Gary Michael Walter, 58, of Ankeny passed away on June 21, 2023, due to complications proceeding open heart surgery in Des Moines. Gary was born on October 6, 1964, in Oshkosh, WI to Harry and Ruth Walter. He was comfortable and surrounded by loved ones at the time of passing.

The visitation will be held at Memorial Services of Iowa (4208 N. Ankeny Blvd.) on Monday, June 26, 2023, from 5:00-7:00 PM. After the visitation, there will be a celebration of life at Benchwarmer’s in Ankeny.

When Gary entered the room, his presence was known. He was full of so much life. Bigger than that, he had the heart of gold. He loved his wife, family, and grandkids more than anything. Gary loved all things sports and took any opportunity he could to watch a game. Gary devoted 28 years to Atlantic Bottling, which shows his commitment and loyalty to anything he did.

Taken too soon and missed by so many. Only the good die young.

He is survived by his wife, Cheryl Walter; his children and families, Cale and Sierra Walter, Gretchen Walter and Taylor Rae, Chelsea and Ryan Antolik, Jordan Stupka, and Brandon and Ashley Jacobs; his loving grandchildren, Andrea, Emet, Owen, Amelia, Beau and Paxton.

Condolences and flowers may be offered at Memorial Services of Iowa — 4208 N. Ankeny Blvd, Ankeny, IA.
