Paul Glenn Walters, 80, of Mountaintop, entered into eternal rest on Thursday, February 8, 2018 in the comfort of his own home.
Born and raised in Ringtown, PA on March 16, 1937 son of the late William and Derrella (Briggs) Walters.
Paul married his beloved Janet L. Fettermen on July 4, 1960 in a two-day celebration on the family farm complete with fireworks. He raised his family in Elysburg, PA and was active in the Boy Scouts of America as both a scout and Scout Master. He graduated from Cunningham Twp. High School. Paul was very well liked wherever he went. While working at PP&L as a welder he was known for his fun-spirited practical jokes. Whenever he caught someone in a prank his gleeful chuckle gave his nickname, Paul “Hee Hee” Walters. He was also a favorite while working at Knoebels Grove in Elysburg.
Paul was a loving and devoted husband, father, and friend. He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Janet Walters of Mountaintop; Children: Kevin husband of Alexandra Walters of Feeding Hills, MA; Karla wife of Ted Grozio of Mountaintop; Kelly wife of David Hilscher, Poughkeepski, N. Y.; and Grandchildren: Stephen, Christopher, Matthew, Evan, Ted, Olivia, Taylor, Nathaniel, Jamie, and Nicole.
Along with his parents, Paul was predeceased by his brother Frank and sister Derrella.
Funeral services were held from the Rothermel-Heizenroth Funeral Home, Elysburg PA. Rev. JP Bohanan officiated. Interment will be at the convenience of the family in the United Methodist Cemetery, Ringtown, PA.
