Walter Norman “Doc” Granger passed away peacefully with his family and friends at his side on June 23, 2010 in Chilliwack, BC.
Doc was born September 6, 1930 in Vancouver, and spent over 26 years with Canada’s military – as a member of the Royal Canadian Engineers; as a paratrooper and working with bomb disposal. He retired as a captain, and then spent thirteen years as the administrator for the District and City of Chilliwack. He spent some time as a coroner, before finishing his working years selling Real Estate here in the valley.
His joys included: gardening (especially his roses and tomatoes), and chasing raccoons out of the pond! He was proud to have been a member of the “Hole in the Wall” for over 30 years, and over his years was a Rotarian, Kinsmen, Freemason and a member of the Legion.
Doc will be lovingly remembered by his wife of over 58 years, Helen; his son, Steve (Lisa); as well as one brother, Ted (Madeline) and his nieces and nephews.
A Graveside Service will be held at Noon on Friday, July 9, 2010 at Chilliwack Cemeteries, with a Celebration of his life to follow at the Promontory Lake Estates Clubhouse, 6001 Promontory Rd., Chilliwack, beginning at 2:00 pm. Friends and neighbours are welcome to attend both services.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a charity of your choosing.
