George Robert Walters
George R. Walters passed on October 30, 2019 at the age of 72. He was born on February 15, 1947 to Robert Walters and Maria Hablawitz in Biberbach, Germany.
George was preceded in death by his father, Robert Walters; his mother, Maria Sukow; his stepfather, Wesley Sukow; his sister, Susie Gilchrist, and a grandson Ryen Vickery. He is survived by his life partner of 23 years, Mary Messick; his stepdaughters, Jennifer McMillan (Matt), Brandy Vickery (Paul); four grandchildren, Julie Dale, Jordan Williamson, Joshua McMillan, Dakota Vickery; two great-grandchildren, Iizak and Willow, and his loving “partner in crime”, Buster the bulldog.
George was a Vietnam veteran that proudly served his country, a devoted Union Iron Worker of over 40 years before he retired in 1998, and the owner of George’s Performance and Cycles in Norfolk, VA for over 10 years. George has many passions: playing 9 ball, racing/training homing pigeons, and Harley Davidsons. He loved being outdoors and was always doing and going somewhere. He loved just sitting on his mower for hours and cutting his grass.
His lifelong friends kept him busy, Hogbear (John), Tim, Owen, Jerry, Justus, and the so many more special friends, there are just too many to name. He loved every moment of life. He left us all with memories to share for a lifetime.
