I see so many similarities between Walton and Elizabeth Usher, whom I work with. Love of running and nature. I'm terribly sorry for the loss of such a special man. I will pray for strength and solace for your family during this difficult time.

My uncle, Walton Usher, was a fine man whom I respected very much. Notwithstanding witnessing the death of his young son in a horrible tragedy many years ago, Walton was somehow able to keep on living, provide for his family and treat everyone with whom he interacted with fairness and decency. He will be missed very much.

So sad for our loss, great guy, fond memories at ARC!

I enjoyed many good times with Walton. He sailed with me from time to time. Though I haven't had had a chance to spend time with him lately, he is still in my thoughts. Merle, very sorry you have lost Walton..

Brenda and I were sorry to read of Walton's passing. We were first friends through the Augusta Sailing Club, neighbors and I even talked of buying his paint store; but knowing Walton, he probably talked me out of it. Our prayers are with his extensive family. Great memories are never lost...
