Walt leaves behind to cherish his memories his wife, Lois Burton; two daughters, Crystal Burton-Midgette (Marvin) and Lisa Etheridge; four sons, Orlando Twyford, Walter Johnson, Jules Johnson and Demetrice Coles; grand- children and great- grandchildren whom he loved and adored; sisters, Helen Burton, Clettie Burton, Loretta Handy (Norman) and the late Evelyn Dawkins; brothers, Thomas Burton (Barbara), Benjamin Burton, Kelvin Burton (Vicky) and Kenneth Burton (Vivian); two aunts, Gloria Graves and Evelena Gunter (Alfred); uncle, Robert Burton and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Walt mostly worked for himself in home improvement but his trade was not limited to that, he was a man of many trades. If he ever worked on your car or repaired your home, you knew his work. He was a humble man, a proud man, a man with a heart of gold. If you knew him forever met him you never forgot him. Even though his work is done here on earth, he will never be forgotten.
