Walter was born on January 15th, 1939 in Spring Valley, Saskatchewan, the youngest of seven boys and the thirteenth child to Peter and Anna. As a young buck, Walter travelled to Alberta to start his first career as an Iron worker, then as a linesman for Calgary power. From there he met and married Sue, together they moved to Thorhild and pursued his love of farming and raising cattle. Years later they settled in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan where he and Sue continued to farm, raise cattle and garden. Walter was best known as a local elk and cattle rancher/famer with a green thumb; he could make any plant thrive.
Walter was a loving husband, father, grandpa, uncle and brother with a deep love for family connection and he will be missed dearly.
A Memorial Service will be held to celebrate his life at a later date this spring. In lieu of flowers, donations in Walter’s name may be made to Cornerstone Christian School, 43 Iroquois St E, Moose Jaw, SK S6H 4S9. Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane. Gary McDowell, Funeral Director 306-693-4550
