Harry was born July 3, 1935 in Marlow to Lewis (Jack) and Grace Truman Wall. He graduated from Chickasha High School in Chickasha OK, in 1954. He married Peggy Lou Winn, in July of 1956. Together they had three children, Susan, Kenny and Jackie. Harry later married Minnie Lee Wright in August of 1988.
Harry was a long time resident of Duncan. He owned and operated Wall and Son Texaco and U-Haul for over 50 years before his retirement in 2009. It is still to be determined how much work really took place at the station but there was sure a lot of storytelling and coffee drank over the years.
Harry loved to fish, go to rodeos and cook dinners for his family and church. He will forever be remembered for his feasts that could feed the town of Duncan. Harry enjoyed going to Ft Worth Rodeo to watch the calf roping slack performance each January with his sons and many friends who would meet for the day. He always kept them entertained on the trip with his stories.
He was a member of the Walters Round Up Club for 10 years and a member of the Duncan Round Up Club for 20 years. Harry and Minnie were founding members of the Chisholm Trail Cowboy Church and he attended services regularly as his health allowed.
He is survived by his wife, Minnie, of the home, his son Jackie Don and daughter-in-law Paula Wall of Duncan, Sister Ethel Rogers of Comanche. Grandchildren Jeremiah and Keely Jackson, Karri and Josh Cappel, Rachel and Ryan Hightower, Hanna Wall, Jaci Vinson, and Rowdy Vinson, Great-grandchildren Kenna Miller, Cassidy Jackson, Ky Miller, Jace Jackson, Halle Hightower, Cabre Cappel and Ruger Vinson.
His parents preceded him in death, along with his daughter Susan, his son Kenny and his brother Lawrence.
Pallbearers will be Jeremiah Jackson, Rowdy Vinson, Josh Cappel, Ryan Hightower, Ky Miller and Scott Williams.
