Shortly after their marriage, L.E. joined the Army proudly serving in the Korean War and was also stationed in Thule, Greenland.

During their time there, L.E. served as fire chief of the Sixteen Springs Canyon Fire Department, and as in all places they lived, they ministered, befriended and blessed many lives. In 2001 they moved to La Luz, where they were devout members of the Tularosa Community Church. They spent the next 12 years surrounded and loved by their many friends and close family members as they walked their last mile together. L.E. was preceded in death by his father, Larkin Enoch; his mother, Mary Estell Teague; his sisters, Betty June Willis and Cleo Russell; his wife, Angie Walls, and wife, Shirley Walls.
