20 years ago, Davenport Family Funeral Homes had the privilege of assisting the family of Walter “Sweetness” Payton to honor his life. During his 13 seasons as a running back with the Chicago Bears, he set multiple NFL records and was instrumental in bringing home a Super Bowl Championship. He was known to many as a selfless team leader.
Above all else, Walter was a devoted Husband, Father, Son and Friend. Always inspiring people to never give up and work hard for their dreams, he was loved by all who were lucky enough to have him in their lives.
“In the midst of your sorrow, there will always be the memories of ‘Sweetness’.”

“If you ask me how I want to be remembered, it is as a winner… A winner is somebody who gave his best effort, who has tried the hardest they possibly can… who has utilized every ounce of energy and strength within them to accomplish something. It doesn’t mean that they accomplished it or failed, it means they’ve given it their best. That’s a winner.” – Walter Payton
