So sorry to hear of Dr. Waltons passing. He was my dentist for all of my childhood and teenage years. He loved his work and loved the Hokies! Rest in sweet peace Dr. Walton.

Had my checkup just last week with the dentistry “business “ that took over Dr Waltons practice. I always ask how he was doing cause he used to pop in on occasion after he retired and heard he was having some serious health issues. He was my dentist for probably over 35 years. His office staff was like a family. He wasn’t just your dentist. He was a your friend. A rare breed and truly a fine man. Prayers for his family and work family. Farewell to one of our areas finest.
