Ervin D. Wall
STANFORD - Services for Ervin D. Wall, who operated a country store
in Kings Mountain for many years and was active in Lincoln County politics,
will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday at Fox Funeral Home by Greg Powell. Burial
will be in Buffalo Springs Cemetery.
Wall, who was 74, died Wednesday in Walltown. He was a staunch Democrat
who often helped candidates by taking them around to meet people and stump
for votes. Wall knew many people and was influential in local politics.
``Anytime you were running for office, especially if you were a Democrat,
he was the first person you talked to in the Kings Mountain area,'' said
David Gambrel, Lincoln County's property valuation administrator.
``He epitomized what is the best about politics - a love for people.''
When Gambrel ran for PVA and earlier when he made a bid for the county
clerk's office, it was Wall who took him around to campaign. Candidates
seeking state or Congressional offices also knew of Wall's influence. Former
governors Bert Combs, Louie Nunn, Wendell Ford and Julian Carroll all stopped
by the store at one time or another.
``As much as he loved politics, children were really what made him
click,'' said Gambrel. ``Kids who didn't know him immediately took a liking
Wall loved his own children and grandchildren and made friends of other
kids he encountered. If he was out with a candidate on the campaign trail,
he would take along a bag of candy so he could give treats to the children.
Every year when Kings Mountain United Methodist Church would have Vacation
Bible School, Wall would bring ice cream for the children. He also gave
the church part of his property on which to build a parsonage.
Wall also served as the community's unofficial utility superintendent.
Kings Mountain had a Ruritan Club at one time that formed a Light Association
and put in street lights. After the club became inactive, Wall would go
around and collect money to pay the utility bill.
People who got sick in the middle of the night could count on Wall
to open his store on Ky. 501 at any hour if they needed medicine. Wall
lived across from the store, which closed when he retired eight or nine
T.J. Hill IV of Stanford says people who needed help reading or filling
out important documents also turned to Wall.
``He just loved people and he loved kids. I think a lot of his interest
in politics was that he loved being out and seeing people,'' said Hill,
who sought Wall's help when he ran for sheriff last year.
Born Oct. 31, 1924, in Lincoln County, Wall was a son of the late Charles
E. and Lillie Sims Wall. He was a former owner and operator of Wall's General
Store in Kings Mountain for 36 years and a farmer. He was a World War II
Army veteran and a member and ordained elder at Kings Mountain Christian
Church. He attended Mount Olive Christian Church.
Survivors include his wife, Marcella Dunaway Wall; two daughters, Janet
Perry of Walltown and Bertha Whitaker of Danville; two brothers, Noel K.
Wall of Florence and Earl L. Wall of Kings Mountain; two grandchildren;
and three great-granddaughters. He was preceded in death by a son, Ervin
