Obituary – JustinWyatt Casey Duerr

Wyatt Duerr, age 23, of Des Moines, Iowa was the son of Chris Duerr and Jennifer Hellzen. He was born October 15, 1996, in Des Moines, Iowa and passed away during a tragic motor vehicle accident south of Ackley, Iowa Friday, November 1, 2019.

Wyatt grew up in Leon, Iowa with his family and attended Central Decatur Schools through his sophomore year. In 2013, he moved to Minot, North Dakota with his mother and bonus dad for his junior year and returned to Leon for his senior year, graduating from Wayne Community Schools in Corydon, Iowa in 2015.

Soon after graduation, he began working for Mediacom. In 2017, he moved to Wisconsin and started working for Q3 Contracting as a proud member of Laborers Union 563. In March of 2019, Wyatt accepted a promotion, transferring to the Des Moines office.

In his free time, Wyatt loved to do anything outdoors, especially having bonfires with his closest friends, building and racing remote controlled cars, “building something from nothing”, especially through woodworking, playing Xbox with his buddies, and spending time with family, friends, his dog, and his girlfriend, Bailey.
