Gladys, Steven and Shelley, Jim and the extended family.

Our greatest appreciation for the life Walter lived on this earth.

He was a helpful soul who always had a twinkle in his eye and a kind word for me as a young man and trusted me implicitly with the grain truck and help during the harvest of our farmland. I have many fond memories as a young man of the farmyard and road side visits with Walter and my dad as they would contemplate the weather and the growing or harvest season.


I unfortunately can not make the trip to Westlock for the celebration of life, but know that I will toast him with my coffee on Monday morning.


Best regards,

Sandy and Bernadette Lyons

Our condolences to Gladys & family on the passing of Walter. Would have not missed the service, but did not find out about his passing until after the funeral. Walter was one of the nicest persons I have ever met, he always made you feel so special and the conversations were always so gracious and interesting. RIP Walter until we meet again.

Kindest Regards
