Terry "Pickle" C. Walter

Terry C. Walter, 64 of Hamar ND passed away on Wednesday, March 8, 2023 at his home.

There will be a gathering of family and friends on Friday, March 17th at the Gilbertson Funeral Home, Devils Lake from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. with funeral services on Saturday, March 18th, 2023 at 11:00 a.m. at the Warwick Public School. Burial will be at a later date.

Terry Craig Walter, better known as Pickle, son of Elaine (Johnson) and Marvin Walter Sr., was born on May 13, 1958 at Devils Lake ND. He grew up on the family farm in the Warwick area. He attended Warwick School and graduated from Warwick High School with the class of 1976.

Terry loved the outdoors, loved farming and ranching and worked for many years helping area farmers and ranchers as a hobby more than a job.  He had so many self-taught talents including that of a mechanic, welder, just a Mr. Fix-It. His famous saying was “You can fix anything with a hanger, duct tape and a pair of pliers.”

Terry and Sharon met in 1984 and grew up together in the Warwick area and shared over 40 years of a life of love, trials, tribulations, and so many good and fun times together. They married on February 23, 2003 and called Hamar, ND home.  They purchased the Hamar Bar in 1991 and worked side by side for 30 years, until son Joel took over the operation.

Terry looked for any opportunity to go fishing, hunting, or driving around the countryside. If on those drives some wildlife was spotted it sometimes became a target of Terry’s rifle. He was always checking on how the neighbors cattle and crops were doing. If you were out and about the countryside, Terry was always ready with a cold beverage and great conversation. He was a mentor to many young people when it came to learning to hunt and fish. Terry was always willing to help out neighbors, friends and strangers.

Terry was a magnet to kids and animals, especially canines. They were never denied a treat from Terry. His family meant the world to him, everyone he met was soon a friend. He will be so very missed.

Terry was a member of Warwick Lutheran Church, the Warwick Rod and Gun Club and Warwick Rodeo Club. He especially enjoyed membership in the “American Honky Tonk Bar Association”.

Terry’s loving family include his wife Sharon; sons Josh (Jessica) Walter, Aneta ND, Joel (Crystal) Walter, Hamar ND, Ryan (Missy) Forde, Moorhead, MN and Aaron (Alyssa) Walter, Penn ND; special daughter Jasmine Strand, Sharon ND; grandchildren Preston and Torbi: Ethan, Anwynn and Benjamin: Hadley and Piper: Gatlin, Statler and Bellamy: Trevor; siblings Margie (Daryl) Haas, Fertile MN, Marvin Jr. (Linda) Walter, Warwick, Gail (Ken) Yuly, Ruthville ND, Nanny Forrest, Warwick, Les Walter, Plymouth MN, Rick Walter Sr., Devils Lake ND and Darrel (Dori) Walter also Warwick; in-laws Judy (Larry) Ronning, Shelly, MN, Terry Gartner and Gene Gartner both of Fargo ND; many dear nieces, nephews and their families.

He was preceded in death by his parents Elaine and Marvin, brothers Roger Walter and Tracy Walter, sister Cleus Walter and brother-in-law Darrell Forrest.

Urn Bearers will be Terry’s nephews Ben Walter, Lucas Walter, Nick Walter, Garret Moxness, Derek Haas, Darren Haas, Jason Haas, Kelly Walter, Rick Walter Jr. and Bill Forrest.
