John was a good friend while we were at Lanier.  We were in the FFA together.  He was one year behind me in the Class of 1962,  We went to Panama City Beach one AEA in his hot 1957 Chevy.  John was a pleasant person who never said an unkind word about anyone.  It was good to have known him.  I know his family will miss him.  God rest his soul.

     I did not know John Walton until after we graduated from Lanier, but in our association within the same group, I learned of his many attributes such as thoughtfulness, sincerity, and generosity along with an outstanding personality.  He enjoyed life among his many friends.  That black '57 Chevy was his pride....he could outmanuever and outrun anything else on wheels; not many know about this possibly being a necessity, but he enjoyed every minute of the challenge.  I will always remember his smile which had an impish touch.  He loved his family, and although I have not seen him since the 70's, he was always the same John Walton.  He will be missed and never forgotten by those who knew him well. 

     My thoughts and prayers are with his family and dear friends all of whom he loved so much.  Never forget that smile.  God Bless.
