While the Walton family was always front and center, over the course of 212 episodes there were plenty of other characters who made recurring appearances.

Easy was working for John at the mill after Jason & Ben joined the military. He was careless, backed the truck up into the mill, destroying some of the equipment & breaking Jim Bob's arm.
