Wally was known as a hardworking man dedicated to his family. He was extremely kind, generous and caring and provided his family with all they could ask for.
Wally’s professional career was in sales and management. He was manager at Western Supplies Plumbing and Heating for over twenty years in Saskatoon, Camrose, Alberta, Kelowna B.C. , Langley B.C., and Nanaimo. He then moved on to sales at Bartle and Gibson in Nanaimo. His achievements in sales earned him recognition and numerous awards in the coveted “ Million Dollar Club”.
Later in life, Wally became very ill and fought a long hard battle. The doctors nicknamed him the “teflon man” because nothing seemed to keep him down.
Wally will be dearly missed, always loved and never forgotten.
In lieu of flowers Wally would have wanted any donations to go to an animal shelter of your choice.
