Walt Schofield, 82 of Kaysville, passed away peacefully on Father’s Day just three days shy of his 83rd birthday with his wife Kathy by his side.
He was born on June 22, 1939 in Boise, Idaho to William Lester and Alta Ruby Harvey Schofield.
Walt graduated from Davis High School where he participated and excelled in many different sports.
Walt married Kathleen Nelson on December 12, 1973; this union combined two families. Together they raised six children, Douglas, Brian, Karri Ann, Lance, Thomas and Sarah. They would have celebrated their 49th wedding anniversary in December.
Walt was a brick mason starting from a young age, although he tried other odd jobs from selling boats, paving parking lots, to cutting, hauling, and selling firewood but he always returned to brick laying. He loved spending time in the great outdoors camping, fishing, hunting, and setting around the campfire at Pineview. He also enjoyed gold mining.
Walt had a way with people and made many friends near and far and his friendships were long lasting.
