Walter (Wally) Zanewick passed away peacefully on Monday, October 2, 2006 at the age of 87 years.
Walter was born in Regina, SK. He served in the Royal Canadian Navy and was stationed in Halifax, NS with the medical core. Returning to Regina in 1945 he enjoyed the management of Sherwin Williams Paint Company until his retirement in Calgary. For a short period of time, his position and experience in the paint business caused him to be transferred to Edmonton, AB. Wally worked in Calgary where he made his home. He was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion #285.
Wally is survived by his daughter and son-in-law Sharon and Keith Moore; his grandson Dean (Nicole) and granddaughter Leah (Kiley); and his great-granddaughter Hailey of Regina, SK. He is also survived by his sisters Olga Schmidt and Mary (Randy) Kostick; his brother Bill (Doris); brother-in-law Roy Dobson; sister-in-law Anne Zanewich, all of Calgary; and many nieces and nephews. Wally was predeceased by his loving wife Anne of sixty-one years; his parents; two sisters, Nellie and Alice; and his brother Jack.
Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn’s rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush.
I am quiet birds in circled flight,
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.
Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Bonaventure Catholic Church (1600 Acadia Drive S.E.) on Friday, October 6, 2006 at 1:00 p.m. with the Very Rev. Gregory Coupal V.F., Presider.
