Fair Winds and Following Seas, Shipmate.

One of the best teachers I had at Orange Park High School. I still remember Mr. Walter's stories about Marvin Dipwort and his bicycle mounted theodolite.

Wonderful teacher, he will be missed. Rest In Peace Mr Walters. Gone but not forgotten.

Mr. Walters was my favorite high school teacher and instilled in me a live of learning! I still tell people about Martin Dipworth and the bicycle mounted theodolite! Rest in peace!

We are so sorry to hear of Johns passing. We heard about it from our son Davids Facebook contact with Caroline. We enjoyed the VP-24 ties and the Hollycrest ties. Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you celebrate his life and Salvation.

The joy and passion he instilled in me for math, logic, and methodology has been a constant source of opportunity and joy in my life. I am incredibly thankful I had the opportunity to learn from him.

My wife Danielle McMahon Day and I attended OPHS and were lucky enough to have Mr. Walters. He was one of the most impactful teachers we had and comes up in our conversations with each other and our own kids frequently to this day. Im sure were not alone and his memory will live on for many years.

Mr. Walters always had a sparkle in his eye even after a long day of teaching. It was a pleasure and an honor to have taught with him. My heartfelt condolences to the family.
