Walter was born in Lakeside, Nova Scotia on April 12, 1900. He was working as a fisherman in Centerville, Nova Scotia when he enlisted in the Canadian Army in December of 1915. His brother Abner also served in the Canadian Army. Because he was underage, Walter lied about his age on his attestation paper and stated that he had been born in 1897. After the war, Walter came to the South Peace and filed on SE 13-75-3-W6. During World War II, he served in the Veterans Guard of Canada. He married Sophie Frances Kepke in 1945. Walter died on November 14, 1953.
