Passing of David Walser

Brother Knights,

I received some very sad news this evening when I returned home from work.  Dave Walser passed away yesterday.  As many of you may know, Dave was an active member of our Council and a good friend.  He will be greatly missed.

Arrangements are described in the message that I received from the funeral home, below.  The Knights will be having a prayer service at 6:30 on Thursday evening at the Henry Walser Funeral Home.  It would be greatly appreciated if as many Knights as possible attended the Prayer Service on Thursday at 6:30pm, as well as the funeral.

Visitation will be Thursday from 2:00pm to 4:00pm and 7:00pm to 9:00pm.  The funeral will be Friday at 10:00am at St. Mark’s.

Please remember Marianne and the family in your prayers.

Beloved husband of Marianne (nee Herteis) Walser for 38 years.  Loving father of Daryl (Dawn), Rhonda Weiler (Rich) and their daughter Dakota Rose and Jennifer Walser (boyfriend Jason Huber).  Loving son of Connie and the late Harold Walser.  Dear brother of Cathy Shulist (Fran), Debbie McTavish (Murray), Reg Walser (Jane) and Julie Mullen (Pete).  He will also be missed and remembered by the Herteis family:  Mother-in-law Carol and the late Joseph, brother and sister-in-laws, Jim (Janet), Dennis (Alice), Tom, Bonnie Shipley (Dave), Ron (Julie) and the late Rick.

David was a devoted member of St. Mark’s Catholic Parish, the Knights of Columbus of St. Marks and a member of the Credit Institute of Canada.

David’s family will receive relatives and friends on Thursday, June 5, 2014 from 2-4 and 7-9 pm at the Henry Walser Funeral Home, 507 Frederick St., Kitchener.   Prayers will be offered on Friday, June 6, 2014 at 9:20 am followed by procession to St. Mark’s Catholic Parish, 55 Driftwood Dr., Kitchener, for a Funeral Mass at 10 am followed by a reception.

As expressions of sympathy donations to St. Mark’s Catholic Parish or Carmel of St. Joseph in St. Agatha would be appreciated by the family (cards available at the funeral home).
