Dr. Schewe became my friend as my sister was dying from cancer in 2007. He was kind enough to officiate at her funeral and was a great comfort to the family. I am truly sorry I waited until now to contact him but he would understand.
I will really miss His humor
Walter Schewe will never be forgotten his prayers,war stories,advise,encouragement,laughter. I could go on and on! Our prayers are with you sweet Chris & family Sharon&John Ashcraft
Such an awesome man. I will always treasure his encouraging words and advice. I do remember his jokes and precious smile. His office at Promise was delightful. I think of him often, my yard is filled with the bright Yellow Four O'clocks and Mint he shared. I will plant another Rose Bush in his memory. God Bless his family during this time.
Precious friend, you have been and always will be loved and respected.See you on the other side.

Walter Schewe was such a kind & gentle man! He touched so many lives during the time he was on this earth. I know that Chris, his children, & grandchildren will miss him dearly! I pray for all of you to receive the comfort of the Lord during this time. "Another soldier has come home," as Janet Paschall sings so beautifully.
Walter always had a big smile and a good word for me at church every Sunday. I was also blessed to fly with him many times. He taught me a lot about being a good pilot and a man. Many will miss this GREAT MAN.
I have many memories of Bro. Walter from Christian Center. Was such a sweet Godly man. My prayers go with Chris and the family.
Bro. Walter is such a strong man that loves the Lord. What a wonderful example. I know he is hearing
"Well done my good and faithful servant" now. Chrissie you are very special to me and I pray God will comfort you and bless you greatly.
Dr. Schewe was always such a blessing to me. I met him through my grandmother and we shared an instant connection. Each month I was invited to Promise Hospital to perform spiritual songs in sign language during his Saturday morning services for the patients. I truly enjoyed every minute with him and learned so much from him. He will be greatly missed by so many that loved him!
CHRISSIE, O How Bo & I will treasure the MEMORIES of OUR Wonderful friendship! ALL OF THE laughter- tears of joy when our Daniel came (now 23) and ALL of the PRANKS He & I pulled on each other! I will NEVER FORGET the REAL stuffed Black bear we put in his shower up in ARKANSAS! He NEVER FORGOT either!! HAHA And I will never forget the Christmas Party where I made Walter- Richard Brown & Bo dress like the 3 UNwise MEN! LOL
Our lives have been FOREVER enriched & blessed by your friendship & OUR LOVE for One Another!
He was Truly ONE OF THE GREAT ONES!
LOVE TO YOU ALWAYS,
Debbie, Bo & Daniel Stewart
A wonderful uncle indeed.Prayers for Aunt Christine and family..May the Lord be with you and shower you with peace and comfort. From: Terry & Sherry.
WAY TO GO POPS!!! You lived a great life and taught us so many valuable life lessons. I will cherish all the times hanging out with A at the house, having you entertain us. There was never a dull moment. I can still hear your laughter when we did something stupid and the sterness in your voice when we did something wrong. You loved us no matter what, and for that, I thank you "Pops"!
CHRISTINE YOU ARE IN MY PRAYERS AND THOUGHTS. PASTOR SCHEWE WAS A GREAT INSPIRATION AND A GENTLE SOUL.SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS. CATHERINE HOGG
The Final Salute
“Brothers in Arms”, Military men and women down through the centuries, have traditionally exchanged “Hand Salutes” as a sign of recognition and as a way to render courtesy and respect one to another.
This “Hand Salute” is the last that we shall render to Walter Leonard Schewe our “Brother-in-Arms”. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Walter. And to Walter it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank him for the devoted and selfless service he rendered to his country during WW-II and the Korean and Vietnam Wars while serving in the U.S. Air Force. Walter, we commend you for your honorable service. You are a true patriot, who served with honor and distinction. You upheld the finest qualities of an American patriot warrior: courage, commitment, Generosity, sacrifice, love and devotion to family and country. You were a true friend. We bid you a sad farewell. You will be dearly missed from among our ranks. Be at Ease. Rest in Peace.
On behalf of the 1,261 military veteran Legionnaires of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion and the 233 veterans of VFW Post 2238 in Shreveport, Louisiana, we extend our sympathies and our condolences to Walter's family and loved ones.

Mr. Schewe was one of my favorite customers when I worked at Pioneer Bank on Mansfield Rd. I enjoyed visiting with him. He was such a sweetheart.
brother walter always had a hug for you and an encouraging word.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
May God give his family comfort, peace, and strength as they share wonderful memories. We had the privilege of knowing Walter and his sweet wife, Christine when he went to church with us at University Baptist. Walter was a great Sunday School teacher and we so enjoyed hearing him tell of God's love for us. Rest in peace Bro. Schewe.
Chrissie and family,
What can be said about Walter? He was a wonderful man of God who loved his Lord and Savior and his family with all his heartt. I met him at a time in my life when I needed guidance, which Walter so lovingly provided, along with much prayer and love. Unconditional love. That is what defined Walter Schewe. Thank you for sharing him with us.
Love, Ronni and Dean Aiken
