Walter was born on June 15, 1936 in Fort Worth, Texas, the son of Jack and Irene Lucille McFarland. He met his wife Cecelia Mary Adams and they were married and shared 50 years together as well as having a daughter and 3 sons. Walter was a people person that never met a stranger. He was the kind of person that once you met him, you did not forget him. If you ever needed anything, he was always there for you. He was a man of honesty and integrity and said what he thought. He enjoyed old cars, welding, woodworking and landscaping. If there was a skill that he needed to complete a project, then he would figure it out and do it on his own. His career consisted of working at Long Horn Steel from 1954 to 1956 and then he was employed at General Motors where he retired after 32 of years of service. Walter was a man of deep faith as he came to know the Lord as a young man. He was baptized at the age of 33 at Glenview Baptist Church and is a current member of Friendship Baptist Church. He has a very close group of friends which includes 6 pastors. He will be deeply missed by his friends and family. Walter is preceded in death by his son, Leslie Kem McFarland.
The family wants to thank Community Hospice of Texas for their care of Walter and his family. In lieu of flowers they request memorials may be made to Community Hospice of Texas, 6100 Western Place #105 Fort Worth, Texas 76107.
