Walter Francis Moffett
Walter Francis Moffett, 83, passed from this life on Wednesday, May 7. He was born in Medina on Nov. 25, 1930, to Leo Elinor Keese Moffett and William Enoch Moffett.
Known by family and friends as "Inky," he loved his family and friends. He also loved the Lord and was a member of the Church of Christ.
Inky was baptized in 1950 prior to enlisting in the United States Navy. He served during the Korean Conflict and later in the US Naval Reserves. He was a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Aside than serving in the navy and attending school in Houston, Inky lived his entire life in Bandera County.
He worked at the Bandera Electric Cooperative until 1974 and had fond memories of the friendships he developed there.
A most selfless, kind and gentle person, Inky lived his life by following the greatest commandment in the law as well as by following the second as set forth in Matthew 22:36-39. However, instead of "loving your neighbor as yourself," Inky loved others more.
He is survived by Catherine, his beloved wife of 58 years; daughter Deborah Moffett Pipes and her husband John R.; sons, Stephen Carl Moffett and Darrell Walter Moffett; three special grandsons, Kristofor John Pipes; Stephen Carl Moffett, Jr. and his wife, Kim; and Albert Jacob Moffett; five great-grandchildren, Collin Moffett, Adrian Moffett, Jacob Moffett, Kylie Moffett, and Klaire Anna Pipes; sisters, Sylvia Wilson, Evelyn Reese, Elaine Crouch, Winifred Thomas and Delores Uribe; and brother Lawrence Moffett.
He was predeceased by his parents and brothers, Maurice Moffett, Carl Moffett and Richard Moffett.
Services with military honors were held Saturday, May 10, at the Oak Rest Cemetery in Medina with Mark Fender officiating. Pallbearers were Raymond Batto, Russell Vanderzee, Ron Barton, Shawn Faglie, Scott Faglie and Josh Faglie.
