On February 18th, 2019 at Michael Garron Hospital, Wladimir “Walter” Olejnik passed away at the age of 84 while surrounded by family.
Walter had doctors scratching their heads as he battled prostate cancer for over 20 years. Doing so with a smile and a positive attitude every step of the way.
Walter will be greatly missed by his wife of over 61 years, Frances. His sons Michael, John, James, Jeff and daughter Michelle. His grandchildren Rebecca, Julia, Liam, Brooke, Matthew, Ryan, Gregory and Ethan. He will also be missed by his daughter-in-laws Barb, Tina, Sue and Kelly. And by his favourite son-in-law Paul.
Walter touched the heart of everyone that he met. He had a positive attitude that was contagious. He appreciated every little thing that anyone did for him and let them know with a very gracious thank you. He was a selfless person that would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. He had a great sense of humour which he kept till the very end. When asked how he feels by doctors or nurses his response would be “with my hands”.
The loss of a father is painful to bear. He’s a source of quiet strength that’s missed when he’s not there. Take comfort he’s in heaven and looking down at you. He’ll be there throughout the years, watching and guiding you. He’s your own Guardian Angel and he’ll be with you to the end. Until you meet in heaven when your broken heart will mend.
You are so greatly missed Pops.
A service will be held for family.
Nos plus sincères sympathies à la famille et aux amis de Wladimir “Walter Olejnik..
