Feb 28 1919 – Aug 10 2008
It is weeks before Wally’s 90th B’day
It is days before his wife Anne would be 85 And it is only hours before they would have been wed 65 years.
Although this was to be a year of milestones it was not to be, it was now his time to go.
Blaine Lake Sask. was his home ’til the army called Regina was where he went, but that wasn’t all. In 43 he married Anne , his living doll. A son named Roy came in 44, dad was in the army and still playing ball. Go to the minor leagues, they all said.
But in 55 came along Debbie, and back to the farm he was led.
That life on the farm was not meant to be, the relatives all said – come to BC
Ocean Falls was the townin 57. Campbell River was next, in 66 the rest of his life spent.
He lost his only son Roy (Marlene) the fall of 2004. But he still had one daughter, Debbie (Steve) they never had more. He leaves one grandchild, Stacie Rae. She is named the star in his eye and for art she is famed. And how hard it is to say good bye And how hard it is when you start to cry To realize he’s gone and on a journey alone And to realize he’s never ever coming home. There was one special person we have not said, my husband, her son in law, her father, his friend. He was so patient, so giving and so full of care. We all thank him with love for always being there. Thank you Steve.
The family invites you all to come help us remember Wally (with a schwiggle) at Eagles Hall 1pm-3pm Sat. Aug. 23,2008.
