Cecil Ray Walls, 81, of Evington, died Saturday, February 16, 2019. He was the husband of Reva Walls for 60 years.

Cecil was born on February 8, 1938 in Watauga County, N.C. to the late Henry Clay Walls and the late Ruth Beach Walls.

Cecil was an avid gardener; he could grow anything! He enjoyed sharing the fruits of his labor with those in need. He loved being outdoors and was always found reading in his Bible. He once said that every time he would read the Bible through something new would stand out to him that the Lord would want him to learn. He was a longtime member and usher of Tree of Life Ministries. He was a hard worker and would set out to finish anything he put his mind to. He loved his family dearly and would do anything to make sure his girls were okay.

Along with his wife, he is survived by his daughters Debbie Nack and her husband, Clint, and Renee Alvis and her husband, Allen; a granddaughter, Sonia Alvis; a brother, Richard Walls and his wife, Pat; two sisters Bettye Miller and Helen Hicks and her husband, Jim; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and other relatives. Along with his parents, he was preceded in death by three brothers, Max, Bobby, and Alfred Walls; and a sister, Martha Miller.

The family will receive friends on Wednesday, February 20, 2019 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. at Tharp Funeral Home, Lynchburg.  Service will follow in the Tharp Funeral Home Chapel on Wednesday, February 20, 2019 at 1:30 p.m. at Tree of Life Cemetery. Due to the weather the graveside has been canceled.

In lieu of flowers, please consider making contributions in Cecil’s memory to Tree of Life Ministries, 2812 Greenview Dr. Lynchburg, VA 24502.

Tharp Funeral Home & Crematory, Lynchburg, is assisting the family.
