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 In lieu of flowers one can donate to a charity of ones choice.
