George Paul Walters, 71, an attorney who practiced law in Broken Bow for more than 40 years, passed away on Monday, May 20, 2013. George was born November 24, 1941, to Rev. C.J. and Zera Mae Walters in Hollis, Oklahoma. He graduated from Broken Bow High School in 1959 and Oklahoma State University in 1963, where he majored in Banking & Finance. In 1969, he graduated from the University Of Tulsa College Of Law. George served southeastern Oklahoma as a lawyer and volunteer, including Chairman of the Oklahoma Tourism Commission, Broken Bow City Attorney, Broken Bow School Board Attorney, counsel to several Rural Water Districts, counsel for the Choctaw Electric Cooperative, Broken Bow Municipal Judge, and President of the Broken Bow Library Board when it became part of the state library system. He was a member of the First United Methodist Church of Broken Bow and served as Chair of the Administrative Board. He served for many years as a guardian ad litem for McCurtain County children, Chairman of the McCurtain County Democratic Party, President of the Broken Bow Chamber of Commerce, and mentor/coach of the Broken Bow High School Mock Trial Team. George is survived by Kaye Walters, his wife of 50 years; his daughter Jill Walters, son-in-law Robert Pace, and granddaughter Catherine Pace, of Amarillo, Texas; and his son Jay Walters, daughter-in-law Staci Coleman, and granddaughters Doran and Drew Walters of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. He is also survived by his sister and brother-in-law Carolyn and L.R. Jones of Tulsa, Oklahoma; brother and sister-in-law Jack and Chris Walters of Austin, Texas; brother and sister-in-law Patrick and Karen Walters of Tulsa, Oklahoma; and mother-in-law Dashiell Keirsey of Denton, Texas; as well as a host of nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents; father-in-law Harry Keirsey; and niece Sara Jones Phelps. In addition to supporting his community and clients through his professional and civic activities, George spent his leisure time supporting golf courses, book stores, movie theaters, and record stores. Probably his favorite pastime, however, was spending time with his family, all of whom adored him but regularly groaned at his jokes. The memorial service will be at the First United Methodist Church of Broken Bow on Wednesday, May 22nd at 10:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Myeloma Institute for Research and Therapy Development Office, UAMS, 4301 W.
