Walter Robert George COUPER

Couper, Walter Robert George

September 12, 1944 – February 18, 2008

It is with great sadness we announce that Walter passed away peacefully at the age of 63 after a courageous battle with cancer. He is survived by his loving wife Sharon of 46 years, his children Robert, Kelly, Steve (Paula) and grandchildren Kimberly, Siara, Kyla and Tiana. Wally enjoyed his years working at UNIVAR Canada with all the friends he made there and even in his final days still talked about how he wished he could go back to work. Coach Wally leaves behind an amazing legacy in the sporting community. He loved coaching and mentoring kids and thoroughly enjoyed the time he spent with Steve’s U11 SurDel Select Storm soccer and Delta Heat 97 fastpitch teams. The girls and their families were supportive and inspirational to him in his battle. The family would like to extend their gratitude and appreciation to Dr. Mitchell, Dr. Oja, Dr. Alexiadis, and Michael from Delta Prescription Clinic. Also special thanks to the chemo and palliative care staff at Surrey Memorial Hospital for their loving care. We love you and will miss you dearly: Wally, Dad, Grandpa, Papa, Coach, Grapes and Best Friend and we know you will be watching over us. We will be celebrating Walter’s life at Chalmers Elementary School located at 11315 – 75 Ave, Delta, BC on March 1, 2008 at 3:00pm.
