He a deacon in many of the churches they belonged to over his long life. Dr. Wall was a very accomplished man by all standards, but was always very quick to say none of this would have ever been possible if it were not for the grace of God. It was his absolute manifest that he owed all of his life and victories to both his wife, and most of all, to God. Poppa, as he was called by all of his family for the last 32 years, has left a great void as the patriarch of the Wall family, but will easily be filled with the love of Jesus. We will miss him. The celebration of Dr. Wall's life will be held at Crothers-Glenwood Funeral Home in Tallulah, LA on Sat., April 12th. Visitation will be at 1:00 pm Central with the ceremony starting at 2:00 pm.
