Walter (Wally) Sultan, beloved husband of Pearl Marion Sultan (nee Ritz) of Calgary, passed away on Wednesday, July 10, 2013 at the age of 86 years.
Wally was born in Vancouver and grew up in Calgary. At age sixteen he joined the Reserve Army as a ‘boy soldier’, signing up for active service in the Canadian Army three months later.
