Dr. William Everett "Bill" Walters II, 72, died from injuries sustained in an auto accident on Thursday, June 13, 2013. Born in Kansas City, Mo., at age one, his first beach outing was to Morro Bay, as his father was stationed at Camp S.L.O. By age two, he steered his first boat. Thus, began his life-long affair with adventure, water and sailing. Fostering this love, as a boy on Lake Quivira, Kan., he eventually sailed the world, finally mooring in Ventura and Morro Bay Harbours. Bill graduated from Shawnee Mission High in Kansas in '?58. He studied at Tulane University, then graduated as a KU Jayhawk in '?61. Following his father's footsteps, he graduated from KU Medical School '?65. He retired as a U.S.A.F Col., where he served as a flight surgeon in Vietnam and Thailand. He was Board certified in Psychiatry and Neurology and served for 20 years. He enjoyed caring for his patients at Atascadero State Hospital and in his practice. He will be greatly missed by all. Bill is survived by his long-time love, Marsha Walters; and loving children Tyler (Julie) Tad (Hilary) Allyson (Michael Starman) and Molly; step-son, Jeffrey (Jenny); sisters Candace and Marti (Jak); and brother, Bobby; grandchildren Ethan Isabella and Eithne; step-grandchildren Michael, Matthew, Julianna, Bryan, Reese, Dakota and Melody; and nephews Aaron and Patrick. He was preceded in death by his father, Dr. Byron Walters (Helen); mother Florence Yount (Raymond); and stepson, Bryan Catchings.
