Mr. Walter S. Waldner, a long time resident of the Bezanson and Grande Prairie, Alberta areas, passed away suddenly at the Queen Elizabeth II Hospital, Grande Prairie, on Thursday, July 9, 1992, at age 68.
Walter was born in Guernsey, Saskatchewan on October 14, 1923. In 1927, the Waldners arrived in the Clairmont, Alberta area, where Walter grew up. He attended several schools, including McHenry, Twilight, and 5 Mile.
As a young man he worked for several people in the area, and became known as an avid horseman. His love of horses was evident throughout his entire life. In the early years of farming, he always had a team of work horses, and later on, Walter was instrumental in the sport of harness racing coming to Grande Prairie. He enjoyed travelling around the province, driving his horses in races. He went as far as driving in Regina on the "A" Circuit and was an active participant in the sport until, July, 1990.
He and Angie were married on November 5, 1947. In 1957, Walter and Angie bought the Olson family farm in Bezanson, where he resided until his passing. Walter was employed as an orderly at the auxiliary hospital, Central Park Lodge, and Pioneer Lodge. He was a definite favorite amongst the patients. He was a kind and compassionate man.
Perhaps Walter's legacy is his sense of humor and remarkable memory. Everyone who knew him was touched by his wit, and his uncanny ability to remember people, dates, and events. During his last few years, Walter spent time reacquainting himself with relatives still in Saskatchewan.
Walter leaves to mourn his passing his wife Angie; daughter Carol (Mark) Adams; son Darrell (Janet); grandchildren: Nicole, Scott, Chelsie, and Kyle; and great-grandson Cody; sisters: Olga, Maggie, Ann, and Tina; brothers: Andy (Marion), and John; and numerous nieces and nephews, cousins, and sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law.
He was predeceased by his sister Sarah in 1988; mother Sarah in 1966; and father John in 1946.
Public visitation will be held at Oliver Funeral Chapel, Grande Prairie, on Monday evening, July 13, from 7:30 to 9:00 P.M.
Funeral service for the late Walter Waldner will be held on Tuesday, July 14, 1992, at 2:00 p.m. in St. Paul's United Church, Grande Prairie, Alberta (please note change in location), with Pastor Michael McWhinnie officiating. Interment to follow in the Glen Leslie Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, memorials to the Alberta Heart & Stroke Foundation would be appreciated by the family.
Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Oliver Funeral Chapel & Crematorium, Grande Prairie. Telephone 780-532-2929.
