Walter Hayde – A Tribute

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a loving husband, devoted father, proud grandfather and inspiring community leader, Walter Hayde.

Walter passed peacefully the morning of March 8, 2017 surrounded by family and close friends.

On October 16, 1952, Walter was the first born to Sheila and Brigadier Desmond Hayde followed by his younger brothers, Michael and Norman.

On May 24, 1977, he married AnnaRita Gonsalves with whom he shared almost 40 years of marriage. Together, they raised three daughters, Elizabeth, Jennifer and Michelle. Walter is also a proud grandfather of two loving grandsons, Eric and Joseph.

Walter enjoyed a successful career in sales that carried him from India to Dubai before settling down in Canada. His 20 years in real estate was inspiring to many. He was inclusive of all, supported many communities and was a kind, generous individual who volunteered at every opportunity.

With courage and dignity, Walter fought his eight month battle against pancreatic cancer. He was always positive and stayed strong for his family until the very end.

Walter will be missed by his family, friends and associates for his zest for life, his passion to help others and his charismatic personality.
