Walter Carl Grier

March 25, 1930 - February 23, 2022

03/25/1930 - 02/23/2022

Walter Carl Grier, of Hendersonville went home to be with the Lord on Wednesday, February 23, 2022 following a short illness.  Carl was born in Holly Springs MS to Bernard and Ethel Grier. He was preceded in death by two sisters, Mellie Frankum and Louise Borne and two brothers, Walker Grier and Mac Grier.

Carl will be loving remembered by his wife of 68 years, Betty Carl Grier.  They were members of Fletcher First Baptist Church.  He will be missed greatly by his children:  Jeff Michael Grier (Tammy); Paula Gail Janes (Terry); and Walter Jason Grier.  Five grandchildren; Jeff Grier (Hope),  Hailee Robinson (Dan), Heather Medlin (Chris), Michelle Jackson (TJ) and Ayla Grier; and six beloved great grandchildren.

 

Carl spent two years in the Army and six years as a aircraft mechanic in the Air Force.  He also served in the Korean War.  They traveled the world during this time and enjoyed the time they had in the military.

 

Carl was an avid gardener who showed his love for the Lord by giving to others.  There was hardly a time when someone visited that they didn’t go home with vegetables from his garden.  He loved using his hands for woodworking and was very creative and designed many distinctive and unique items. Another love of his was daylilies.  Many people in Henderson County have daylilies in their yard because Carl just had to give them some to enjoy!

 

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to Fletcher First Baptist Church.

 

A graveside service will be held at Forest Lawn Cemetery on Monday, February 28, 2022 at 1:00pm.
