Walter Caryk passed away peacefully on Tuesday, April 19, 2016 at the age of 92. He is survived by his loving wife Jean of 67 years; sons John (Sharon) of Sorrento and Randy (Candace) of Kelowna; grandchildren Brittney (Allen) McNabb of Abbotsford, Courtney (Jay) Stevens of Aldergrove, and Chelsea (Dustin) Fortier of Abbotsford; great-grandchildren Austin, Grayson, and Beckett; sister Mary McArthur of Olympia, WA; brother Don (Marnie) of Cloverdale; and several nieces, nephews, and extended family.
Walter was a great people person. Traveling on holidays he would always run into a friend and, if he didn’t, he had new friends by the time we left. He was always the chief cook and bottle washer when we were camping. Walter had a generous heart and would be first to lend a helping hand to whomever needed it.
Walter was very good at anything he did, a perfectionist at his golf game, his sport of fishing, building or with the incredible cross stitch pictures that he made for all his family and friends. He will be truly missed by all who knew him.
Should family and friends so desire, memorial donations may be made to a charity of choice.
