March 27 1949 November 20 2022
David Kenneth Walton, our loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, friend and the patriarch of our family returned home to our Heavenly Father on November 20, 2022 at the age of 73. David was born on March 27, 1949 to Leslie Kenneth Walton and Naida Ruby Harding. He was the first of five children and was raised in Calgary Alberta, Canada. He had a happy childhood participating in choir and theatrical performances and riding his bike around Calgary, especially to the airport to watch the planes takeoff and land. His love of cars started early when the family purchased a second car, a beige and green Hilman Minx. David served as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the California North Mission. After returning, he completed his bachelor’s degree in Business-Finance from BYU. While at BYU David met the love of his life, Mary Polley, and impressed her with his gorgeous hair, charming smile and foreign accent. They were sealed for time and all eternity in the St. George Temple on August 9, 1973. David took his first job after college with Imperial Oil in Edmonton, Alberta. After Lisa and Scott were born, they moved to the Vancouver, British Columbia area where Dan, Amy, Mike and Brian joined the family. David was a dedicated father taking advantage of every opportunity to teach the gospel of Jesus Christ, the value of hard work and the importance of family. He also loved to have fun and instilled in each of his children a love of the outdoors and a sense of adventure. He spent the rest of his professional career working for Atkinson and Terry Insurance where he was a valued employee and beloved manager, known for his integrity, dedication and hard work. David was a true disciple of Jesus Christ and served faithfully in numerous church callings including Bishoprics and Stake Presidencies. He especially loved his time working with the youth, young single adults and serving in the Vancouver Temple. David loved cars, documentaries, riding motorcycles, spreadsheets and cherry pies. He closed many days watching the news with a bowl of popcorn and glass of grape juice. David is survived by his wife of 49 years, Mary; children Lisa (Chris) Johnson, Scott (Elisha), Dan (Sarah), Amy (Chris) Silva, Mike (Carly) and Brian. He is also survived by 23 adoring grandchildren, 4 siblings, and many other family members and friends whom he loved. Funeral services will be held Saturday, November 26, 11:00 am, at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints meeting house at 4200 North Foothill Drive, Provo, Utah. Viewing will immediately precede the memorial service from 9:30 to 10:30 am. Online condolences may be sent to www.serenityfhs.com.
