  1. I am sorry for your loss. I came across Philip’s name and photgraph among my father’s memorabilia. We are also from Wales. The Walters family were very kind to my father during his wartime service in Canada, and I should be very glad to make contact with any of them. I am so sorry that this comes so long after Philip’s passing. Kind regards.

  2. Eva and Family
    We are very sorry to hear of Phil’s passing. He was a great man with a big heart!
    I have known Mr. Walters since I was a young girl in Sunday school at Devine Street United Church – he left a lasting impression! Phil also worked with my Father at Polysar – lots of wonderful memories.
    Warm hugs Eva – he was one in a million.
    Sincerely, Wayne & Joan

  8. My condolences to the Walters family. I met Phil as a young person at Temple Baptist church on Talfourd St. in the early 60’s. He was such a kind gentleman welcoming me and my family to his home, taking me to my hockey games when my father, uncle or grandfather were unable to. I just recently inquired about Phil speaking to a young man by the name of Andrew who attends Temple Baptist now. I am saddened that I will not be able to talk to him but my fond memories of this loving man will be with me always.
