Not sure what to say?

A family man always. A kind smile and endless supply of anecdotes and family stories. Gone but not forgotten.

I will miss Wally's dry wit and endless family anecdotes.

I will miss Uncle Wally a great deal. I always was excited to visit with Uncle Wally when I was a kid and adult. He always was interested in what you were doing and made a point to always remember. He loved his family and delighted in telling stories. Uncle Wally use to tease me about the Hextall hockey players who played for Minnesota and were from Poplar Point. I will miss those times and hold them in my memory forever.
He was very special to Connie and I. We will miss him.

I am going to miss Uncle Wally We always had a special bond If we werent talking football he was telling me stories of the relatives He left me with lots of good memories Brian

Uncle Wally was a great guy and one to be remembered. He always made us feel at home and of course, we had got to hear his many stories. We remember his favorite drink, ice tea, with a little bump buried in the sand at Otter Tail! Condolences to you Auntie Stella, as well as Judy/Pat, Jody/Kerry and family. Love you guys. Janet and Dick

My memories of Wally started with Happyland Park in St Boniface. Had a lot of fun with both Stella and Wally in those days, After they moved to Minneapolis, we kept close contact, Bill and Wally at their Lake in Ottertail with all the work that needed to be done there. Many happy times in Minneapolis as well. Keep strong Stella, Love to you and all the family. Sister Sophie

I am Wally's nephew (by marriage with his wife, Stella being my mother Sophie's sister. Wally will always be in our thoughts as a wonderful man, who was both uncle and surrogate father figure to my siblings and myself (the Rauschers) when we lost of birth father when we were very young. With humour and that twinkle in his eye, he was always there for us as were his wonderful sisters-lots of laughter and hugs. So now gone but never forgotten. A much loved man. Condolences to Aunt Stella and...

Wally, Yes we butted heads alot but we also had some very nice talks alone. I always love having a cocktail with him. But most of all I loved that him And Stella where the most loving grandparents I could of ever asked for Rest in peace Wally and keep watching the kids I love you.

I always remember those little moments I had with Uncle Wally. He use to tell me stories, even though sometimes they were the same stories, they were his stories. I would just sit there and listen.
You enjoyed life to the fullest and loved family!
You always made sure if something was happening you were there!
No matter where it was – Winnipeg, Calgary, BC and anywhere else!
You always could count on Uncle Wally and Auntie Stella being there.
I thank you for being...
