It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Walter, our beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather on February 14, 2021.
Walter was predeceased by his parents: Jarey and Dora, and his brother Peter.
He will be remembered by his wife Noella, children Michelle (Daryl), Gina (Gino), Tracey (Gary), Pam (Byron), and Trevor (Mirielle). Also, his grandchildren Brittney, Andrew, Riley, Gabriella, Lucas, Roan, Katie, Casey, and his only great grandchild Hudson.
Walter worked most of his adult life at CN Rail and retired in 1995. He was a weather enthusiast and was always able to predict the yearly weather based on his onion. Walter refereed hockey for many years and played baseball in his community. His favorite pastime was summer and winter street hockey with his children and grandchildren. The goalie nets were always the perfect pile of snow or sticks. He enjoyed working in the garden, walking, and daily visits with his furry friend Sasha.
The family would like to thank the staff of 6A West at the St. Boniface Hospital for their outstanding care.
Due to COVID-19 no funeral service will be held at this time. A private family memorial gathering will be held at a later date. For those who wish to sign the book of condolences please visit www.transconafuneralchapel.com.
