Wal-Mart heir dies in plane crash
John Walton, the middle son of Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton and the 11th richest man in the world, has been killed. His death was a result of the crash of his experimental ultralight plane in Wyoming. Whether you despise Wal-Mart or not, this death is tragic. John Walton was an extremely giving man, especially in regards to educational causes. He was a "man's man," constantly building engines, motorcycles, and aircraft. An Army vet with the Green Berets and Silver Star winner, John Walton, 58, leaves behind a wife and son. He will be missed.
