Edward J. Mautz, 72, died Sunday, May 6, 2012 at Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines. Funeral services will be held 11:00 am, Thursday, May 10, 2012 at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in Urbandale.

Ed was born December 26, 1939 in Garrison, North Dakota to Reuben and Hilda (Johnson) Mautz.
After graduating from high school, Ed attended North Dakota State College for two years and then joined the Navy, serving as a quartermaster during the Viet Nam conflict. When he returned to the states, he came to Des Moines to study computer programming at the College of Automation.
In June of 1967 Ed was united in marriage to Connie Jeanne Walsh. He worked as a computer programmer and analyst for EFCO, retiring in December 2005, after 39 years of service.

Ed Mautz loved his family more than anything. He enjoyed fishing, pruning his yard, and helping his girls by building garages, decks, or anything else they needed. Another big part of his life was playing cards when all the relatives would get together. His memberships include Gloria Dei Lutheran Church and the Hospitality Team at his church.

Survivors include his wife, Connie; daughters: Andrea Pater of Grimes, Paula (Steve) McBee of Des Moines; five grandchildren: Luke, Johnny, Lauren, Elijah, Mia; sister, Clarice (Clyde) Just of Omaha, NE. Ed was preceded in death by his parents and one sister.

A big thank you to Dr. Lair and his staff for giving Ed's family years of more memories to share.
