Obituary

Naisbitt, Wallace Gordon

It is with great sadness that our father, grandfather and great-grandfather, Wally Naisbitt, a WWII veteran, passed away peacefully on October 17, 2019. He joins his predeceased wife Velma, sister Lorraine (Ween), and his parents Blanche and Milfred.

His memory will be cherished by his children Scott (the late Glenda), Jane (the late David Metzak), Randy (Robin) and Norm (Lynn), He was a devoted grandfather to Anita, Kerri, Allison, Nicholas, Michael, Erin, Jeannette and Derek and a proud great grandpa to Brett, Tyson, Curtis, Luca, Sofia, Mila, Siena, Monroe, Axel and Kara. Wally will be missed by his sister-in-law Ruth and nieces and nephews.

Born in Burlington on September 15, 1922, Wally was a keen athlete, earning the title of Junior Field Day Champion at Burlington High in 1936 and 1937. He enlisted with the 6th Canadian Anti-Tank Regiment in Petawawa and served overseas in Northwest Europe from 1942 to 1946. Married in 1948, Velma and Wally enjoyed 65 years together. He worked at the Studebaker company in Hamilton for twenty years and later with Ingersoll Fasteners. A devoted family man, Wally inspired his four children with his zest for life, his quirky sense of humour and his strong work ethic.

He was a long-time member of St. John’s Lodge #68, Ingersoll, and a very active member of St. James Anglican Church and the Royal Canadian Legion, running Ingersoll’s annual Poppy Campaign.

Wally loved escaping to ‘Linger Longer’ the cottage he built with his sons at Sauble Beach. His love of music was infectious! Heartfelt thanks to the staff at Oxford Manor and Leigh-Ann for their kindness, patience, sense of humour and excellent care over the last few years.

Please join the Naisbitt family in a celebration of Wally’s life at St. James Anglican Church, 184 Oxford St., Ingersoll on Saturday, October 26 at 11:00 a.m. Visitation from 9:30-11:00 a.m. at St. James preceding the service. In lieu of flowers memorial donations in Wally’s memory to St. James Anglican Church or the Royal Canadian Legion.

Funeral arrangements entrusted to the McBeath-Dynes Funeral Home 519-425-1600.
