Walter Kenneth "Walt"  Fulton
Walter “Walt” K. Fulton, 67, of Lexington Park, formerly of Plattsmouth, NE, died Veterans Day November 11, 2015 at Fair Oaks Inova Hospital. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather and friend.

He is also survived by two children: his daughter Jennifer Cook and Wayne Cook of California, MD and his daughter Amy Kettelle and Joshua van der Smissen of Lexington Park, MD.

He served twenty years in the Navy retiring honorably as a Chief in 1988. The discipline and patriotism he learned in the Navy never left him, as friends and family will attest. After his military service, Walt joined the civilian workforce as a technical writer with PRB/Northrop Grumman Corporation retiring in 2008. In 2011 he worked as an MSF Motorcycle Safety Instructor.
Walt was an avid Nebraska football fan, had a deep love for Country, family and riding his motorcycle. His hobbies included Hunter Safety instruction, SCRC Chapter 290 First Officer and Chaplain, GWRRA-MD-I Chapter Educator and member of the PaxRiver skeet club. He was a member of Hollywood United Methodist Church, The American Legion, Disabled American Veterans and University of Nebraska Alumni.

Walt touched the lives of many people with his smile and generosity, and maintained his trademark sense of humor all the way to the end. Friends and family are invited to attend a life celebration on Friday December 18th at 4-6pm at Mattingley-Gardiner Funeral Home. His internment will be at a later date at Arlington National Cemetery. Memorial contributions are welcome in Walt’s name to the Wounded Warrior Project.
