My Granddad Ferrell would always take me down to Roy's Store for a cold drink and some M & M's. My Granddad was one of the ones that played checkers on the front porch of his store. Under his leadership Walter Volunteer Fire Dept. became one of the most well equipped volunteer departments in the county. He was a pillar of the community and will be greatly missed.
