Charles A. Walls (aged 87) of Castle Rock, CO, went to be with the Lord on January 21, 2017, with his beloved wife Jacquelyn by his side. He was born on November 6, 1929 in Ware, (Dallam County) TX. After graduating high school, he entered the military and soon married his high school sweetheart. They were married 67 years until his death. Charles proudly served his country for more than 26 years in the United States Navy and Army, retiring as Chief Warrant Officer 4. In retirement, he went on to obtain a Bachelor’s degree from University of Texas at El Paso, and then taught elementary school for a time. Later in life, he and his son, Charles, partnered and purchased an oil lease in Oklahoma that they worked together pumping oil for several years. His passions in life, other than his wife and family, were playing golf, playing poker with his buddies, bowling, seeing little children laugh and play and of course sharing his love for the Lord. Charlie was immediately liked by all he met. He had a friendly nature and was a great story teller. He loved sharing stories about his military career working with the Missile Program.

Walls (deceased), 4 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren. Himself, one of 8 children, is survived by sisters Mary Shine & Vernell Grantham, Ft Worth, TX.
