Walter, the eldest son of Metro and Mary (nee Hull) was born on March 13, 1949 on the family farm in the Willowbrook district. He attended Cherryfield School. Later he moved to Yorkton with his parents. As years went by Walter needed special care.
When his parents could no longer take care of him they moved him to the Langenburg Care Home. There he attended a workshop where he did a lot of crafts made out of wood. He loved fishing with his buddies.
He was predeceased by his parents, Metro and Mary and a step mother Rosie Halushka.
He will be sadly missed by his brother Vincent and wife Bernadette and their children Mary (Damian) Goebel and their sons Brayden and Noah; Robert; Brenda Halushka (partner Mel Mancego) and their daughters Danica and Daelyn. Along with the Halushka and Hull families and Walter’s fishing buddy Brad Koch.
The Funeral Service was held on Thursday, November 14, 2019 at Yorkton Memorial Gardens Family Centre with Rev. Father Leonid Malkov of St. Mary’s Ukrainian Catholic Church officiating. The responses were led by Lorne Stechyshyn and members of the parish choir.
