From Eula Trezevant Matthews 12/25/2020. I met Deputy Walthers thru my son Terry Don Matthews at Margaret B Henderson Elementary School. Terry Don and Dennis Walthers, son of Deputy Walthers.Terry Don and Dennis Walthers were close school friends. In later years I met and became friends with Mrs Walthers, Widow of Deputy and Mother of Dennis. I still remember The Walthers family as I regularly drive past their home as I travel on West Illinois Avenue in Wynnewood

I knew Buddy....later briefly talked with his murderer, James Walter Cherry. A cold individual with no remorse.
