On May 2nd we said goodbye to an amazing man. We called him "Dad". Most will remember him as "Wally". He will also be remembered as a business owner, accordian player, band member, pig roast host, human merry-go-round, water-ski boat driver, lover of fine foods and open-door policy for his friends.
Dad was very proud of us, his daughters, Sharon (Al), and Monica (Greg). Fondly remembered by his grandchildren, Cole (deceased), Taylor, Dane, Barrett, Violet and great-grand daughter Sophia for sharing his favourite joke or his infamous bear hugs.
Also missed by Rosanne and his sisters, Stella (Sebastian), Francesse (David), and Ann (Tony, deceased). Dad is predeceased by his brother Anthony (Claudia).
Whether by the lake, at the shop or on the road
Dad was the guy we could always hold
accountable for, a funny joke, a genuine smile
that will stay with us, forever and a mile.
As your daughters we are thankful for all your patience, love and unwavering support. Your generous and kind philosophy will stay with us forever.
Don't worry Dad, Greg will keep the windows clean!
