It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, grandfather & brother. Walter passed away after a brief illness at the Peace River Hospital. He is survived by his wife of 63yrs Suzanne, his 3 sons Jeffery, Michael (Orysya) and Tom (Lucille) and his 6 grandchildren Laura, Jimmy, Simon, Emily, Samantha & Magdelina. He is also survived by 3 brothers: Bob, Ritchie & Ted and 2 sisters: Dorothy Fox & Barbara Stewart and is predeceased by his parents Cecil & Violet and brothers Barry & William.

Walter was an accomplished athlete and won numerous championships & awards in Hockey, Golf & Curling. He was inducted into the Lethbridge Sports Hall Of Fame in 1986. He was also a successful businessman for the past 43yrs who gave generously back his community volunteering his time on numerous boards including the Peace River Golf & Curling Clubs, Kinsmen Club, Rotary Club and Chamber Of Commerce all of which he was a past president. He also sat on the board of directors for the AB Golf Assoc, IIBAA and the AB Driver Control Board.

He travelled extensively and was an active, involved father who coached all 3 son’s hockey and loved to take them golfing and curling among other activities. He will be missed by many, he was a true engaging friend. His keen sense of humour and quick wit are only surpassed by his enormous generosity as a loving husband and father.
