Wally grew up in the Nelson area and 35 years ago moved to Vernon. He was a man who loved his family deeply and enjoyed spending as much time with them as possible. He lived for his music and was a professional singer/guitarist for many years who always enjoyed performing on stage, when and wherever he could. His all timefavourite music was Country. Wally loved travelling and enjoyed exploring all of Canada as well as many other exciting destinations. His heart was in the great outdoors where he loved fishing and relaxing by an evening campfire. He was involved in various occupations during his life time; those being as a commercial fisherman, the RCMP/City of Vernon for 17 years, and most recently with Raven Traders in downtown Vernon.
In respecting Wally’s wishes, he was cremated and there will be no formal service held. As a tribute to Wally, he would want all of you to love your family, take time to travel, go fishing and simply live life to the fullest. He would want you to enjoy more and worry less!
