Wally has gone to share his bountiful personality with his family and friends that he has missed for many years. He leaves behind many that will miss his love and humour. He always had stories to entertain all, wherever he went he carried jokes in his pocket to bring a smile and laughter to everyone. He enjoyed having the family gather together for a game of cards or a roll of the dice, his grandkids will cherish these and many camping memories forever. Wally spent majority of his working career driving freight trucks across the country, and never missed the annual Old Time Truckers Breakfast. He will also be greatly missed by extended family of brother in-laws, sister in-laws and tons of friends. Special Appreciation to a long time family friend who stood beside him through his last days Randy Leaman. Special thanks to all the staff of 3 North at Ridge Meadows Hospital.
