Walters, both of San Diego California. Bob will also be fondly remembered by his ten grandchildren, Robert (Maureen), Steven, Kenny (Mandy), John, Sarah, Nicole, Laura, Marianna, Leslie, and Thomas, and his great grandchild, Holden.

Bob was known for his easy-going, "jokester" style personality. He was a dedicated husband and family man who loved spending time with his family and enjoyed traveling, swimming in the NC Senior Games (achieving over 80 gold, silver and bronze metals) and volunteering his time and talents to organizations including the Special Olympics, Meals on Wheels and the Knights of Columbus, as well as always being a ready volunteer for church activities. In addition, he was a Korean War veteran and worked for IBM for 34 years.

A private family funeral mass will be held in memory of Bob with interment at the columbarium at St. Raphaels Catholic Church in Raleigh, where he was a founding member.
