Will be sadly missed by his children and grandchildren Carol and her husband Guy Archer (Terri-Lynne and Elizabeth), Norm and his wife Lynne (Stephen and Ashley), Shelly Fetter (Andrew), his 2 great grandsons Jack and Owen and his son-in-law Dan Fetter.

Friends will be received by the family Sunday afternoon and evening from 2-4 & 6-8 at the Turner Family Funeral Home, 53 Main Street, Dundas.

A kind soul and a true gentleman whose mentorship when I first started scouting will always be appreciated…RIP

Deepest sympathies to Walt’s family. He will be missed.
Over a lifetime, Walt’s interests and exploits have left me with some wonderful memories of him. I first knew him as a rugged defenceman with the Dundas Jr Ford Flyers with one spectacular collision in particular with Murray Oliver of the rival Burlington Mohawks. Later, Walt served as an assistant to Dick Borthwick in the pro shop at Hamilton Golf Club in Ancaster, where the late Hugh Barlow Jr and I joined Walt for a game of golf on that beautiful layout. During a lengthy residence in Kapuskasing, I learned that Walt had been a teammate of Nick Rukavina, a Kap native who had played with Walt in Philadelphia in the EPHL. Both Nick and Walt had fond memories of each other. The last encounter with Walt was a few years ago when he was accompanying his grandson at a provincial junior golf qualifier held at Mike Weir’s home golf club in suburban Sarnia. To his family I offer sincere sympathy at this profoundly sad time.
To Walters family we offer our sincere sympathy and prayers , may their memories of happier times be a comfort during this difficult time. Love John and marilyn meagher
Our deepest condolences to the entire Wingfield family at this time. “Blessed are those who morn. They will be comforted.” Matthew 5:4
Just wanted to wish Walter’s family well. He was always available to offer advice and support when I was breaking into the business and I will never forget that. He was a good man who was great to be around and was respected by everyone
