Walter Phelps, a dedicated small business owner and Korean War Veteran, passed away at the age of 93 on February 21, 2024, in Copperas Cove, TX.

Walter was known for his exceptional sense of humor and unwavering love for his family. He leaves behind fond memories of being very loving and funny to those who had the pleasure of knowing him. In addition to his dedication to his family and business ventures - owning half a dozen small businesses over the years - Walter was passionate about golfing. He could often be found on the golf course several times a week indulging in his favorite hobby.

His military service during the Korean War as part of the Hospital Corps showcased his commitment to serving his country with honor and dedication. Beyond his professional and military endeavors, Walter's love for golfing shone through as one of his defining interests.
