Obituary of Ward Lee Walcutt

Ward Lee Walcutt, age 84 of Blanchard, passed away June 4, 2019 at Prestige Centre in Mt. Pleasant. A memorial service will take place Thursday, June 13th, at 11:00 AM, at the Sylvester Community Church. Pastor Richard Taylor will officiate with a luncheon to follow. 


Ward was born September 6, 1934, the son of Floyd and Violet (Resler) Walcutt. After graduating high school, Ward went on to proudly serve his country in the United States Army. Once he returned home, he worked for Hitachi in Edmore for many years before buying a sand and gravel company that came to be known as Walcutt Sand and Gravel. While running his business, Ward made many life-long friends and acquaintances. He would often joke that he was actually retired since he enjoyed his work so much. 


Ward enjoyed bowling and even sponsored a team for many years. He was a regular at the Crystal Fountain Restaurant where he enjoyed his breakfast, lunch, and dinner most days. 


Friendly, easy going, and outgoing were all words used to describe Ward. He had a great sense of humor and a laugh that will be missed by many. 


Left to cherish his memory are his siblings, David (Barbara) Walcutt, Dorothy (J.C.) Burns, and Myla (Ron) Harvey, many nieces and nephews, and great-nieces and nephews. 


He was preceded in death by his parents and sister, Nellie Bauman.
