It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Walter Frey of Central Butte, on March 19th, 2009. Walter was born on the family farm at Fox Valley, Saskatchewan on November 2nd, 1925. He married Emily Wandler on May 28th, 1953 at Moose Jaw and together they raised 4 children on the family farm north of Central Butte. Walter is survived by six sisters Helen, Kay, Marge, Betty, Delores and Marlene; three brothers Joseph, David and Eddy. He leaves to mourn his wife Emily; three sons Randy (Lil), Boyd and Reg; one daughter Candace (Rod) and six beautiful grandchildren. Walter farmed for many years on the family farm near Bridgeford and retired in Central Butte. Dad loved cards, especially bridge which he played so often, as well as cribbage and solitaire. He enjoyed fishing and hunting and was a past president of the local Central Butte Wildlife Federation. He spent many a winter curling and loved to watch the game when he was no longer able to curl himself. Travelling was also a big highlight in Dad’s life with Mom, spending many winters in Arizona and taking trips all over the world. They were also members of the Good Sam RV club for nine years and traveled many places to camp as a group with friends. Dad cherished every moment he spent with his family and has left them all special memories. The last four years he became very limited with being on kidney dialysis in Moose Jaw but never complained and accepted this challenge by facing it head on. He was a man of few words but one of great integrity and honesty. He will be greatly missed but never forgotten. Prayers will be held on Monday, March 23rd, 2009 at 7:00 p.m. in St. Mary’s Church in Central Butte. The Funeral Mass will be held on Tuesday, March 24th, 2009 at 11:00 a.m. at St. Joseph’s Church in Moose Jaw. Father Francis Folleh will be presiding celebrant. For those so wishing, memorial donations in Walter’s name may be made to the Kidney Dialysis Unit, c/o Moose Jaw Health Foundation, 455 Fairford St. East, Moose Jaw, Sask. S6H 1H3.
