Our entire family is saddened by the news of Walter’s passing. He was such a good Muskoka neighbour to us when we first bought next door. I remember him sizing up our boat and our boathouse and asking if the boat was going to barely did. He helped us learn about cottage ownership and, along with Elsa, made us feel welcome with invitations to dinner and such in the early days. We have just learned that once when our son had a large group of friends from camp at the cottage, and there was a power outage. Walter arrived at the door with a large pot of stew. No doubt, Elsa had a hand In that! They were a great team and he will be missed! We are sorry to have to miss the service. Sincere condolences from the entire Harris family.

Dear Dianne and Marilyn I’m sorry to hear about the loss of your sweet father. I could tell he loved his family dearly. I’ll miss his early morning grumbly though he always turned things around with his sense of humour! Hugs!
