It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Wally Kowalski on February 12, 2014, at the age of 84. Wally was born on May 12, 1929 in Skorkowka, Poland to Gottlieb and Emma Kowalski.  He moved to Germany in 1946 and then to Vernon, B.C. in 1948.  Wally is survived by his two daughters, Jean (son-in-law Michael) and Lucy; and his two granddaughters, Kerri and Jacki.  He was predeceased by his parents and step parents.  Wally was a very hard working man and took great pride in his work.  He had a hand in constructing many homes and commercial buildings in Vernon before moving to Alberta where he farmed and raised his family.  Wally enjoyed his retirement years in Vernon.  He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.  The family wishes to extend their sincere thanks to the staff at Heron Grove, to the staff and volunteers at the Vernon Hospice House and a special thank you to Stella Sophonow for her many years of friendship.
