Denzil Walker
Denzil B. Walker, age 94, Grant City, Missouri died Friday, December 22, 2017 at SSM St. Francis Hospital in Maryville, Missouri.

Denzil was born August 22, 1923, in the Victory neighborhood, near Redding, Iowa. He was the son of the late Blaine and Ruby Irene (Martin) Walker.

Denzil attended Victory Grade School, and the Redding Elementary and High School, where he graduated in 1941. He then attended the Johnson Business College in St. Joseph before entering the United States Army.

Denzil served in the 10th Mountain Division in Europe, seeing combat in Italy. He received both the Purple Heart and a Bronze Star during his enlistment. He was discharged in 1946.

Denzil was united in marriage to Virginia Mae (Lantz) on February 17, 1949. To this union six children were born.

Denzil farmed with his father after returning home from overseas serving his country. After 11 years of
farming, he and Virginia purchased the 169 Night Club which they owned and operated until 1974.

brush crew foreman in Worth County.

He was a member of the Worth County Memorial VFW Post 3123. Denzil had lived in his home until failing health saw him move to the Worth County Convalescent Center in 2012. Some of Denzil’s happiest days were spent on the red bench in front of Dennis’s Grant City Auto Parts Store visiting with all those passing by and watching all sports his grandchildren participated in.

He was preceded in death by his wife Virginia (2001), infant daughter Paula Irene, granddaughter Whitney Walker, sister Wilma Mazur, two brothers Thomas Keith and Kensil Walker, and his son-in-law Tim Novak.

His survivors include: Kyle (Carol) Walker, Lebanon, Missouri, Jennifer (Mark) Terry, Grant City, Janice (Steve) Caldwell, Eldridge, Missouri, Ronnie (Brenda) Walker, Conception Junction, Missouri, Connie Novak, Grant City, 11 beautiful grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren that he adored.

Burial will be in the Athelstan Cemetery, Athelstan, Iowa. Graveside Military services will be under the direction of Worth County Memorial VFW Post #3123.
