Obituary of Walter E Yates
Walter Edward Yates, 63 passed away June 4, 2018 at his home in Deltona, Florida. A Celebration of his life will be held on June 16, 2018 at the Yates home.
Eddie was born in Homestead, Florida on December 18, 1954, to Walter and Marilyn Yates. He is survived by his parents, wife Donna, his daughter Michelle, son Joseph, and grandson Brayden, brother James, his spouse Rose, sisters Carol and Debra and her spouse Anthony, his beloved nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins.
Eddie developed many career skills during his life that included auto body and paint work, concrete construction, aluminum screen work and house painting.
Being a native Floridian afforded Eddie the opportunity to enjoy the passions of fishing, lobstering and any activity that put him on the water. He passed this passion on to his children and others. With the appearance of a tough exterior, he opened his heart and home to people and animals. He loved to host a good party and made sure all were enjoying themselves. And we all loved his food.
