Carl “CJ” Walter We are deeply saddened to share that Carl “CJ” Walter passed away on August 6, 2020, after suffering a major stroke in November of 2019. A son of the late Carl A and Rita M. Walter, he was born and raised in Reading, PA and graduated from Central Catholic High School. He served in the US Navy which brought him to sunny Northern California. When his time in the Navy ended, he went back and forth from the East Coast to the West Coast where he eventually settled and raised his family in Northern California. He retired after 25 years from Kaiser Cement and went on to work for 25 years at Sherwin Williams where he retired in 2015. CJ enjoyed life to the fullest and was a proud husband, father, brother, uncle and friend. CJ was a consummate gentleman; kind, goodhearted, easygoing and hardworking . He was a generous and caring man who was always available to help family, friends and others without hesitation. There wasn’t a stranger that he knew and he welcomed people with hugs, smiles and laughter connecting immediately with those he interacted with. He had an immense love for his annual golf tournaments. Enjoyed a friendly banter while playing cards or pool and loved dancing and making people laugh. He was a master at the BBQ and was happiest when he was hosting and entertaining friends and family. This dear man will be missed by his wife, Robin, three daughters (Cindy, Kim and Christina), two stepsons (Chad and Sean), six grandchildren (Tyler, Nichole, David, Bradley, Finley and Carlyn), his brother (John A. “Jack” Walter), several nieces and nephews in PA, extended family in the Bay Area and a massive network of life-long friendships. He was predeceased by his brothers Frank C. Walter and Frederick J. Walter. A Mass of Christian Burial was celebrated at St. Bonaventure R. C. C., Clayton, CA. Condolences may be expressed at

My wife and I were both very sadden to hear of Carls' passing.I went thru bootcamp and Hospital Corps school with him and then three years at the Oakland Naval Hospital. Shortly after that we returned Pa. He was in our wedding Party and we had many good times together.
After Carl moved back to Calif. we did get to see him a few times on his visits to Pa and we did get to visit him once in Calif. He was a great guy and enjoyed life. I often regret that over the years we lost contact with each other. Rest in peace CJ and god bless your family.

I am also deeply saddened to hear about Carl's passing. Although I only knew him from Navy bootcamp, (Great Lakes Ill., Co.304 in 1958), he made a big impression on me. He was one of my buddies, always smiling and happy. God bless him and his family and friends. May he rest in peace.
