BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Visitation for Biloxi Councilman Tom Wall was Thursday evening at the Bradford O'Keefe Funeral Home in Biloxi.

Friends, family members, city leaders and Biloxi residents stood in lines stretched out the door ready to pay their respects to Tom Wall and his family. Wall served as a Biloxi councilman from 1993 until his life ended after a battle with cancer on Monday, January 7.

Pictures of Wall, through the years, sat at the entrance of the chapel. The Cadillac he restored was parked on lawn.

He died one day short of his 74th birthday. He and his wife Arlene Wall were married 54 years. They had two sons.

A second visitation will be held Friday at 1 p.m. until 2 p.m. before the funeral service at the Biloxi National Cemetery.
