 On May 1, 2011, Lee R. Fakes, Greatest Generation veteran and one of Walton'​s most beloved and valuable citizens, became eighty-seven years old. It's a cliché to write "​eighty-seven years young,"​ but that choice of words would describe Lee perfectly. He's a guy who is always willing to do his part and more for anybody or anything that needs an able and helpful hand. In short, our modest and unassuming Mr. Fakes is one of our townss most precious assets. We are blessed to know him and to live on this planet at the same time as he does. On May 1, 2011, Lee R.
