November 1, 1937 - July 24, 2020

To those I love and those who love me; I will be with you always. When tomorrow starts without me, don't think we are far apart. Every time you think of me, I am right there in your heart.
We will always love and miss you. Wally loved life, his family, fishing, the cabin, his friends and his church. His belief in God was strong and carried him through his pain.

Rest in Peace.

A private service will be held at a later date as per Walter's wishes.

A Fisherman's Prayer
God grant that I may live to fish until my dying day, and when it comes to my last cast, I then most humbly pray; when in the Lord's safe landing net I am peacefully asleep,
that in His mercy and love I be judged as
big enough to keep.

Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • Wally to me was and always will be Pa. I have many pictures of all of you fishing and out at the lake my favorite is Pa on the new riding lawn mower proud as could be. I would like to share one story. Last Christmas Ma Pa and Rick came for lunch. Since it was after Christmas I just made sandwiches and Ma brought dessert. Pa took an egg salad sandwich and his comment was My thats one good egg salad sandwich! and he really meant it. Warmed my heart that such a simple thing could bring such joy and appreciation. He was such a wonderful caring person. My husband and I have gone through some tough challenges ourselves these last couple of years and the support and thoughtfulness we received from all of you has been most comforting. I hope we can do the same for you at this most difficult time. Our deepest most sincere sympathy on your loss thoughts an prayers are with you. Love always.

  • Days have not passed that I haven’t thought about you and the things we use to do. Fishing was what we liked to do best and camping. I love you dearly and will miss you. RIP Dad Love Jeff - Posted by: Jeff Derksen (Son) on: Aug 01, 2020
