God’s plans are not always our plans. When your angels came for David on April 19, 2021, in Furman, South Carolina, it was much sooner than we planned, but we’ll brave the grief that comes and try to understand. The life of David Armando Walter began on March 24, 1993, in St. Croix, United States Virgin Islands, with the late Katherine Rivera and James Nanton. He was reared into adulthood by his adoptive parents, the late Lunid I. Walter and Keith Walter. When God created David, he created an amazing husband, father, son, brother, nephew, and friend who left a memorable impression on each life that he touched. In high school, he loved running track, earning him the name of “Track Star”. His love for video gaming earned him the title of “Starbowy”. After high school, David left his beloved St. Croix, to begin a new life in mainland USA. Finding his way to Orangeburg, SC, David was a 2017 graduate of Orangeburg Technical College, where he received an Associate degree in General Technology and certification in Welding. After graduation, David was able to use his expertise as Maintenance Technician with Ardmore Residential Management Company.

On December 2, 2018, he married the love of his life, Aisha Lenay Bellinger. This union was blessed with his only child, Elisha Keith Walter. His memories will be forever cherished by a large and loving family, including: the love of his life, his wife, Aisha Lenay Bellinger; his only child, Elisha Keith Walter; father, James Nanton; motherand father-in-law, Jacob and Jan Bellinger; brothers, James (Tante-Brown) Nanton, Richard Nanton, Charles (Ashley) Nanton, and Seymour Walter, Davon (Maria) Walter; sisters, Nathalie (Kenny) Choi, Debbieann (Clifton) Nanton-Smith, Katherine (Pedro) Rivera; brothers- and sister-in-law, Michael (Tina) Bellinger, Jacob Bellinger, Clifton Smith, Pedro Rivera, Kenny Choi, and Tanesha Bellinger; aunts, Sol Rivera, Marilyn Rivera (Aunty Mai), Kima Merrick-Obidoyin, Linda Corcino, Anise Moten, Jozette Matthew, Angela Nanton, and Irone Merrick; uncles, Irving and Dwayne Straun, Jerome, Richard, and Vernon Matthews, and Selwyn Gonzalez; mentors, Leon and Jamie Cook and Wanda Harmon-Smoak; special friend, Trevor Ervin; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends in the mainland and St. Croix.
