Michael L. Walton, age 66 of Fairborn, passed away on Sunday December 19, 2021 at the Soin Medical Center. He was born January 23, 1955 in Cleveland, Ohio, the son of the late Raphael and Louise (Brown) Walton.
Michael was a longtime employee of Meijer stores. Even after he retired from there, he loved to go back at least once a week to visit ones dear to him, co-workers and customers alike.
When Michael was 18 he met the Lord Jesus and following the Lord became the meaning of his human life. He had the heart of a true shepherd and had a kind and caring word for everyone he met. He affected the lives of so many and he will be greatly missed. He was a member of the Church in Fairborn.
In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by two brothers, David and Clifford Walton. Survivors include his wife of 37 years, Diane; two daughters, Jessica (Jose) Solorzano, Olivia Walton; one brother, Chuckie; and two sisters, Geraldine and Joyce; as well as numerous other extended family and friends.
