Sidney Walton was on a 50-state, 50-governor No Regrets Tour to raise awareness of the dwindling number of WWII veterans when he passed away Oct. 2, 2021, just a few days after meeting his 40th governor, Kevin Stitt of Oklahoma.
Sidney's son Paul, 66, decided to complete the tour in his father's honor by visiting the remaining 10 states and delivering Sidney's message to each governor. Paul called this final leg the No Regrets Memorial Tour and re-wrapped Sidney's iconic vehicle to include a countdown of the number of states remaining (see photo below).
Paul hoped to complete the tour himself, but his 4 year battle with cancer began taking a toll. With help from his wife, his sister Judy, and friends Dave Topuzes and Kirk Webster (see below), Paul was able to see Sidney's mission completed before he sadly passed away on June 4, 2022.
Here are the 10 states of the Memorial Tour:
