It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Walter Edward Ward on Thursday May 30, 2019 in his 96th year. Beloved husband of Marjorie for 74 wonderful years. Loving father of Susan Denyer (John), Stephen Ward and Julie Sinclair (Thane). Cherished Grandfather of Graham, Laura, Adam, Emma, Blakely and Alice. Loved uncle of Janice and Frank Ward. Wally will be remembered for his WW2 service as a typhoon fighter pilot receiving the Legion of Honour for completing 100 missions. His career with the Peel Board of Education as the principal of Gordon Graydon Secondary School, founder of INDEC Alternative School and the director of Continuing Education has enriched the lives of young people and has given him immense pleasure over the years. In his community, Wally has received awards for citizenship in Mississauga, and has headed committees that provide services and language learning for adults and new Canadians. Friends and family will remember Wally as living his life with enthusiasm and showing great interest in all those around him. For this reason he has been blessed with the richness of many friendships throughout his life.
