SSGT. DONOVAN BLAZE WALTERS

SSGT. Donovan Blaze Walters, 28, of Albany, GA., passed away unexpectedly on October 30, 2019. He was a graduate of Kentwood High School. He was a Christian and member of Providence Church in Albany, GA. Donovan or Blaze as he was known by some was currently serving his country in the United States Marine Corps. He had just recently celebrated his 10th year in the corps. He was an Artillery Mechanic or “Gun Doc” for short. His passions included his family, cooking, surfing, writing poetry, shooting, and dog training. He was a published author with 2 books so far. The ocean was his love. He had plans with his wife Ashley to open a restaurant by the ocean after he retired from the Marine Corps. Everything he did he excelled at. He was an incredible husband, father, and friend. There was no one who didn’t love Wally.
