WALTER KROKER entered the gates of heaven, on Wednesday, April 20, 2022 at the age of 75 years.
He is survived by his beloved wife of 54 years Iris, children Sherry (Brian) and his treasured grandchildren, Brianne, Emmitt and Carson, brother Henry (Helen) and sisters-in-law Marilyn and Pat, as well as many in-laws, cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.
Walter was born in Consort, AB, on October 6, 1946 and grew up on a farm in the small community of Sedalia, AB. He spent his whole career with the Alberta Wheat Pool. His favourite activities were curling, golfing and camping. He was a big fan of the Blue Jays and the Flames and would always say this is going to be our year. Once retired, he became a snowbird and headed to Palm Springs for warmer weather. Most recently, he enjoyed playing games and cards with his friends in the condo and at Nordbridge.
Walter was a man of deep faith who loved the Lord. Praying was like breathing. A mentor and friend to many, he enjoyed being a Big Brother. Friends were made wherever he went. Walter will be forever in our hearts. His favourite bible verse was Philippians 4:19, “And my God will meet all your needs, according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus”.
Special thanks to Dr. Smuts, Dr. Amatto, Jacky Ady, 4A and Palliative Care staff.
A private Family Funeral will be held at a later date.
