Douglas Johnny Wall was born on March 19, 1929, to Max and Mary (Kloth) Wall in Spicewood, Texas. He went to his Heavenly Father on Dec. 16, 2012, at the age of 83.
Johnny attended the Spicewood School and served in the U.S. Army, making the rank of corporal during the Korean War.
In 1951, he and his wife, Doris, moved to Burnet. He worked at Kroegers Feed and Implement Co. for many years. During this time, he bailed hay all across Burnet County. He later went to work for the Texas Highway Department and retired after 25 years of service.
He was a member of First Baptist Church in Burnet and regularly attended, as long as his health permitted. He served as a director of the Oatmeal Festival and enjoyed barbecuing for it. He spent many hours working on the Community Center, located on the Oatmeal School grounds.
Hunting, ranching and gardening were his most interesting hobbies. In recent years, he enjoyed Arm Chair Stadium if the Texas Longhorns or Dallas Cowboys were playing. He also enjoyed watching old Western movies, even though he may have seen them many times before.
He was preceded in death by his parents; sisters Maxine Alman and Alice Cofer; and brother Stillman Wall.
He is survived by his wife of 62 years, Doris; daughter Mary Kay Fleming and husband Joe; grandsons Shane Warden and Joshua Townsend; and great-grandchildren Jerrick, Calli and Tommy Joe Warden. He is also survived by his sister-in-law Lillian Wall and brother-in-law Bill Alman.
