WALTERS, Trueman…

It's with great sadness we announce the passing of a wonderful Father, Grandfather, Great-Grandfather and even Great-Great-Grandfather. E. Trueman Walters, in his 92nd year, passed away on Sunday, July 18th, 2021. Beloved husband to the late Audrie (2005). He was an incredible father to Verne (Jane), Darcy (Sue), Debbie (Ron), and Pam (Kirk). Also, the fun-loving Grandfather to Michelle (Rob), Jason (Siosiana), Casey (Ben), Kelly (Dan), Brad, Brent, Kyle (Tiffany), Mallory (Sam), and Great-Grandfather to Taylor, Morgan, Connor, Dylan, Katherine, Gavin, Chloe, Aaron, Tripp, Beau, Myles and Violet and Great-Great-Grandfather to Hayze.

Trueman touched so many people's lives during his 65 years in the theatre business. He started his career at the age of 13 as an usher at the Patricia Theatre in London, where he met his future wife, Audrie. From there, Trueman managed the Seneca Theatre in Niagara Falls, the Regent Theatre in Oshawa, the Grand Theatre in Kingston and the Mustang Drive-In in Kingston. In 1972, it was full circle back to London to the Mustang Drive-In theatre. After 41 years at the Mustang Drive-In, at the age of 83, it was time to retire. Trueman was blessed with a wonderful family and Drive-In family. Oh, the stories he could tell and the laughter that was shared. For Trueman this was not a job, it was his life, we believe that's what kept him so young at heart.

As the curtain closes for Trueman, the "show must go on", and he will meet Audrie, "Somewhere in Time." And as many of us heard that closing message "Thank you for calling".

We are so grateful for the staff at Strathmere Lodge, Strathroy for their compassionate care for Trueman during his time there, and for taking such great care of his family during his final days, as well as for welcoming Buddy. Cremation has taken place and a celebration of life will be held at the Mustang Drive in at future date in September, and will be announced. Future interment in Mount Pleasant Cemetery, London. In memory of Trueman, donations may be made to the Humane Society of London & Middlesex, 624 Clarke Road, London, ON N5V 3K5. Arrangements entrusted with A. Millard George Funeral Home, 519-433-5184.
