Leon Walls Obituary

Leon Edward Walls, age 91, of Pittstown, NJ, peacefully passed away surrounded by family, on Monday, February 12th 2024, at the Hunterdon Care Center.  Leon was born in Somerville, NJ on December 23, 1932, to the late Harvey H. and Alice C. Brooks Walls.  His beloved wife, “Wonderful” Georgia Mae Schuyler Walls passed away in 2014 after 62 years of marriage.

Leon was a proud US Marine Corps Veteran, serving in the Korean War from 1951 to 1953.  He was known for donning any one of his many US Marine Corps caps and enjoyed meeting fellow servicemen.  He retired as a Machinist at EGAN Machinery in Somerville, NJ, after many years working the night shift.

He was passionate about cars and motorcycles, but even more about his own Harley Davidson Trike, which he cruised around Hunterdon County at every opportunity.  He rebuilt old cars, tractors and you’d frequently find him spending time in his well-equipped garage, welding, building or tinkering with machine parts. He loved bicycling, motorcycling, driving his showpiece candy apple red 1966 Mustang and later his newer model (also) red Mustang.  With great joy, he and his late brother, Jim, rode poker runs across the country.  He was a member of the Ridge Riders Motorcycle Club and the Pattenburg VFW. 

He is survived by his daughter, Debi Walls of AZ; son, Leon Walls of PA; son, Darryl Walls and his wife, Barbara of NJ; his six grandchildren; Erica Catanzareti, Ryan Catanzareti, Cheryl Stephens, Patrick Catanzareti, Carla Skeuse and Damian Walls and his nine great-grandchildren; Aiden, Tucker, Ross, Olive, Skylar, Hazel, Oscar, Greenly and Lydia.  He is also survived by his loving companion, Dorothy M. Geiler.

He is predeceased by his daughter, Cheryl Patinella, son-in-law Joe Patinella and grand-daughter, Carla Patinella.  He is also predeceased by seven siblings: James, Ralph, Elmer, Neil, Dorris, Dorothy and Teddy. 

Please join his family for a celebration of life on Sunday, February 18th, 2024 from 11:00am – 1:00pm at Beaver Brook Country Club, 25 Country Club Drive, Annandale, New Jersey.  Please share photos and stories, in advance, to LeonWalls.memorial@gmail.com.
