Jimmy Rex WahlBenton, AR, 1948 - 2019
Jimmy Rex Wahl went to rest in his heavenly home on the morning of December 9th after a long service-related illness. He was preceded in death by his mother Helen and his father Charles. He is survived by his wife, Mary Lou Wahl (nee Doddridge), his children, Kim Mitchell (Dennis), Rhonda Stane (Brent), Marcus Wahl (Destiny), TinaLavon Cyr (Mark), and Tammy Cline (Gene), his grandsons Colby, Devin, Nikolas, Brandon, Michael, and Jonathan, his granddaughters Renee and Sydney, his great-granddaughter Olivia, and his siblings Dee Coyle (Jim), Darlene Todd (Clint), Teddy Wahl (Linda), and Marilyn Garner (Allen).
He was born in Niangua, Missouri and raised in Marshfield, Missouri where he first enjoyed his lifelong love of hunting and fishing. He left Marshfield to join the Navy in which he served with distinction in the Patrol Boat, River unit in Vietnam and was proud of his time after the war on the Essex. He transferred his service to the Seabees in the Navy Reserve from which he retired. He worked as a master plumber, retiring from the Benton Health Center. His wicked sense of humor and fierce loyalty to his friends, deer camp buddies, and family enriched the lives of all who were fortunate to share time with him. He will be remembered for pranks, wisdom, reliability, and long, slow stories to which we would hang on for hours.
