October 13, 1929 ~ November 6, 2023

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Waldemar on Monday, November 6, 2023 at the age of 94 at Grace Hospital, Winnipeg, MB.

Waldemar was predeceased by his wife Yvonne, and his sisters Greta, Alma and Mirze.  He will be lovingly remembered by his children Gary (Sandra), Ken (Dianne), Ron, Jeff (Pat), Karen (Brian) and Donna (Randy); grandchildren Shane, Lauren (Blake), Jennifer (Ben), Kaitlyn, Emily, Dale (Candice), Cori (Stephen), Ron (Janelle), Tim (Kaitlyn), Brett (Elizabeth) and Scott; great grandchildren Caleb, Zara, Lena, Lexie, Harlowe and Oden; and sister Ruth (Creighton).

Wally was born and raised in Seven Sisters Falls.  He met the love of his life, Yvonne, at Kelvin High School and they got married in 1951.  Wally started working for MTS in September of 1948 and retired on May 6, 1988.  In 1979 he went to Saudi Arabia for a year through his work with MTS. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, golfing, reading the paper and doing crosswords.  He did a lot of coaching and managing kids’ hockey teams.  Wally enjoyed going to see Bob and Dorothy in Custer, SD and visiting family in B.C.  Wally, being a part of the MTS Engineering Department, was a natural at drawing up plans.  He built their home in Winnipeg, their cottage in Grand Beach and finally their retirement home in Lac du Bonnet.  He would often sit on the deck and just watch boats go by, enjoying the view.  He played and enjoyed baseball and curling after his retirement with the friends he had made in Lac du Bonnet.  Wally led a good life with no regrets.  He was a kind, loving and caring gentle soul. 

As per Wallys wishes, cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
