Walter David Stidham Obituary
Walter David Stidham

Newark - Walter entered into heavenly rest with his Savior on September 10, 2018, after struggling with a battle he couldn't win, cancer.

Walter was born in Licking County to the late James D. Doss and his mother Christine S. Hammack, (Seago), who survives, on January 26, 1962.

Having moved to Gatlinburg, Tennessee in 1976 with his family, he began working at a young age, and never backed down from work. Walter was baptized on May 02, 2004, at Seymour Baptist Tabernacle, in Seymour, Tennessee. Walter moved back to Ohio just a few short weeks ago to make a new start, which was cut way too short.

Besides his mother, Walter leaves behind two beautiful daughters, Lela Christy Stidham and her very special mother, Kim of Sevierville, TN; Miranda (Logan) Phinezy of Sevierville, TN; his brother, David (Frannie) Stidham of Knoxville, TN; a special aunt, Suzie (Spurgeon) Kidd of Newark, OH; cousins, Jason Campbell of Newark, OH, Tom Campbell of Newark, OH, Ginny Spurgeon of Columbus, OH, and many friends he has met over the years in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, and Sevierville, TN. He also has two half-sisters, Patty and Teresa, in the Youngstown, OH area.

A very special Thank You to Kevin, who was so kind and caring during Walter's stay at the LMH hospice unit.

Since Walter's friends live in the Tennessee area, I humbly thank each and everyone of you. Jesus called his name, and Walter went into his arms, where he is at rest, with no more suffering.

No calling hours will be observed.
