Our deepest sympathy to all the Walpole family. My father, Jack Beard was a long-time friend of Mr. Walpole. In their later years it was a daily habit for them to meet at Bank of Ruston for coffee & catch up with each other. With J.N.'s passing Ruston has lost another great man. Prayers & Blessings...

What a servant of God....he always made sure the teenagers had decent tires when they took off for college. I have no doubt when he reached the Golden Gates God embraced Mr. Walpole and said..."Well done my good and faithful servant!"
