GLANC, Walter - It is with great sadness that the family of Walter Glanc announces his passing on Tuesday, April 8, 2014, peacefully in his 93rd year. Walter was born in Russia and served with honour for the RAF Polish Air Squadron during WWII. After his service, he immigrated to Canada where he was successful in his profession as an engineer for Ontario Hydro until his retirement. His bravery and devotion to his country was only surpassed by his love for his wife Wanda (predeceased), whom he adored dearly and to whom he demonstrated true chivalry and commitment. He was a caring father to his eldest son Wally Jr. (predeceased) whom he raised with gentle guidance and endless patience. His support and adoration for his family is deeply treasured by his youngest son Ed and daughter- in-law Stasia. His skills as a fisherman are fondly remembered and lessons in patience are passed on through his granddaughters Ashley and Danielle. Walter was a loving family member to Paula McInerney and always looked forward to her Friday phone calls. Ever the gentleman, Walter was always impeccably dressed and his fedora and choice of neat suits will never be forgotten. His thoughtfulness, pride, and love for his family will forever stay in the hearts of his many nieces and nephews. Special thanks to his "guardian angel" Nancy Luce, whom he deeply treasured. Friends may call at the Turner & Porter "Peel" Chapel, 2180 Hurontario St., Mississauga (Hwy. 10, N. of QEW), on Friday form 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral Mass will be held on Saturday, April 12, 2014 at 9:30 a.m. at St. Maximilian Kolbe Church, 4260 Cawthra Rd., Mississauga. Entombment Assumption Mausoleum. Online condolences may be made through www.turnerporter.ca
