Daryl Glen Walbeck


Daryl Glen Walbeck passed away peacefully early Monday morning, May 27th, 2024, due to complications (according to Daryl) of everything. He was born on June 6th, 1938 to loving parents, Glen Mervin Walbeck and Roxie Leadrue Larson Walbeck of Draper, Utah.

Daryl graduated from Jordan High School where he excelled in Sports, playing Baseball for Jordan High and in the Utah Industrial League, and Basketball as part of the Jordan High 1955 State Championship team, where he was named All-State. Daryl was part of a unique group of friends that met while attending Draper Park School and Jordan High; that remained friends throughout their lives, he cherished these friendships. During high school, Daryl was also in the Utah Air National Guard.

Daryl attended Utah State University, where he played Basketball for the Aggies and was a member of the Sigma Chi Fraternity, where he continued his military focus joining the ROTC. After his sophomore year, Daryl chose to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Europe West German Mission.

After his mission, Daryl married his high school sweetheart, Linda Lee Jacobson in the Salt Lake Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Linda was the love of his life, having unexpectedly left this earth before Daryl, he brought her a rose every week of their separation showing his love to her until they could be reunited again.

After his mission, Daryl attended the University of Utah, he graduated with a degree in Economics and received his Regular Army commission upon graduation. During this time, he earned his pilot’s license with the intention of being a pilot in the Army, however, he ended up in the armored cavalry. Daryl completed Ranger School, Jump School (as a Jump Master), and completed Advanced Training. He was stationed on the DMZ in Korea (where he earned his black belt in Taekwondo) and at Fort Meade in the 6th Armored Cavalry Regiment. Daryl left active duty and joined the Utah National Guard as a Green Beret, where he was a Company Commander in the 19th Special Forces, until he retired as a Major.

Daryl loved his family and spending time with them whether it was skiing, hunting, fishing, or camping. He coached his sons in baseball for years, supporting all his children’s sports and many activities.

Daryl spent many hours in church service as a temple worker, scout master, in the Young Men’s Programs, and served in several Bishoprics and as a Bishop for the Draper 2nd Ward. He loved the Lord and strived to be an active and true disciple of Jesus Christ every day. Daryl and Linda were able to serve many missions together including multiple service missions and in Columbus, Ohio. Serving others together, was a joy they cherished. Daryl will be greatly missed; his humor, his sayings, and his legacy of love for his wife, children, grandchildren, siblings, and friends.

Mervin and Roxie Walbeck and his wife, Linda Walbeck; and is survived by his brother Lamar (Yoshia) Walbeck, sister Karen (Don) Nageli, brother-in-law Bruce (Joan) Jacobson; three sons Bradley (Stacy), Jeffrey (Bonnie), Derek (Nicole), and two daughters Deidre Ann and Amber; five grandchildren Chelsey (Andrew), McKenna, Reggie (Emily), Emmitt, Morgan; five great-grandchildren Schroeder, Wylie, Roxie, Lulu, Clara, Tessa.
