Terry Waters

Retired Malibu architect Terry Waters died Oct. 6. He was 83.

Waters was a weather forecaster for the Army Air Corps during World War II. He drew one of the weather maps for the D-Day invasion on June 6, 1944. While stationed in England during the war, Waters met Beatrice, a Red Cross worker who organized dances and other social events for the enlisted men. The two were married in England in 1944.

In the 1960s, Waters led a group of Malibu residents who fought a plan by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power to build what would have been the largest nuclear power generating plant in the world on 305 acres of land located at the mouth of Corral Canyon.

The Malibu Times is the first newspaper in Malibu, serving the community since 1946.
