Walter (Wally) Jakim Parson

January 21, 1934 - August 25, 2023



Wally passed away peacefully in his sleep on Friday, August 25, 2023 in the Palliative care unit of Abbotsford Regional Hospital. He was born January 21, 1934 to Pearl and Jakim in Admiral Saskatchewan. He worked for the Canadian Pacific Railway, which in 1986 is where he had an accident that left him an amputee. He was a determined and strong-willed man who was fiercely dedicated to regular gym workouts during the most physically demanding years of his life. He made many lasting friendships at the gym. Over the past 8 months Wally fought determinedly through some extremely challenging health incidents. That strong will & physical strength as well homecare, visits, phone calls, encouragement and prayers of family and friends kept him fighting till he could not anymore.

Wally loved to read and play cards and crib. He especially enjoyed travelling and visiting with family and friends in MB, SK & BC. One of his most cherished regular trips was to attend Harvest with Vi, Tony and family in Carnduff, Saskatchewan. He was a member of the Bakerview Church, where he also made many lasting friendships. Unfortunately, due to Covid and recent health issues he was not able to attend regularly.  But his faith in the Lord was always strong.

Wally was predeceased by his wife Sandy in January 2011 and his beloved dog Ozzie shortly after. He was also predeceased by his parents Pearl and Jakim, sister Sally and brothers Art and Mike. He leaves behind daughter Kim (Wayne), granddog Sox, who have been caring for Dad since April; son Grant (Janie), grandbird Aleta, grandson Jason (Christine), granddogs Luna & Hope, grandson Jeremy, great-grandson Kitt (Bryn), great-granddaughter Caroline (Mason), great-granddogs Larry & Eddie, ex-wife Elsie, sister Nina, niece Wendy (Mark), grandnephew Jackson & grandniece Alexa, granddogs Maggie & Mocha, niece Sandy, grandcat Bear and grandnephew Jakim as well as many wonderful friends.

Thank you to the Caring Touch Home Care workers and Doctors & Nurses at Abbotsford Regional Hospital and all the friends and neighbors who helped dad throughout his health challenges.
