It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to Waldon “Wally” Johannes Kernested.  Wally passed away on Saturday, October 14, 2017 after a long list of health issues.  Wally was born in Ashern, Manitoba on March 12, 1944.  He was predeceased by his partner Debbie Thompson in 2009.
Wally was a great man who loved his family dearly.  He leaves behind his son Trevor and his son Mark and daughter in law Renee along with his three grandchildren Jeanine (Brett), Kaitlin and Ryan and his new great granddaughter Hailey.
Wally loved socializing with his friends and he could usually be found at the pub or on the golf course enjoying a beer and offering advice.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of BC and the Kidney Foundation of Canada will be accepted at his memorial.
