Wally became involved in the Elks Lodge. While in the club, he made strong friendships and enjoy contributing to such a worthwhile organization. Sheila and Wally love to travel. Trips to Holland, Hawaii Yuma and Epcot to name a few. Later in life, they enjoyed bus tours to Four Bears and Deadwood with family and friends. Wally was pre-deceased by his wife of 58 years, Sheila; his son Darren; son-in-law Rod Byblow, as well as eight of his siblings and their spouses.
