WALTER JOHN CHUDO
August 17, 1938 - March 16, 2021
Walter was born in Winnipeg, MB to Jean and Andrew Chudo, the eldest of three children. A proud North End resident his entire life, Dad graduated from Tec Voc High as a mechanic and began operating Transport Towing and later Harvey's Mobile Transport, alongside his wife Bonnie. Together they became parents to Allison, Barb, Andy and Nancy. Dad also had a special bond with his many feline friends along the years, most recently his beloved Chaos.
After years of long haul towing and mobile transport, Dad quietly retired and lived a simple life on his own. He spent time in his shop, restoring classic cars, building race cars, and entertaining numerous childhood friends while playing Cribbage and sharing happy memories of Dream Weaver drag racing in Gimli, MB. He also enjoyed Jets and Bombers games on TV and always stayed up late for Letterman. His adventurous side was apparent with many road trips, mostly around Manitoba and sometimes driving West.
Dad was sadly predeceased by his brother John Chudo; his parents, Jean and Andrew Chudo; his great-nephew Michael Chudo; his sister Susan Undiks; and a number of his close friends.
He is survived by his ex-wife Bonnie Chudo; his children, Allison Hanuschuk (Rod), Barb Cobb (Dallas), Andy Chudo and Nancy Kessler; his grandchildren, Emily Hanuschuk and Morgan Kessler; nieces, Marilyn Puglisi and Cynthia Undiks; nephews, Wally Chudo (Tracy), Ron Chudo and William Undiks; and numerous great-nieces and nephews.
A kind thank-you to Dr. Collister and team, Third Floor, Unit 2, Seven Oaks Hospital for providing Dad with comfort and reassurance in his final days and to the Pharmacy team at Empire Drugs for their care and compassion that spanned decades.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation of time or money to the Winnipeg Humane Society or a charity of choice.
Cremation has taken place as per Dad's wishes and a family funeral is arranged as per COVID-19 restrictions.

Condolences & Memories (1 entries)
The first time I met Walter was when he was handling the estate of my brother-in-law. Every time I went to Wpg. Old Country Sausage I would stop to see him while he was working on trailers, he had said its time for a break. He showed me the cars that he and his son were working on. He also told me the story about his cat Lucky and why he name it. Rest in peace Walter you will be missed. - Posted by: Larry Smith (Friend) on: Mar 20, 2021
