LAURINBURG — James "Bud" Everett Walters, 73, passed away on April 23, 2016, at Morrison Manor after a courageous battle with cancer.

Bud was a son of the late Edward and Alma Peele Walters born June 9, 1942 in Maxton. He was the devoted husband of 44 years to the late Theresa Gail Jeffcoat Walters, who passed away on Feb. 2, 2012. Having served six years in the United States Army, Bud was a proud veteran.

Though he had retired from Edwards Wood Products after many years of dedicated service as a full-time truck driver, he enjoyed driving locally, part-time, for Carolina Crating until recently. Bud also took pleasure in fishing, NASCAR and playing his guitar. His greatest times were those spent with family and friends.

Bud was also preceded in death by his infant son David Walters and his siblings Marvin Walters, Dewey Walters, Carlisle Walters and Betty Jo Caulder.

Surviving are his sons Jim Walters (Lynn), Gary Walters (Christy), and Philip Walters of Laurinburg, daughter Kim Brayboy of Laurinburg, six grandchildren: Jordan Walters, Kelsey Walters, Dylan Walters, Chris Walters, Tonya Brayboy and Chris Brayboy, great-grandchildren Caleb Walters, Mason Walters, and Brianna Brayboy, and a host of family and friends.

Graveside services will be at 2 p.m. on Tuesday at Hillside Memorial Park officiated by Pastor Horace E. Warwick. The family will receive friends prior to the service at graveside beginning at 1 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be given in his memory to Scotland Regional Hospice, P.O. Box 1033, Laurinburg, NC 28353 or to Scotland Cancer Treatment Center, 500 Lauchwood Drive, Laurinburg, NC 28352.
