Obituary for Walter E. Jackson, Jr.

Walter “Bud” Jackson of Johns Island, SC passed away peacefully in the presence of family on December 4, 2017.

Bud was born on February 14, 1949 in Peekskill, NY, son of the late Marie Ferdon Jackson and the late Walter Edgar Jackson, Sr. He resided for most his life in Hopewell Junction, NY before settling in Charleston, SC in 2013.

He is survived by his wife, Nancy Cacchio of Johns Island, SC; daughter, Lisa Jackson Roina, and her husband, Ralph, of Johns Island, SC; son, Matthew Jackson, and his wife, Katherine of Charleston, SC; and his grandchildren: Ethan, Colin, Stella, and Benjamin.

Bud enjoyed life’s simple pleasures. He loved fishing, vacations with family, listening to Eddie Arnold and Roy Orbison, laughing at old Chevy Chase movies, and spoiling his chihuahua Chuck. He found greatest joy in spending time with his grandchildren.

A Marine veteran of the Vietnam War, retiree of Metro North Railroad, and consultant with Garg Consulting, Bud held lifelong friendships from those and all areas of his life. Anyone who knew Bud would speak to his incredible generosity, loyalty, work ethic, and love for family and country.

The family will receive friends on Friday, December 8, 2017, from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM at McAlister-Smith Funeral Home West Ashley Chapel.

A funeral service will be held at 11:00 AM on Saturday, December 9, 2017, at McAlister-Smith Funeral Home West Ashley Chapel.

Bud will be buried at the side of his first wife Patricia Ann Jackson in Hillside Cemetery of Cortland Manor, NY.
