Lewis “Mark” Walters, 82, of Duchesne, long-time resident of Utah County, passed away peacefully on Thursday, December 30, 2021 at his home.   Mark was born December 4, 1939 in American Fork to Thomas Floyd and Vera Lewis Walters.  He met and married Margee Palmer in 1958 and together had three children.  They were later divorced.  He began a relationship with Barbara Lee in 1988 and they were never apart until the day he died.  

Mark grew up in American Fork and attended schools there.  He worked in the orchards in the summer and delivered groceries in the winter to help support the family.   Mark was an avid wood-worker who made beautiful pieces and helped design and remodel the homes of family and friends.  No job was too big and many were the recipients of his hard work and knowledge.  Mark worked at several jobs during his life including the Local 27 Ironworkers and Hecket for several years.   After some formal training, Mark began a 33 year career at Hill Air Force Base which allowed him to travel the country and far off places.  Mark and Barbara cherished the time spent with close friends in their winter home in Salome, Arizona and enjoyed summers with family in the Red Creek Campground.
