Walter Wallace Edwards

June 30, 1946 - March 30, 2024


Walter Wallace Edwards, seventy seven, suffered a heart attack and passed away peacefully on Saturday, March 30, 2024 in the company of his loving wife and one of his adored daughters as they each held one of his hands as he took his last breath and they told him they loved him.

Walter was born in Grand Prairie, Alberta on June 30, 1946 to Lucy Anna Baker of Edenwold, Saskatchewan and Howard Dean Edwards of Boise, Idaho.

Walter relocated to the Lower Mainland in 1960 and soon after started working in the pig farming business where he completed the Herdspersons Training Program.  Unfortunately many years later he broke his knee when he was head butted by an angry sow.

Walter’s second marriage was to Carol and this was one of his greatest highlights, as they would spend twenty-nine years together. Walter enjoyed the many trips Carol and he took after he retired. They drove all across Canada in a camper. They stopped at Niagara Falls and went on the Maid of the Mist and saw relatives along the way. They went on a Caribbean Cruise, saw the Space Needle in Seattle and enjoyed relaxing in B & Bs in Agassiz and Hope

Walter also had a great love for God and the way of the church. He found God originally in 1972 and reaffirmed that love in 1994; even to the point of a couple of speeding tickets trying to get to church on time.

Walter will be greatly missed by his wife Carol and her daughters Rachael, Juaneta and Charlene. He will be profoundly missed by his own children Nicole, Patrick and Christine.

Walter has many grandchildren and great grandchildren who will remember him. I, like many other people, will miss his sense of humor.  Walter is predeceased by his parents Howard and Lucy, his sister Loreen, his brothers Norman and Randy and his grandson Tyler.

May you find peace, Walter.
