    We regret to advise of the death of Master Warrant Officer Walter “Wally” Murray Hayward on 4 April 2004 in Chilliwack, BC. Wally served with the Royal Canadian Engineers for 30 years in Canada, Germany, Tanzania and England.

    Wally enlisted in the Royal Canadian Engineers in February 1948.  After Basic Training he was posted to 23rd Field Squadron where he qualified as a parachutist.  He served two tours with the Field Squadrons in Germany, had an Instructional Staff assignment with the Army Reserves, was on exchange posting in England at the Royal School of Military Engineering, was posted to Tanzania as part of an international development project, taught at the Royal Canadian School of Military Engineering and was Squadron Sergeant Major at 2 Field Squadron in Camp Gagetown, NB.  

    When Wally retired from the Canadian Forces he settled in the  Chilliwack area and worked in the correctional services for 11 years.  He was very involved with the Mount Shannon United Church with the governance and the day-to-day operations maintenance. 

    A memorial service will be held on 13 April 2004 at 1:30 PM from the Mount Shannon United Church, 46875 Yale Road, Chilliwack.  A private family interment will follow the service. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society would be welcome. {dcApr2017gd}[ zpp]
