JOHN WALKER (published on September 27, 2008)

JOHN WALKER Peacefully on September 25, 2008 at the Maples Personal Care Home, John Walker passed away at the age of 81. John was born on 26 Ralph Ave. in Transcona August 30, 1927. He was predeceased by his beloved wife Jean in 1994. Remaining to cherish his memory are his son Dale, wife Sandy, grandchildren Julia and Lee; son Tom, wife Jan, grandchildren, Scott, Karly and Kelsie; daughter Sandra, friend Duane, grandchildren Lucas and Alia. He will also be missed by his brothers and sisters and their families. John had been employed by Knit-Rite Mills Ltd. until his retirement in 1989. John was an avid member of the Transcona Golf Club where he achieved a lifetime membership for his dedication. He and Jean spent many good times on and off the course which led to some lifelong friendships. John was also a member of the Transcona Legion where he took part in establishing the Dart Club in 1987. John was a very proud man, and although he suffered from polio from a young age he refused to let it prevent him from living a full life. His humour and sarcastic wit (which by the way he seems to have passed on to his grandchildren) will stay with us forever as will the songs Found a Peanut and Ice-Cream Song . He had a great love for animals, especially dogs who loved him back. The family would like to thank Maples Personal Care Home for their care and compassion. A special thank you to friend Gib Turgeon for always being there. Dad gave to many charities over the years, so in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a charity of your choice. Give Mom a hug for all of us Dad!!! Funeral service to be held Thursday, October 2 at 1:00 p.m. at Transcona Funeral Chapel, 1800 Day Street.
