Pastor Walton was my favorite of all time.! I enjoyed being his secretary and appreciated his counsel in difficult times involving my husband’s epilepsy

We are so grateful for Pastor Walton and the godly impact he has had on so many lives, including ours. It was our pleasure and honor to teach Shari and Gary in Christian school many years ago and then to sit under Pastor Walton’s ministry at Beth Eden Baptist, which has also supported his missions work for a number of years. Our sincere condolences to the family, and we look forward to fellowshipping with Pastor Walton in heaven one day.

When I was just a kid my step-dad had very serious epilepsy and could not even drive. One night God told him He wanted to heal him of his epilepsy. A call was placed to Pastor Walton because Scripture says to call the elders of the church and anoint the person with oil and prayer. Not normally a real Baptist thing, at least back then. Pastor Walton called the deacons together, anointed my step-dad Stan with oil, laid hands on him and they all prayed over him. God did exactly what He said and healed Stan. A year later he was driving and soon after started his own carpet laying business as Stan the Carpet Man. He spent his life on his knees praying for every customer, sharing Jesus and leading people into relationship with Jesus. Stan became the bus director of the church and Kids Church leader every Sunday. Praise God for Pastor Walton's willingness to follow the Bible and teach it faithfully. Stan truly loved Pastor Walton.

During a recent teaching series at our church we were asked, Are you living the legacy you want to leave? My Uncle Dennys life is one of the best examples I know of a life lived wholly dedicated to loving, serving and sharing our Lord Jesus to his family, churches, friends, community and beyond. And I know this will continue through generations. He is a true picture of “Legacy – You Leave What You Live.” My fondest memories are from the mid 1960s through the mid 1970s when the Colorado and Minnesota (and sometimes the Sourh American) cousins) would get together during the summers either in Colorado or the lake in Minnesota. These were some of the best days of my life You will be missed but I'm so happy you are with our Lord and Aunt Kay in eternal joy. Doug and Caralee Walton

Pastor Walton was my Pastor from 5th grade through 11th grade and was a significant influence on me spiritually. I have always considered him "my Pastor" even though so much time has gone by. I have been a pastor for over 40 years now and look forward to the reunion in Heaven!
