Walter Vaughan


Walter Douglas Vaughan, 79, passed away at the home of his daughter, Jennifer Ann (Vaughan) Gardner in Winston-Salem, N.C., on Tuesday, March 27, 2018.

He was born June 27, 1938, in Leander, Ky., to the late Walter Nolan and Alva Cynthia (Hackworth) Vaughan.

He served in the U.S. Army and was stationed in Germany.

In early 1958, Walter met his future wife, Ann (Shauger) Vaughan, during a church dinner held by Garfield Baptist Church, Milwaukee, for local servicemen.

Walter will be remembered for his mischievousness and the way his eyes lit up when he was trying to pull the wool over your eyes. He will also be remembered as a man who loved his family and worked hard for them.

He leaves behind his wife of almost 60 years, Ann, and four children, Walter Douglas Vaughan Jr. and his wife Amy (Rutledge) Vaughan, Steven Eric Vaughan and Kimberly (Carroll) Vaughan, Jennifer

Ann (Vaughan) Gardner and her husband Casey Gardner and Mark Ethan Vaughan.

Walter is further survived by one brother, Roger Vaughan, and his three sisters, Daisey Elaine (Vaughan) Gregg, Judy Ann Vaughan and Linda Sue (Vaughan) Clouse, as well as many nieces, nephews, grandchildren and friends.

He was preceded in death by siblings Willis Gene Vaughan, Louis Nolan Vaughan and Wilma Jane (Vaughan) Croley.

Funeral service were held Saturday, March 31, at Reynolda Presbyterian Church in Winston-Salem, N.C.

A private burial will be at a later date.
