We are incredibly sad to share that Wally passed away peacefully on October 11, 2018. Wally grew up in Manitoba, and earned his master’s degree in history from United College and his law degree (with honours) from the University of Manitoba.
He met and married his loving wife, Bridget, and they moved west. After a brief stop in Calgary, they spent the past 50 plus years in Edmonton. Wally loved the law and had a wonderful career as a lawyer where he built not only a practice, but a loyal and collegial client group. The majority of his career was with the Corbett Field and then Corbett Benkendorf firm. Wally was a beautiful soul–semicolon– he was always fair, kind and generous, and we will miss the twinkle in his eye.
He was very dedicated to his family. His children and grandchildren were his joy – and he leaves to mourn his loss wife, Bridget–semicolon– children, Barry (Joan), Tracy and John (Maria)–semicolon– and grandchildren, Eric, Kate, and Anna.
A Celebration of Wally’s Life will be held at 10:00am on Tuesday, October 16, 2018 at Connelly-McKinley Funeral Home 10011 – 114 Street, Edmonton, AB.
