KOWALEVSKY _ Walter 1940 - 2006 It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Walter Kowalevsky on April 14, 2006, at the age of 65 years. Walter will live forever in the hearts and minds of Rose Lynn, his wife of forty-four years; and their two sons, Kris and his wife Margie of High River, and Brian and his wife Laurie of Indianapolis. Time spent with Grandpa will be lovingly remembered and missed by grandchildren, Michelle, Kayle, Grace and Gus. Walter is also survived by seven brothers and sisters and their families: Lena, Ruby and Leonard of Swan River, MB; Edward and Lorraine of Edmonton; Peter and Nick of Calgary. Walter was well known and highly regarded by his colleagues in the construction industry in and around Calgary. Whether it be Palliser Square in the heart of downtown, the main grandstand at Stampede Park, or other projects too many to mention, Walter left a permanent impression on the landscape of Calgary. When not at work, Walter's free time was consumed by his love of harness racing. As an owner, a breeder, and a fan, he was respected and admired by the many friends he made in over twenty years of involvement in the racing community. Walter was passionate about his family, the outdoors, and hockey, particularly the Flames. In recent years, he enjoyed building a weekend retreat at Tie Lake where he loved to explore the mountains with Lynn on their ATVs, fish, relax, and share stories around the fire with friends. Truly larger than life, he will be missed by all those who knew him. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Alberta (No. 200, 119 - 14 Street N.W., Calgary, AB, T2N 1Z6). A Celebration of Walter's Life will be held in the Chapel of Mountain View Funeral Home on Friday, April 21, 2006 at 2:00 p.m. Arrangements entrusted to MOUNTAIN VIEW FUNERAL HOME and CEMETERY, 17 Avenue S.E. at Garden Road (1.5 km east of 84 Street S.E.).
