WALTER MAGURA February 22, 1927 - September 19, 2009 With great love and wonderful memories the family sadly announces the passing of Walter at the Riverview Health Centre, at the age of 82 years after a brave battle with cancer. Left to mourn his passing is his loving wife of 59 years Iris (nee Tocher) their children, Gail Perras, Debbie McLaughlin, Leslie Magura, Darlene Santos, Wendy Fischer, Richard McLaughlin, John Santos, Dean Fischer, grandchildren Deidre and Brittaney Santos, Leigh Fischer, Thomas and Matthew McLaughlin. He is survived by his sister Mary Sawchuk and numerous other family members. Walter was born in Cloverleaf, Manitoba. He started his career as a teacher in a one-room school house. At the age of 22 he joined the RCAF on February 14, 1949 and in his 27 years in the service he moved from the west to the east making numerous lifelong friendships along the way. In 1979 he was employed with Bristol Aerospace until 1987. Upon retirement Walter and Iris enjoyed travelling south and abroad. He enjoyed attending the Bristol retiree breakfast group. Walter had many loves which included going to garage sales, being an exceptional handy man and participating in his children and grandchildren's lives. He loved practical jokes, mom's amazing pies and animals of all kinds especially dogs. He enjoyed sports such as golf and curling. He was a true friend to all who knew him and enjoyed visiting. Anyone who knew Walter will remember how much he enjoyed sharing a good joke! The memories of his warm laugh and great sense of humour will always endure. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Walter's memory to Cancercare Manitoba. Cremation has taken place. Memorial Service will take place on Monday, September 28, 2009 at 3:00 p.m. at Neil Bardal Inc., 3030 Notre Dame Ave., 949-2200
