Jacob Walton Obituary, Death – Jacob R. Walton passed away on the 12th of April, 2023, when he was at home with his family. Jake entered this world on March 16, 1978, in the county of Warren. He was born there. He was educated at Columbus Elementary School and Corry Area High School, all of which are located in the city of Corry, where he also lived. He drove tow trucks and commercial trucks during his career as a driver, which spanned a significant amount of time. Jake, the family historian, was someone who found great joy in conducting genealogical research.
He was an incredible chef who took great pride in preparing delectable meals for the people he held dearest, including his family and friends. Because of his kind and sympathetic character, he was always willing to lend a helping hand to a friend who was in need of assistance, even if it meant taking in a stray cat. Both of his maternal grandparents, Manley and Shirley Moore, as well as both of his paternal grandparents, Milo and Margaret Walton, went away before he was born.
He is survived by his children, Kamrynn Walton, Xzavier Cressley, and Allison Cressley; his parents, Herbert Walton (Corry) and Sherrie and Jan Oviatt (Bear Lake); and his siblings, Dawn Walton (Wilmington, N.C.), Jeremy Walton (Broken Bow, Neb.), DeAnna [Daniel] Campisano (Union City), Joseph [Jessica] Walton (Corry), Tim Oviatt (Titusville), Steven Oviatt (Corry) and Kimberley Oviatt (Youngsville); and many nieces and nephews who loved him. In the latter part of this month, there will be a celebration to remember his life and the legacy he has left behind.
