Among his many interests, he enjoyed bowling, being a collector at Ste. Marguerite d'Youville Parish, and working on projects around his house. Most of all, he enjoyed caring for his sisters and going out to breakfast with them.

As his niece, I will alway treasure my memories of our crazy uncle Wally. He loved to play with us as kids. I remember us watching as he set up the pool for summer and then our delight as he tossed us around in the water. Always ready with a smile and laugh. Thank you Uncle, rest peacefully. Love, Irene and Dave

I have so many fond memories of my Uncle Wally. He was always happy and joking around with his family. When I was young he loved to play with me and my sister, Joan. And then later he played with my children and even let them drive his riding lawn mower. That was exciting. He was a wonderful man and will be missed. I too will treasure the many fun memories he gave us. Will Love you always.

I will always remember my Uncle Wally and the fun times we had together--how he played with all the kids when I was young, and how he was always smiling and joking. I treasure the memories. May he rest in peace.
