|Melvin C. Walter
November 24, 1952 – July 22, 2016
Melvin C. Walter, 63, of Culver passed away on Friday, July 22, 2016.
Melvin was born on November 24, 1952 in Laporte, Indiana. He was one of several children
born to Raymond (Pauline Tinkey) Walter who are deceased. Melvin was an avid hunter,
fisherman, and outdoorsman. When he wasn’t on the water or in a tree stand, he could be
found outdoors hunting for wild mushrooms of all varieties.
Melvin loved Lake Maxinkuckee; he spent countless hours on the lake catching “the big
ones” and cursing “the small ones”. Melvin was known around Culver for his zucchini
cupcakes, and deer jerky. He worked in masonry and stone work. His talent can still be seen
and lives on throughout town.
Melvin is survived by 5 children: Tracy Keener, Jeremy Barclay, Raymond Walter, Rose
Sortino, Lance Walter; many grandchildren; siblings: Jack, Dawn, Dian, Deb, Pat, and Cheryl;
and numerous nieces and nephews.
He will be missed by many.
Melvin’s wishes were to have no services.
