Wally was raised on the family farm at Chauvin AB where he attended St. Aubins and Dr. Folkins schools. In 1968 he moved with the family to Calgary where he continued school at St. Matthews. Just out of school he held several jobs over several years, before finding his niche in the Calgary home construction business. He started work for a contractor; Southview Disposals, in his late teens and after a few years, partnered with his mother Edith, to purchase the company and operate a fleet of light trucks and drivers involved in construction site clean-up and hot shot services for several of Calgary’s major homebuilders. Wally made many memorable contacts in the industry over the years. In 1996 after 18 years of operations Southview Disposals was shut down as many changes were coming to the industry. Wally, in this time period, was instrumental in helping care for his father, Walter, who was suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. Wally then accepted a position with Stepper Homes in Calgary and worked there until 2008 when his failing health would no longer allow him to continue. . Wally was a gentle, pleasant and large as life fellow with a huge infectious grin. He enjoyed hunting and fishing, the Calgary Flames and most of all associating with people. Family was a huge priority for Wally and nothing made him happier than a summer get together or holiday celebrations. After his health no longer allowed him to work outbound he focused on helping care for his sister Janet until her passing and later his mother, which he did faithfully until his passing. Over the years the family and friends would often call on Wally for help in one form or another and Wally would always respond with, ” Sure, When do I have to be there?” and he would be. He will be remembered gently and sadly missed by all those close to him. He was loved.
