Dr. Stanley WaltersThe Tyndale University community was saddened to learn that Dr. Stanley David Walters, Professor Emeritus of Religious Studies and revered scholar, educator and pastor, passed away on March 5, at the age of 92. He leaves behind a legacy of profound intellectual contributions and unwavering devotion to his faith.

Dr. Walters taught at Tyndale University from 2004 until 2011. He was honoured for his significant contributions with the title, Professor Emeritus of Religious Studies. Prior to his time at Tyndale, Dr. Walters taught at Greenville College before moving on to Central Michigan University, where he established the Department of Religion. He later served as a professor of Old Testament at Knox College, University of Toronto, for sixteen years.

“I took a course at Knox College with Dr. Walters and thoroughly enjoyed it,” says former Tyndale Academic Dean of Undergraduate Studies and current Associate Professor of Christian Ministries, Dr. Daniel Scott. “When he retired, there was an opening for an undergraduate professor to teach the Hebrew Scriptures at Tyndale. As the Academic Dean at the time, it was my great honour to invite him to join our faculty. He was anxious teaching undergraduate students, but they loved him. As did I. His keen intellect, sparkling eyes and profound love for the Christ of the scriptures will be missed.”

A celebration of Dr. Walter's life will be held at First Presbyterian Church in Upper Sandusky, Ohio, on Sunday, March 10, 2024, at 1:00 pm. His legacy will forever live on in the hearts and minds of those who were fortunate enough to know him.
