SNOW Walter Llewellyn Passed peacefully away at The Dr. Leonard A. Miller Centre in the presence of his loving family, on May 17, 2019 at the age of 86 years. Predeceased by his parents, Victor and Ethel, sisters Annie Dawe (Charlie) and Minnie Fowler (Art), brothers Fred (Marjorie) and Don. Leaving to mourn with precious memories his wife of 58 years, June (nee Snelgrove), son, Lorne (Tracey), daughter Ann (Daniel Haedrich) (Norwich, Vermont) and son Greg (Karen), seven adoring grandchildren Matthew, Daria, Caitlin, Alexandra, Sydney, Sarah and Brennan. Also remembering him with love are his brother, Wallace (Marie), sisters Louise (Peter Stalder) (Mississauga, ON), and Joan (Clifford Andrews, deceased), as well as a large circle of extended family and friends. A retiree of Johnson’s Insurance, Walt was a kind, soft-spoken and gentle man, more a listener than a talker, but always the first to lend a hand to anyone in need. He enjoyed the outdoors immensely – fishing, gardening and ritual daily walks in any type of weather. As a father and grandfather, he was a builder of tents and forts, inventor of silly games and instigator of mischief. The grandchildren’s love and affection for “Grandad” was evident in the last few months through numerous visits, phone calls and Facetimes. He leaves us all with many treasured memories. Cremation has taken place with a private family inurnment to follow at a future date. A celebration of Walt’s life will be held for family and friends on Wednesday, May 22, 2019 from 4:00–7:00p.m. at The Fluvarium, 5 Nagle’s Place, St. John’s. The family would like to express their sincere thanks to Dr. Cheryl Hurley and the staff of the Leonard A. Miller Palliative Care Unit for the care and kindness shown to Walt in his last days. Special thanks as well to Dr. Sohaib Masroor, Dr. Roger Butler and close family friend, Dr. Chuck Hobeika, for their invaluable caring and support. As an expression of sympathy, donations may be made in Walt’s memory to the Food Bank or The Salvation Army.
