James Walton


James H. Walton aka Hank was born on May 2, 1957. He entered into a peaceful rest on July 27, 2022. James was a good brother, uncle and friend who was always there to lend a helping hand to others. He was truly a blessing to have around and always had a smile on his face.

James attended Linden McKinley School. He was employed at Calumet from which he later retired. After retirement, he worked on just “winging it”. He loved swimming and was great at both breaststroke and butterfly styles. He loved skating, playing dominoes, cut-throat spades and tunk, dancing, and was an excellent chess player. He also loved fighting; that’s when they called him “Lil Henry”.

James is preceded in death by parents, Herman Walton and Pearlie Mae Walton; brothers, David Lee, Larry and Charles Walton; nephews, Mark, Lennell “Phar Cat” Walton; great nephews, Tamane McGraw, Terrico Henry, and Keishaun Walton; aunt, Mary Elizabeth Willlingham; uncle, Frank Bilberry Jr.; brothers-in-law, Jessie Kincade and John Lymon, Jimmy Jones.

  1. Landy Jones & Family

    To the Walton family: May the Lord comfort the entire family and friends during this time.

    There is really nothing we need to know or even try to understand.
    If we refuse to be discouraged
    and trust Gods guiding hand.
    So take heart and meet each minute
    with faith in Gods great love,
    Aware that every day of life
    is controlled by God above
    And never dread tomorrow
    or what the future brings,
    Just pray for strength and courage
    and trust God in all things.
    And never grow discouraged
    be patient and just wait
    for God never comes too early
    and He never comes too late!
