Hayden Earl Walton
January 9, 1959 ~ June 4, 2006

Hayden was born in Fort Smith, Arkansas to Richard and Janice Walton.

Hayden's one brother, Richard Ray, was 15 when Hayden was born.

When Hayden was two years old, the family moved to Del City, OK, where they resided until 1962 when Hayden's father passed away. Janice then moved with Hayden to Choctaw, OK, where they lived for many years.

Hayden met Kelly Choate at the skating rink in Midwest City in 1973, and they were married September 2, 1988 in Fort Smith, Arkansas. They eventually had two daughters. Shawna Lynn Walton was born January 20, 198 and Hayley Nicole Walton was born June 27, 1985. Hayden and Kelly divorced in 1991 and she now lives in Missouri with her children and grandchildren.

Her daughter Shawna Clark and her late husband Dane had his five beautiful grandchildren, Dillon, Dana, Gabriel, Laina, and Hannah Clark. Hayley is now attending college in Missouri and pursuing a nursing degree.

Hayden and Becky Dobbs had one son, Hayden William Walton, born January 21, 1994. He now lives with his mother, sister, and grandmother in Stratford, OK. Becky's daughter Chelsea adored Hayden. She gave him the nickname "Hay Day" and it stuck with him the rest of his life.

One of Hayden's greatest pleasures was fishing, especially when he had his son with him. They spent many hours together on the banks of ponds, rivers and lakes doing one of the things they both loved the most.

Hayden thought the world of his children. He called Shawna his "Big Kid" or "Nawnee." He called Hayley "Willy Billy" from the time he was born.

Shawna and Hayley remember summer vacations spent with their Dad at Lake Eufala, Lake Texhoma and Lake Tenkiller. They camped, fished, went tubing and boating with him, and consider these times some of the most special of their lives.
