GILFORD, NH - Walton "Walt" F. Stockwell, 86, of Wesley Way, died Friday, December 21, 2018, at Forestview Manor, Meredith, he lived 31, 430 days.

Walt was born on December 2, 1932, in Worcester, MA, the son of the late Walton F. and Phyllis L. (Skerry) Stockwell. He spent nearly 30 years in Sterling, MA, his adopted home town, moving to New Hampshire in 1995.

Many people remember Walt as "The Flagman", his hobby, and from which he presented many lectures on flag history with his wife. He received a degree in Business Administration from The Evening College of Clark University. Walt spent nearly 40 years in the computer field for a large insurance company in Worcester. He retired early, which started him on a varied career of people related jobs, which gave him much personal satisfaction. These included: National Park Service Ranger, U.S. Forest Service Information Specialist, Mountain Guide, Events Coordinator, and Nordic Ski Instructor.

Walt was also a very active volunteer for much of his adult life, including many that were youth or historically oriented. He believed in the concept of "Giving Back" for what he had received from others. He received many volunteer awards and recognition, including the Boy Scout "Silver Beaver Award".
