Regina, Sask -- August 27, 2012 -- It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Walter Hoffman, a stalwart friend and partner to the collision repair industry. Walter passed away, surrounded by his family, on Sunday, August 19, 2012 following a short battle with cancer. A memorial service took place August 23 at Christ Lutheran Church in Regina, Sask.
Walter was a well-known part of the southern Saskatchewan collision repair market. A number of businesses benefitted from his leadership over the years, including Fairmont Bumper Plating, Wally’s Bumper Service and Wally’s Coatings.
Bill Stanzeleit is the General Manager of L.J. Peters Warehouses. He knew Walter for over 25 years.
“I first called on Wally as a rep for 3M, and I’ve kind of called on him ever since,” says Stanzeleit. “He was a classy gentleman. He didn’t compromise his values to get ahead, yet he did well. People appreciated that.”
Walter was born in Eatonia, Sask on December 18, 1939. He took great pride in owning and operating his own business for many years. On July 13, 1968, Walter married the love of his life, Delila. Walter enjoyed spending time with his family and friends and also loved spending special times in the summer at Craven World, and winters in Yuma, Ariz.
He was predeceased by his parents Eugene and Mathilda and brother James. Walter is survived by his loving wife of 44 years, Delila; his children - Shannon (Gaston) Gareau and Brent (Cindy) Hoffman; grandchildren - Walter's very special girl: Chelsea, Richard (Jen), Eric, Michael (Lindsay) and Elizabeth (Yvond); great-grandchildren - Dixon and Chase; siblings Mildred (Myron) Olafson, Evelyn Arnett, Mickey (Helen) Bloos and Floyd (Else) Manz; sister-in-law Dorothy Hoffman, brother-in-law Larry (Frieda) Dorey; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
