It is with great sadness we share with the world that we lost a great hero, Sidney Walton, WWII Veteran, at age 102.
For the last three years Sidney was on a mission to tour around the country meeting all 50 governors and raising awareness for our veterans. He had just completed his 40th state, meeting with with Governor Kevin Stitt of the great state of Oklahoma. Sidney inspired tens of thousands of people of all ages throughout his No Regrets Tour. He appeared on hundreds of news shows sharing his mission, participating in the Coin Toss at the 2020 Super Bowl, and even being honored by Fox News with a Patriot Award presented to him by John Rich.

We would like to provide a funeral and memorial fitting of a true American Hero. Anything you can donate to help cover the expenses is much appreciated by the family.
Thank you and God bless you all.
More About Sidney Walton:
Sidney was born Feb. 11th, 1919, in New York City. In March 1941, eager to fight the Nazis, he enlisted in the Army, eight months before Pearl Harbor.
Sidney served in the lesser known third theater of combat, CBI (China-Burma-India) as a corporal and medical technician in the 34th Infantry, 8th Division, until the war's end.
Sidney always regretted missing a chance to meet Civil War veterans during the 1939 World's Fair in New York. To make up for this regret, in 2018 he set off with his son Paul on a "No Regrets Tour" to give Americans a last chance to meet a World War II vet before they're all gone.
Sidney has met the presidents of the U.S. and France, was honored at the 2020 Super Bowl, birthday on the Today Show, featured on World News Tonight, and received the 2020 Unsung Hero Patriot Award.
Thank you everyone again for your time and donations and sharing Sidney's story so he and other veteran's sacrifices are never forgotten.
