Mr. Marvin Lee Walters, 84, of Wallburg, transitioned to be with his Lord and Savior on Thursday, January 19, 2023 unexpectedly while at his home. He was born on November 30, 1938 in Greenville County, South Carolina to the late Hoyt Lee Walters and Grace Mahaffey Walters. Marvin was a longtime member of Green Street Baptist Church and had the belief that God had given him a purpose and he strived to fulfill that idea on a daily basis. He believed one purpose was to make and retain the beauty of the land which he did through his various ventures in land development. Marvin dedicated over 30 years to Roadway Express as an office manager and after retirement started businesses in transportation audit and development ventures. He was a strong and determined individual that focused on his love for God and family. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a sister, Linda Walters Hughes.
Surviving to cherish his memory is his dedicated wife of 63 years, Patricia Walters of the home; son, Christopher Lee Walters and wife Beverly of Winston-Salem; daughter, Tonya Walters Runyan and husband John of Colfax; six grandchildren, Joshua Lee Walters and wife Kelsey, Tori Walters Ashby and husband Will, Spencer Christina Walters, Chase Franklin Runyan and wife Anna, Nicholas Chandler “Nick” Runyan, and Kate Renee’ Runyan; and five great-grandchildren, Emmeline Walters, Everette Walters, Warner Ashby, Amelia Ashby, and Charlotte “CC’ Runyan.
