John Walton Wren, Jr.

June 3, 1929 — December 25, 2020

John Walton Wren Jr, 91, entered into rest on Friday, December 25, 2020.
A native of Augusta, he was born to the late John Walton Wren, Sr. and Mary Parish Wren.

He proudly served his country in the United States Marine Corps for 24 years, including two tours of duty in Vietnam. Walton was also a member of the Richmond Reelers square dancers.
