He was preceded in death by his parents, Doyle and Ora Wallen; brother, Jimmy Wallen; sister, Geneva Wallen; and his faithful fur baby companion, Teddy.


Duffer is survived by his loving wife, Robin; sons, Duffer Wallen II and Jason Wallen; daughters, Katheryn Wallen, and Alexis Ball and fiancé, Jacob McPherson; grandchildren, Davis Wallen, Scyler Weimer, Jett Wallen, Rylee Wallen, Liam Wallen and Ava Wallen; several nieces and nephews; and a host of friends.

We are so sorry to hear about the loss of Duffer. He was a neighbor of ours for may years when we lived on East Sevier. My brothers, Frank & Jerry, Duncan were also friends to Duffer. We also remember when he served in the military. We pray the Lord will comfort you during this time.
In Christ's Love,
