He is survvived by two brothers, a sister, and his mother Helen.

Our condolences go out to the Walton Family for this tragic loss.

He also leaves behind a wife and son. Sources also report that the man was a war hero in Vietnam. A medic in the Green Beret's who won a silver star for saving the lives of fellow soldiers while under enemy fire.
