December 10, 1928 - June 14, 2020
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our father Walter Burtnick Sr. on June 20th, 2020 at the Riverview Health Centre.
Dad was predeceased by his father William Mother Tekla, sisters Ollie, Agnes and Eleanor, brother Peter, brother-in-law Ted and granddaughter Eva.
He is survived by his children Barbara (Bob), Walter Jr. (Thelma), Greg (Kathy) and Paul (Bernadette); brother Raymond (Sonia) and his grandchildren.
Dad worked for Manitoba Hydro in several positions retiring in 1986 after 38.5 years of service.
In Dad's passing, the day is remembered and quietly kept.
The Master Weaver
Our lives are but fine weavings
that God and we prepare,
each life becomes a fabric planned
and fashioned in His Care.
We may not always see just how.
The weavings intertwine,
but we must trust the Master's hand.
And follow His design,
for He can view the pattern
Upon the upper side,
We still must understand
That it's He who fills the shuttle,
It's He who knows what's best
So we must weave in patience
and leave to Him the rest....
Not till the loom is silent
And the shuttles cease to fly..
Shall God unroll the canvas
And explain the reason why..
The dark threads are as needed
In the Weaver's skillful hand
As the treads of gold and silver
In the pattern He has planned.
Life is very precious and should be
lived in peace.
As per Dad's request, cremation has taken place and there will be no service. In memory of Dad, condolences may be sent to the family at www.cropo.com.
In lieu of flowers one can donate to a charity of ones choice.
