Ecclesiastes 3: 1-2a:        To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:  A time to be born…

Mr. David Walton was born on November 19, 1949, in Buena Vista, Georgia to Mr. Tommie Lee and Mrs. Mattie Mae Mathis Walton.  He was educated in Marion County Public Schools.  David had a change in plan and relocated to Jersey City, New Jersey.  Being a man who knew God only had the best for him and he knew it was not good for a man to live alone; therefore he met and married the love of his life, Lorraine Ross.  To this union, four wonderful children were born.

After relocating back to Georgia, he worked at Peach County Board of Education and various other jobs. David was a dedicated hard-working man; he believed in a day’s work for a day’s pay.

 David loved music and dancing; he won several “Dance Contests”.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by three brothers and one sister.
