Walter Wolfrey Obituary

Walter L. Wolfrey was born on August 9, 1940 in Corapeake, North Carolina to the late Willie Mack and Bessie Wolfrey. He entered eternal rest on November 25, 2023, in Suffolk, Virginia.

He was a member of New Middle Swamp Missionary Baptist Church.

Walter led a straightforward life, embracing simplicity, and possessed an unassuming nature. Engaging in carpentry brought him joy, and he also had a fondness for riding bikes, having been a member of Swamp Crawlers Motorcycle Club at one point.

He held a strong belief in the value of hard work and dedicated himself to diligent service at Newport News Shipbuilding until his retirement.

He leaves fond memories to his sons: Leslie Wolfrey (wife, Connie) and Lamont Wolfrey; his grandchildren: Elise, Myriah, Leslie Wolfrey, Jr. and Amiracle Wolfrey; a great granddaughter, Lennox Holliman, a sister; Margaret Lee, a sister-in-law, Beatrice Wolfrey; two special nieces, Jacqueline W. Robertson and Shelia Spence, along with a host of nieces, nephews, and friends.

A viewing and visitation will take place on Thursday Nov. 30, 2023, from 4pm to 7pm at the funeral home.

A celebration of life service will be held on Friday Dec. 1, 2023, 11am at New Middle Swamp Baptist Church.
