Fairfield City Schools mourning unexpected death of teacher
FAIRFIELD, Ohio (WXIX) - Students and staff members at Fairfield City Schools are mourning the unexpected death of teacher Bryan Walters on Nov. 10.
Walters was a chemistry teacher at Fairfield High School.
According to School and Community Relations Director Gina Gentry-Fletcher, he passed away during a planned surgery.
Walters began his teaching career at Fairfield High School in August of 2017.
Principal Bill Rice said prior to becoming a teacher, Walters worked for the Department of Defense.
“His calling was most certainly working with students. In his time working at Fairfield he was a Chemistry teacher, Assistant Academic Team Coach, ACT-SO Coach, and mentor and friend to many colleagues at the High School. Bryan was probably always the smartest person in the room, but never let that be known. He had a way of dissecting programs and planning for solutions that was contagious in his department. And he had a wonderful wit to him with his dry sense of humor,” Rice said.
Classes at Fairfield Senior High School will be canceled for staff and students in grades 10-12 for funeral arrangements.
In lieu of flowers, Bryan’s wife has asked for donations to the Fairfield High School Academic Team, 8800 Holden Blvd., Fairfield, OH 45014.
