Walter William Lepperd Jr., 81, passed away on June 12, 2018 in Miami VA Hospital. 
Beloved husband of Fiona (Molloy) Lepperd, father of Christopher, Susan, Matthew, and Andrew Lepperd, and stepfather of Christopher Crespo. Grandfather of Caitlin, Zachary, Jared, Hannah, and Scarlett Vandervelde, and Dakota, Liam, Paige, and Carson Lepperd. He is preceded in death by his first wife, Phyllis A. Baker, and grandson Ethan.
Born in Amboy, Illinois, Walter graduated from Dixon Illinois High School in 1954. He was a proud veteran of the U.S. Navy, and served as an Engineman during the Korean War. He was a longtime employee of General Motors in Lordstown, Ohio, and Miller Brewing in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where he lived in the village of Egal, Wisconsin.
He wintered for 10 years in the Florida Keys before moving permanently to Key West with Fiona and Sammi, their Jack Russell Terrier, in 2012, where he managed El Mar RV Resort in Stock Island and assisted Fiona in her ongoing musical career. Walter was always a welcome presence at Fiona’s concerts, making everyone feel warm and at home while he proudly relished in her performance, allowing the love their relationship to be brought to the evening, always adding to the evening’s enchantment. Walter will always be with us in the beauty of Fiona’s music.
