Obituary for Walter Scott Nance Jr.

Walter Scott  Nance Jr.
Walter Scott Nance, Jr.

July 9, 1933-July 7, 2018

Walter Scott Nance, Jr. left this world for his next adventure on Saturday, July 7, 2018. Walter was born on July 9, 1933 to Thera and Walter Nance of Temple, Texas, the eighth of eleven children. He served in the U.S. Air Force during the Korean War. After completing his military service, Walter enrolled in college where he studied science and was a member of the boxing team. He graduated from Texas A&M University-Commerce in January 1966. After graduation, he traveled around the world working as a geophysical engineer in Europe, the Middle East and South America. He was able to experience many adventures like the time he was served a piranha for lunch but decided to have it preserved instead to bring back home. After starting a family, he opened a welding, painting, and auto salvage business in Troy, Texas. He cut two cars apart and welded the front of one to the back of another to the delight of his wife, Terry. He rode a bull for the first time for his 65th birthday. He loved scuba diving and motorcycles. Nothing and no one ever stopped him. He fought until the end.

Walter leaves behind three daughters, Heather and Tom Madler of Georgetown, TX; Delana Nance of Gig Harbor, Washington; and Amber and Larry LeBlanc of Lafayette, Louisiana; 7 grandchildren: Keegan, Christopher, Hannah, Bradley, Lucas, Joshua, and Brittany; one sister Stella and Joan of Crawford, Texas; one sister-in-law Rita Nance of Troy, Texas; and many nieces, nephews, and friends that are family.

Visitation will be held at Hewett-Arney Funeral Home in Temple, Texas on Tuesday, July 10th from 6-8 pm with funeral services on Wednesday, July 11th at 10 am, 14 W. Barton Ave Temple, TX. Internment at Roberts Cemetery in Troy, Texas.
