He was born Nov. 3, 1944, in Little Rock, Ark., to Marion Thomas Walls and Wade Ilene Ross Walls.
Marion loved the out-of-doors, especially hunting and fishing. Camping was done as part of the outdoor experience as well. He particularly enjoyed reading books of all kinds. One of his favorite pastimes was guns; studying the history of them, collecting them, shooting them and re-loading ammunition. He could tell you what the make and model of any gun was just by seeing it. He was an avid Sun Devils fan, Cardinals fan, Suns fan and Diamondbacks fan.
Survivors include his sister, Lynda (Michael) Sonin of Holbrook; a brother, Tom Walls of Phoenix; and many cousins and friends.
