Terry "Bucky" Walters

September 30, 1959 — January 23, 2024


Terry “Bucky” A. Walters, age 64 of Harrisville, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, January 23, 2024 at his home.  He was born on September 30, 1959 in Portage to Dean and Joan (Borzick) Walters.

Bucky worked in his early years at the Pickle Plant in Harrisville. After graduating from Westfield High School in 1977, he went on to building pole buildings for his dad’s company, Walters Construction. On July 31, 1986, he went to work at Brakebush Brothers, starting on the line and working his way to Supervisor of the Wastewater Treatment Plant. He worked there for 37 years and enjoyed going to work every day.

In his early years he raced snowmobiles, lawn mowers and dirt bikes. He traveled many places to race and had very memorable trips to Florida with friends.

For many years he was a member of the Harrisville Lion’s Club. He was a proud and active member of the WWOA (Wastewater Operators Association) and the Harrisville Sportsmen’s Club. He was very passionate about the Harrisville Sportsmen’s Club and helped organize many charitable events.  For nearly 3 decades he was a Hunters Safety Education Instructor and enjoyed sharing his knowledge of firearm safety and getting youth involved in hunting.

He loved the outdoors, whether he was on a fishing trip to Canada with his dad and brothers, or just hunting or fishing in the area. He had many adventures duck hunting throughout the years. Between Buffalo Lake, Harrisville, or the family ponds. He especially loved gatherings at the family cabin. He enjoyed it all.

He loved all hunting and enjoyed his trips to Colorado elk hunting with his friends. He loved to sing, whistle, rocking in his rocker and his Pepsi hat. He played on softball leagues, many knowing him for his pitching prowess, archery, bowling, pool, baseball dart and trap leagues. He was thrilled to play in the over 60’s softball league the last two years.

Bucky was also known for his Pig roasts, which many have enjoyed at various events over the years.

He was a registered game farm owner and loved raising and hatching birds, such as Quail, Pheasant, Mallard Ducks, Peacocks, Turkeys, Chickens and many more.

Bucky enjoyed staying up in Crandon every year, spending time with family and friends and fishing early in the morning with a cup of coffee rocking in his rocker.

He had a special bond with his grandson Jeremiah. He loved teaching him to hunt, fish and spending time with him.

Bucky will be remembered for his enormous heart and wonderful sense of humor and smile.

His departure comes as a great shock and a deep wound that will be felt by his entire family, friends, the community and all who knew him.

Bucky married Angela Powless. One night out with some friends, he spotted Angie and after that night, he told his mom he had met someone and was going to marry her. They married on August 5, 2000 in Harrisville.
