Michael Roy Waltke

August 31, 1955 ~ May 27, 2018 (age 62)

On May 27th 2018, we lost an amazing friend, husband, father and grandfather unexpectedly, to a heart attack. Michael Roy Waltke was born in Beatrice Nebraska on August 31, 1955 to Carl and Kathleen Waltke. He was the first of three children and later joined by his sister, Deborah, and brother, Mitchell. After graduating from Beatrice High School in 1973, Michael started a family and moved to Grantsville, Utah. Michael had four children: Angela Pawlik, Amber Hoggard, Dustin Waltke and Lacey Waltke. Michael's family was very important to him and nothing made him more proud than his grandchildren: Tevyn Spackman, Paige Pawlik, Carson Beckstead, Gage Carrillo, Corbyn Beckstead, Chase Carrillo, Isaac Cabrera and Miguel Cabrera. He was married to his best friend and love of his life, Melody Waltke, for sixteen years. Michael brought a kindness and love to this world that will be sorely missed. He was preceded in death by his father, Carl Waltke and his four legged friend, Skeeter.

A viewing for friends and family will be held on May 30th at Dalton-Hoopes Funeral Home from 4:00 to 6:00 pm, 50 West Main Street, Grantsville, Utah, to be followed by a celebration of life, 7:00 pm,  at Legends, 677 South 200 West, Salt Lake City, Utah.
