Carl Rex Walls, 86, died Friday, Oct. 27, 2017, at The Life Care Center of Morgan County following a long battle with health issues.
He leaves his wife of 58 years, Eloise; his sons, Ross and Brian; five grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his daughter, Janet. Rex is also survived by brothers, Clayton Walls, Howard "Hooney" Walls, Joe Walls and Steve Walls; as well as sisters, Thelma McMahan and Katherine Kittrell.
Rex's greatest joy in life was his enthusiasm for antique cars. Rex was the founding member of the Walden Ridge Antique Car Club and he remained active until his illness. One of Rex's cars was bought by Wayne Newton while another was used in a movie about Hank Williams Jr., in which Rex was an extra in two scenes. Rex was also a 32nd degree Mason and a member of South Harriman Baptist Church. Rex will be missed by his family and friends.
The family received friends from 5-7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 28, at Kyker Funeral Home, Harriman. Funeral services immediately followed with Matt Edwards officiating. Burial will be in Roane Memorial Gardens 10 a.m. Monday, Oct. 30.
