KEITH WALTERS, 43, passed away Thursday, Jan. 11, 2018. He kissed the same woman he swept off her feet at Leo High School (class of 1993), his wife, Amy Walters, one final time before taking his final breath on Earth. Family surrounded Keith to the very end of his valiant fight for 73 days cheering him on to come back to the life he was undeniably amazing at living so well. The love Keith exuded to all he encountered was irrefutable. Son, McCartney Walters, age 10, surely has been blessed with a remarkable illustration of a father who exemplified a heart of a servant. Keith Walters was co-owner of the Pier Place, of Angola, Ind., established in 2004. This successful business combined his love of the water with his incredible ability to work with his hands. There was no project ever too big for this talented human being. He had a passion for life and a genuine love for others and was always willing to drop what he was doing to help someone in need. Surviving are his wife, Amy Walters of Fort Wayne; son, McCartney Walters; father, Dan (Rosalyn) Walters of Fort Wayne; mother, Sandy (Tom) Maurer of Fishers, Ind.; brother, Robert (Josh Hanson) Walters of Fort Wayne; sister, Valerie (Michelle) Walters of Indianapolis, Ind.; parents-in-law, Bruce and Linda Menshy of Fort Wayne; brother-in-law, Brian Menshy of Fort Wayne; and nephew, Bennett Walters. Celebration of Life is 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 20, 2018 at St. Joseph United Methodist Church, 6004 Reed Rd., with calling two hours prior beginning at noon. Memorials may be made to the McCartney Walters Education Fund or to St. Joseph United Methodist Church. To sign the online guestbook visit
