It is with incredible sadness that I let you all know of the very sudden passing of K-W Naval Association President Walter Harvey on Sunday afternoon. Walter was just coming to the end of his first year as President of the KWNA, and was very much looking forward to continuing on his journey in this role. Walter was also a former President of the Navy League of Ontario - K-W Branch.
Sad news from the Navy Club
Walter's smile and hearty east coast laugh was always a welcomed one to whomever he encountered. He spent many years working to support the Royal Canadian Sea Cadet program through his work with the Navy League of Ontario, supporting Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps 94 Warspite for many years. He followed this up by becoming involved as a director then Executive Officer of the K-W Naval Association before assuming the position of President just 11 months ago.
Walter could always be found having a good time, whether it was sharing a laugh on the patio, singing a song while enjoying karaoke, cooking his famous gravy in the galley or spending time with his family; especially his three grandchildren.
Walter is survived by his wife Alma, daughter Crystal, son Steve and their families as well as many other family members and friends.
As arrangements become available I will ensure they are passed along. Please keep Walter's family and friends in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
