Leonard “Len” Francis Walter, of St. Thomas and formerly of Chepstow, passed away Saturday, July 17, 2021, at home with family by his side following a brief battle with cancer, in his 81st year.
Survived by his beloved wife Margaret (nee Groch) of 47 years. Loving father of Reverend David Walter of Georgetown, and Daniel and his wife Theresa of Blenheim. Proud grandpa of Ivy and Aly, his pride and joy.
