    I’ve known Wally and his immediate family almost as long as I’ve lived in this city. Impish grin and suspenders, always ready with a joke or some Yiddish phrase. He bequeathed considerable handyman prowess to Keith and trusted us – well, Keith more so – to our crazy projects.

    I was around that house so often – it’s hard to believe he’s gone. Keith, Sharon, Ross, Cindy, my thoughts are with you.

    I’m looking forward to hearing more of your memories.

  5. So sorry to hear of Wally’s passing. I worked with Wally for several years and thoroughly enjoyed his companionship and his sharp and witty sense of humour. I know that he had several severe health issues in the past few years but it never kept him down for long and he always maintained that wonderful humour despite all odds. He was a gem of a coworker and he will be missed. I only came to know of his passing when reviewing the obituaries relating to a friends mothers death. I remember several years ago when my mother died, Wally took the time to contact me to offer his condolences and I really appreciated his thoughtfulness Rest in peace Wally!

    Dear Sharon, it has been many, many years ago since we were neighbours in
    Kingsland ~ but I have wonderful memories of the times spent with you and Wally – and at that time young Ross and Keith! Sharon, I too lost my husband in October and know how you are feeling; such a sad loss. Wally was a special man and I wish you peace and acceptance in the weeks/months to come.
