May 22, 1932 ‒ October 03, 2019

Loudonville, Ohio

LOUDONVILLE: Walter Baldner Jr. passed away Thursday, October 3, 2019 in his home. He was 87.

He was born May 22, 1932 in Loudonville to parents Walter & Jennie (Hyde) Baldner Sr. Walter graduated from Loudonville High School with the class of 1950 and worked as a caretaker of Camp Walhonding for over 45 years until retiring. He also farmed on the family farm most of his life.

A great outdoorsman is how one would describe Walter. He was an avid hunter, especially coon hunting, fisherman, and gardener. Walter was a lifetime member of the NRA and the Loudonville Eagles 2275. A simple man, he truly lived off the land by what he farmed and hunted and will be missed by those who love him.

He is survived by his children Melisa (Paul) Creager, Peggy (Tom) Claes, and Eddie Baldner; grandchildren Corey, Rachel, Rick, Ross, and Nick; 3 great grandchildren; special nephew Mike (Karen) McCauslin; stepchildren Susie (Marvin) Sprang and Jack (Dee) Snyder; and his guard dog Jake.

In addition to his parents, Walter was preceded in death by his wife Cotta Baldner; his second wife Janice Baldner; and siblings George Baldner, Grace McCauslin, Mary Lowe, and Juleah Zook.

Walter’s family will receive friends Monday, October 7, 2019 from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Snyder Funeral Home- Lindsey Chapel with a memorial service following immediately at 6 p.m. Pastor John Temple will speak.
