Trelby Gerald Walters

January 25, 1940 — August 24, 2022

Trelby “Gerald” Walters, 82, of Sterlington, LA, passed away on August 24, 2022. Funeral service will be held at 11:00AM Tuesday, August 30, 2022, in the chapel of Mulhearn Funeral Home Sterlington Rd. Monroe with Mr. Nobby Walters and Rev. Nolan LeBeaux officiating. Interment will follow at the Northeast Louisiana Veterans Cemetery.

Gerald was born to Ishmeal and Verda Walters on January 25, 1940, in Winnsboro, LA. He graduated from Crowville High School and went on to enlist in the United States Air Force. During his eight years of service, he became a Sergeant and kept his troops well fed with his cooking, a skill he used throughout his lifetime for many friends and family. His fried fish was a favorite of many.

Other than his family and friends, Gerald had a love for veterans, music, fishing and golf. He started playing the harmonica in grade school and then mastered the guitar, both of which he used to perform in several local bands over the years.

He retired from selling cars after 29 years and then became a licensed auctioneer. Entertaining was a joy and a stranger he did not meet.

Gerald was preceded in death by his son, Timothy Gerald Walters; brother, Joe Walters; sister, Nellie Louise Walters; and son-in-law, Gregg Strawbridge.

Survivors include his two daughters, Sharon Strawbridge and Brandi Edmunds (Tim); son, Jared Walters; nine grandchildren, Joy Strawbridge, Kole Maxwell (Carley), Emilee Phillips (Cason), Jenna Thompson (Taylor), Seth Maxwell (Carla), Juli Strawbridge, Levi Walters, Logan Walters, and Eli Fraley; six great grandchildren, Brentlee, Avrie, Jude, Sawyer, Marlowe, and Riggs; brother, Nobby Walters (Betty); and sister, Laura LeBeaux (Nolan).

Pallbearers will be Joe Walters Jr., Mike Walters, Brian Walters, David Dailey, Kole Maxwell, and Seth Maxwell. Honorary pallbearers will be members of the AMVETS.

Memorials may be made to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
