Jerry K. Walton reunited with his sweetheart Sept. 22, 2020, peacefully in the comfort of his home surrounded by children and grandchildren. Jerry was born Feb. 10, 1934, in Heber City, Utah, to Ina and Carl Walton. Jerry married the love of his life Oct. 23, 1964, and had three beautiful children.
Jerry loved people. He would go to Virg’s on a regular basis and have coffee to share funny stories, memories, and laughs. There was not a soul on this planet, and certainly not in this county, whom he did not know and love.
Jerry loved trips to Wendover with his daughter Anna and grandson Ty. They enjoyed listening to music, and playing slots and blackjack with Ty. Jerry loved the outdoors and fishing and hunting trips with his son Larry, and grandson Colby. Jerry loved being with his family. We have so many beautiful lifelong memories we will treasure for all time.
Jerry was preceded in death by his wife Beth Ann Walton, mother Ina Lewis, father Carl Walton, stepfather Mervin Lewis, brothers Larry J. Walton and Stanley Walton, and sister Coleen Walton.
Jerry is survived by his children Larry K. Walton, Theresa A. Brinkerhoff, and Anna L. Blackburn; grandchildren Colby Walton, Sherri Cole, Brandon Brinkerhoff, Tyson Brinkerhoff, Tyler Castagno, and Nicholas Castagno; great-grandchildren Everlee Beth Walton, Lilly, Carla, and Brent Cole, and Greyson and Eisley Castagno.
