WALTON SR., ROY H.  
"I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course and I have kept the faith. II Timothy 4:7 Mr. Roy H. Walton, Sr., a native of Barbados, was reared in New York. He was born to the late Beristein Marshall and Roy Gladston Walton on December 31, 1927. He professed his belief in Christ with baptism at a young age while living in New York. Roy was educated in the New York Public School System and received his GED in the 1950's. Roy enlisted into the United States Army in 1950, where he served our country in Korea, Germany and other European countries. During his service in the military, he worked in upholstery and shoe repair. Roy taught map reading at the Quartermaster School at Fort Lee Army Base in Fort Lee, VA. He had the rank of Sergeant First-Class when he received an Honorable Discharge in October 1972. Shortly after his retirement from the military, Roy worked as a Mail Carrier with the United States Post Office and attended John Tyler Community College. Roy retired from the United States Postal Service in 1986. Roy Walton was a Christian and spiritual man, often times quoting various scriptures from the Bible. He enjoyed reading, talking and spending time with family and friends Roy was married to Charlotte Boone Walton (d. 1990) in 1952 and from this union he became the proud father of four children whom he had much pride, Hope N. Walton, Roy H. Walton, Jr., Lois Diane Walton (d.1968) and Nina Reneé Walton Kent. Roy is also survived by five grandchildren, Carter L. Walton, Carl W. Walton, Lindley D. Walton, William W. Kent III and James M. L. Kent. Also left to mourn his death is a devoted daughter-in-law, Miriam C. Walton and one great-granddaughter, Morgan T. Sampson.

Roy's wisdom and extreme knowledge on various subject matters, especially his quotes from the Holy Bible and his Barbados roots, will live on in memory of his children and grandchildren. His ability for memorization was second to none. Several of his anecdotes will forever remain in their minds: "Every skin teeth ain't a grin" and "Check, double check, and recheck for a paycheck". "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not dismay, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."
