It is with great sadness that the family of Walter Kochan announce his passing at the age of 86. Walter was born in Radway, Alberta on September 2nd,1936 to Bill & Annie Kochan.
Left to cherish his memory and celebrate his life are his beloved wife of 62 years, Elsie, his children Elaine (Sal), Shane (Tina), Clinton (Desiree), his adored grandchildren Justin (predeceased) Brandice, Brandin (Jillian) , Cody (Amber), Austyn (Krysta) and Ayda (Dallas); two great grandchildren Dylayne and Cohen ; two sisters Nancy (Lou), Diane (Brian) as well as numerous relatives and friends. Walter loved his family more than life itself. He would do anything for them and loved unconditionally. He was a quiet, genuine, proud man and to be part of his life was one of our greatest gifts. He ran a successful construction company, was a talented woodworker and for many years raised Simmental cattle. Walter took great pride in any work he did and had high standards for his work. He always said “If you want something done right, do it yourself.”
The family would like to thank Dr Raubenheimer and staff at Radway Continuing Care for their compassionate care during his time there.
Cremation has taken place. No service will be held per Walter’s wishes.
