Obituary for Christopher James Walls

On February 1, 1972 in Dallas, Texas, James and Tanna (Robertson) Walls and sisters, Shelia (Walls) Price and Tammy Walls, celebrated the birth of their son and brother, Christopher James Walls. Chris started off life with a guardian angel, his older brother James Phillip Walls, Jr. Then about fifteen years later, Chris gained a little brother, Dustin Edward Walls.

Throughout Chris’ childhood, he has lived between Biloxi, Mississippi Dallas, Texas, and Ponca City, Oklahoma. When the family settled in Ponca City, Chris attended Ponca City public schools and found the best friends a man could ask for; Marshall Jones, Clay Pemberton, Derik Pappan, Sean Suggs, Shane Suggs, and Jim Gorre. If you know any of these boys, you know that they were out causing havoc in Ponca City. Later Chris decided to try his hand at construction and attended Pioneer Vo-Tech in Ponca City. During this time, he got the opportunity to build a house with his class. Thank goodness, he took those classes, because he was a dang good handyman to have around the house.

On September 18, 1993, he would meet the love of his life and soul mate, Sherry (Cooper) Lawe. For their first date, he showed off his cooking skills and made her dinner. Within a month Chris decided to become a family man and move in with Sherry. Chris not only gained a great woman but he gained a beautiful baby boy, Christopher James Lawe. Then on July 4, 1995, they welcomed their second son, Kyle James Samuel Walls. Finally, on April 16, 1999, almost 5 years later, he popped the question, and asked Sherry to marry him. Chris and Sherry tied the knot and made it official on March 18, 2000. We all know that Chris wasn’t the traditionalist and they had children before marriage, but doing things different was always Chris’ thing. A little over a year later on October 3, 2001, they welcomed their third son, Justin James Walls. Chris absolutely loved teaching his boys about camping, fishing, hunting, and playing sports. But the most valuable lesson he taught his boys was how to be a man, husband and father. THEN SURPRISE!!! On April 28, 2010, his baby girl, Diamond Nycole Walls, was born. Even though he loved teaching his baby girl how to camp and fish, Chris also got to learn about Barbie’s, baby dolls, tea parties, princesses, Girls Scouts, and tumbling. There was no greater joy in Chris’ life, then to see his children grow and doing the things they loved.

You won’t meet too many men that had to get their daily dose of soap opera, but Chris was one of these men. He would do whatever it took to make sure he got to see Days of Our Lives. But most of all Chris was an avid Cowboys fan, who didn’t miss a Dallas Cowboys game, unless he had no other choice. Thank the good lord above that DVR was invented. Now no matter what he was always able to see his Cowboys play. He dreamed of attending a Cowboys game, one day, but now Chris will get to see all their games with the best seat in the house.

So many things in Chris’ life seemed of little significance, at the time they happened but then as time passed they took on a great importance, as friends and family grew older. The memories he took with him are now so precious and have more value than all the gold and silver in the world.
He didn’t have any buildings names after him; no monuments erected in his honor, but he was a man of honor. He would give you the shirt of his back, the shoes off his feet, and the money in his wallet, if you needed them. Chris treasured his family and friends more than any amount of money in the world.
Tragedy stuck on June 18, 2017 when Chris’ pain was too much to bare and he was called home to heaven.

On November 26, 2000, Chris lost his momma, to a massive heart attack. Then on October 24, 2016, tragedy struck again, when his son, PFC Kyle James Samuel Walls, was called to heaven. Throughout the years he has lost many loved ones, including his nephew, Jesse Lee Carlile, as well as multiple grandparents.
Take a moment to watch the sunrise or look at the sunset, smell the flowers, or watch the flittering and fluttering of butterflies, as this is where you will find Chris. Know he is here in one form or another, watching over all of us.

For all those that got to meet Chris…. Please don’t cry because he is gone, instead be happy that God gave us 45 amazing years with him. Today take comfort in knowing that Chris is no longer in pain. He is happy and dancing in the clouds, probably Naked!!
