Kenneth Boyd DuVall
February 7, 1931 – August 19, 2018
Kenneth Boyd DuVall was born on February 7, 1931 in Russellville Arkansas to the late Walter and Cordelia DuVall. He met his wife of 62 years, Ina Jane Story, in Bixby Oklahoma where she was a bank teller. They married in December 1949 and during Kenneth’s enlistment in the US Navy, spent several years living in San Diego California. After his discharge, they decided to make their way back home to Arkansas and spent the night in Dallas. Waking up the next morning they found the weather to remind them of San Diego, so they decided to stick around and see what Dallas had to offer. They never made it back to Arkansas and spent the rest of their years living in the Dallas area. Their first home was in Farmers Branch, followed by a move north to Carrollton. In 1965 their daughter Teresa Jane was born. Kenneth worked as a truck driver for Central Freight Lines from 1954 until 1982. He received numerous safe driving awards and accumulated 25 years of accident free driving. Retiring from truck driving, he then started his own charter bus company, Dalworth Charter & Tours. He enjoyed many more years of travel, taking groups on tours across the United States and Canada. Kenneth was an excellent bowler and also loved gospel and country music, especially his favorites Bob Wills and Hank Williams. In addition to his parents, Kenneth was preceded in death by his wife Ina (2011); brothers Floyd, Lloyd, R.B., J.R., Earl and Charles Lee DuVall; sisters NoraLee Hibbs, CoraRee Bartenbach, Juanita Ferguson and Bettie Lou Clifton. He is survived by his daughter Teresa and her husband Don Walker; sister Margaret Euleta and her husband Norris Doddridge, and many beloved nieces and nephews. The family would like to express their sincere appreciation to the Brookdale Farmers Branch staff and community who took such wonderful care of Kenneth for many years. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Webb Chapel United Methodist Church in

My grandmother raised me, so I got to know my uncle Kenneth through his many visits to see his mom. He was always a kind and loving towards me and he took care of his mother. Kenneth bought the house for my grandmother that we live in. He even hired me to paint it once.
I always looked forward to there visits around Christmas when I was younger because they never forgot to bring me something nice.
Gods speed to you uncle Kenneth.

Teresa, Mary Banks and I were saddened to hear of your father's passing. Reviewing his Obituary, he was a great man and a good husband and father, and enjoyed sharing joy in life with his family, other relatives and friends. His tours upon his retirement from Central Freight Lines demonstrated his enterprising spirit. You were very blessed to have parents like you had. Our prayers and thoughts are with you in this time of bereavement.
