Johnny (John Boy) Lee Walton, 58, of Highlands, Texas, lost his battle against chronic Cirrhosis, Wednesday, September 4, 2019. He passed peacefully, surrounded by close family and friends at Woodland Heights Medical Center in Lufkin, Texas.

A Celebration of Life Memorial Service will be held at 3 p.m., Saturday, September 14, 2019.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Billy Paul Walton and Edna Johnson Walton and brothers Billy Buck Walton, Cecil Walton, Steven Walton, and Wesley Walton all of Lufkin, Texas.

He is survived by his daughter Mindy Walton Pettit, son in law Deryl Pettit; God child Desirae Temple, former wife Maryann Temple, and her spouse Nathan Renfro; sisters Kari Walton, Kay Morris, and Kimi Summerlin.

Johnny never met a stranger. He was truly a very caring and compassionate person, and always put the needs of others before his own. A very descriptive and great storyteller, and a true friend to all. If you had a problem, Johnny would find a solution.

He really enjoyed fishing, hunting, and the beauties of nature. His warm personality, wealth of selflessness and friendly smile will be sorely missed by all.
