Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • Dearest Marlene, Wishing you peace to bring comfort, courage to face the days ahead and loving memories to forever hold in your heart. Walter was a true gentleman through and through and we will miss his kindness, humour and above all, his friendship. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. Cathy & Ed Hawrysh - Posted by: Edmund Hawrysh (Friends) on: Jul 16, 2020

  • My deepest condolences to Marlene and family. Always enjoyed our chats over the fence. Walter was friendly, soft spoken with a great sense of humour and teasing. He is now free of pain and Marlene. May you take comfort in that. Rest In Peace Walter. - Posted by: Frieda Parsons (Neighbour ) on: Jul 16, 2020

  • Walter Dressler & Ralph Mattes hired me as an admin clerk in the early 1970s. I fondly remember they were great bosses teaching me the ropes of a Union shop. Following the closure of that Local office, we all remained friends and shared hospitality and visits for a few years. As commonly happens, time passes, things change, and we lost staying in touch - except occasionally, my late husband Ivan and I would run into Walter at South Beach, also "trying his luck" and catch up on what we've been up to. May he rest in Peace. Sadly, I send heartfelt condolences to Marlene & the family. - Posted by: Connie LeBlanc (Formerly worked with Walter at Teamsters) on: Jul 15, 2020
