Walter Hamm
1936 - 2024

Walter Hamm born on July 23, 1936 to John P and Elizabeth Hamm.  He was baptized June 16, 1957 at the Winkler Sommerfeld Church.

Walter married the love of his life Mary Kauenhofen June 28, 1959, together they had four girls, Wanda (Bob), Sharon (Pete), Val (George) & Dolores (Trevor). 

Nine Granddaughters Twyla (Ryan), Nicole (Terry), Jayme, Leanne (Nathan), Brittany (Scott), Kayla (Bryson), Brooke (Jesse), Holly and Calista.

Eleven Great grandchildren, Isabelle, Jackson, Tahlia, Peyton, Dior, Brielle, Sophie, Smith, Avery, Harleigh & Wells.

Walter was predeceased by his wife Mary Kauenhofen on April 15, 2021.

Walter had a love for music, cars, sports and weather, he would use calendars to keep a record of the weather.

Walter had a love for music, especially country music Johnny Cash was one of his favorites.  He started playing his fiddle when he was 8 years old, taking a few lessons quickly realizing that he could play by ear so lessons were no longer needed.  His love for cars started at a young age, he would stand and drive as he was too small to reach the pedals when sitting.

Wherever Walter worked he enjoyed what he did, whether it was the gravel pit, Hometown Service, Manco Dairies, Hiebert Trucking or Piston Ring which was his last place of employment, delivering parts in his retirement for 18 years.  He truly enjoyed this job and the people he became friends with.  He retired from Piston Ring at age 80 when his health no longer allowed him to handle the parts.

Walter was at Buhler Active Living Centre – Villages for the last 4 ½ years, one of Walters highlights would be when Chomper came to pick him up on Wednesdays to have biscuits with Bill Bornn.  On February 8, 2024 Walter peacefully passed away at Buhler Active Living Centre – Villages.

We as a family would like to thank the caregivers at Silver Lining Care, Wiebe Funeral Home, Dr Brett, Dr Borchers and Karen Schaak. Thank you everyone for your prayers and words of encouragement.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Villages – Buhler Active Living Centre.
