Obituary for William J. Walton

Bill passed away December 17, 2020 in Willoughby. He was born March 27, 1943 in Cleveland.

He was a radiant and devout Christian. He worked for 25 years at The First Baptist Church in Willowick, calling and praying for and encouraging shut ins. Later, Bill was very active at the YMCA in Willoughby, known to all as, “The Greeter.” Bill was always praying for and inspiring many people with his radiant smile and upbeat attitude in spite of being wheelchair bound with cerebral palsy. His final 13 years were spent at Continuing Health Care Nursing Home in Mentor, where he lived out his years still being God’s Ambassador and “Ray of Sunshine” to all who knew him. He will be missed by so many people.

Survivors include his sister, Katharine (Walton) Peck; nephews and niece, Paul (Diane) Domanovics, Darrell (Karen) Domanovics, Lisa (Gregory) Bennett, and David Domanovics and great-nephews, Bradley and Christopher Domanovics and Ryan and Ethan Karis.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Ina and James Walton.

Family suggests contributions be made to Christ Community Church of Willoughby, 36407 Ridge Rd., Willoughby, OH 44094.

Bill was a true friend and always praying for everyone. I enjoyed sitting with him and having lunch at the y in Willoughby whenever I could. He was an inspiration to me and to many because of his positive attitude, in spite of his many health problems. Bill's laughter was contagious, and he was always smiling. Bill is truly missed already because of covid rules that separated us back in March. I can picture him worshipping Jesus and visiting with everyone in heaven. Please know that he is loved and will never be forgotten.
Fondly,
Barb Yafanaro

One thing he will always be remembered for more than anything else... is that he loved Jesus above all! He was always praising the Lord! Gonna miss him when we visit that food court at the mall big time! But glad we will see him again in heaven’s perfect version of a food court. :)
