January 16, 1949 – March 10, 2019
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our husband, father, grandpa, and friend Walter Box.
Walter was born in Quesnel, raised in 100 Mile House at ‘The Lodge’, and eventually moved to Williams Lake in 1977 to continue his working career with Weldwood.
His life touched many individuals and families in many different circles. Some of these include Fire Departments in both 100 Mile House and Williams Lake, various snowmobile clubs, many baseball teams, men’s hockey & basketball leagues, the logging & plywood industries, many fishing buddies, and extended families from 100 Mile House and the community of Miocene.
He did not know the meaning of doing things half-heartedly or slowly.
Walter is survived by his wife Sue, daughter Robin Antoniuk (Dave), granddaughter Kendra; step children Michael Kjelsrud (Leah), Kate Berkan (Dale) and grandchildren Esmee, Emmett and Escher.
A celebration of his life is planned for June 8th 2019 at the Lazy ‘S’ Ranch on the Horsefly Road in Miocene. Details to follow as arrangements are made. ‘The Good Doctor’ wanted to be sure that all family & friends would be able to come together for his send off!
Many thanks from the family to all of Walter’s care givers from the past few years. Special thanks to all the staff & especially the trauma team at Cariboo Memorial Hospital, and to all the staff at Williams Lake Seniors’ Village. You all made Walter’s journey more endurable.
