We Remember

SCHREDL, Walter (Wally) Hans

God completed His final touches on the soul of Walter Schredl and took him Home on May 8, 2018.


Walter grew up in Vienna, Austria and immigrated to Canada as a young adult. He leaves behind a legacy of a loving family: caring husband to Jan, father to five (Walter Jr., Sandra, Eric, Catherine and Laura), grandfather to ten and predeceased by sister, Linda Evoy.


Though a brilliant mechanical engineer, winning accolades in his profession, his final work was focused on being the faithful caregiver to his paralyzed wife.


Walter was musically gifted and could play the piano by ear, to the delight of his wife and children. He could also make the biggest cannonball into the pool. He spent countless hours designing and perfecting every mechanical aspect of his home, inventing things and immersing himself in anything to do with trains. Walter was fascinated by mathematics and science, and will no doubt by full of joy to have the heavens reveal the answers to life’s mysteries. He despised anything sticky and always wondered why God created zucchini.


We would like to thank all of the devoted nurses and care aids who helped him through his battle with cancer.


There will be prayers for Walter on Monday, May 14th, 2018 at 6:30 pm and a funeral to celebrate his life on Tuesday, May 15th at 11:00 am with a reception to follow. Both will take place at St. Charles Garnier Parish, Kelowna, BC.

    I have incredible memories of this man and his family. When I was young I would visit on a regular basis to see my school friend, Sandra. The incredible house he decorated and designed along with his entire family will be a permanent fixture in my memory from my childhood, (including his ivory chess set in his office that Sandra and I would play with as kids. I’m very sorry for you loss.
