Jerry Walton Friedel Sr. “Walt”, 87, left this earth on February 16, 2022 to join his first born son, “Walty” and Grandma, in Heaven. He was born January 8,1935 twelve hours after “Elvis”.

Walt will be remembered as one who always had a camera in his hand…and one who had a joke for every occasion, NEVER forgetting the punch line.

He loved cars; especially Corvettes, music, Texas Hold ’em, horses, playing pool, bowling and The Dallas Cowboys.

Major careers in his life were working for his Dad’s family business, “Friedel Towel Supply” and owning several Pizza Inns. Including being the 2nd Pizza Inn Franchisee, ever.

He is survived by his two sisters and brother, six children, eight grandchildren and one great grandson. He had too many wives to mention.

He was very proud of his Choctaw heritage.

Walt did . . .

What he wanted,

When he wanted,

How he wanted

All the time, and

He had fun!

He lived a full life and did it “His Way.”
