Dearld M Walte, 58 of Des Moines passed away at home due to COPD on Thursday, July 1, 2021. Family and friends will gather to celebrate his life from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday, July 11th at the Norwood Inn 4592 NE 29th St, Des Moines, IA 50317.

Dearld was born in Keokuk, Iowa on June 10th, 1963. He grew up in Des Moines and he worked for Local 177 Laborers and retired in 2018.

Dearld loved camping at Cuttys, grilling, fishing, boating, and he was a big Pittsburgh Steelers, Cyclones, and Hawkeye fan. He enjoyed his music, watching Nascar, and spending time with his family and friends showing everyone his one and only dance move. He was quite the storyteller so you always walked away with a smile or a laugh. Anyone that knew Dearld knew his dog Zoey was his best friend.

Survivors include his two sons, Wesly (Deanna) and Derek (Brittany) Walte; three grandsons Tristan and Ethan Walte, and Garrett King; granddaughter Nova Walte; Siblings Kenneth Walte, Tambra (Karl) Webb, Pooh (Rick) Carr, and Kennette Brady; and girlfriend Jill Beattie. Dearld was preceded in death by his mother Sharon S Brady, father Elwin J Walte , brother Eddie Walte and nephews Scotty A. Belcher and Aaron K Bjork

Memorial contributions can be directed to the family in loving memory of Dearld.
