Walter Sewell

Walter R. Sewell, 83, died Saturday, Jan. 5, 2002. He was a long standing member of Coupeville’s Masonic Lodge, an honorary founder of the Elks Lodge in Kodiak, Alaska, a veteran of World War II, a member of the American Legion and a well liked and respected member of the community. He and his late wife Margaret “Peggy” moved into their home in Coupeville 40 years ago. Walt worked in civil service for many years while Peggy ran an antique shop, first in a building on Coupeville’s waterfront and later out of the house next door to their home. Peggy was known for long walks she took around town visiting other antique shops, yard sales and the beach. She was an avid collector of things from her many trips to exotic places. Walt and Peggy were married for 49 years. Walt is survived by one brother and many nieces and nephews and their families. Walt will be sorely missed by all who knew him. There will be a service in Walt and Peggy’s memory at the Masonic Lodge on Main Street in Coupeville, Jan. 26 at 2 p.m. Everyone is welcome; please call 679-2355.
