Obituary notice for Bernard "Paddy" Walshe LM 911

Bernard “Paddy” Walshe

 Dearest Macushla
 Born September 11, 1927, in Clara Co. Offaly, Eire.
 Passed away June 30th, 2018. It is with heartbreaking
 sadness that the passing is announced of Bernard
 “Paddy” Walshe. Predeceased by his beloved wife
 Barbara, mother Esther, father Peter, brother Patrick
 and little sister Mary-Jane. Devoted father of Debbie.
 Cherished grandfather of Alanna, Lance, and Garreth.
 Leaves to mourn also his son-in-law Keith, numerous
 family members in Ireland and England, and many
 friends and colleagues in Canada. Paddy was a soldier, 
as he always reminded everyone of having served for
 several years in the British Army, prior to joining the 
Canadian Armed Forces in 1954. He retired in 1982
 as a Chief Warrant Officer, whereupon he embarked 
on his next “Career”, as a guard for nearly twenty years
 for the RCMP-Maple Ridge Detachment. Paddy was
 an extremely avid runner, sometimes being stopped
 as he ran by the RCMP for “Speeding”. Paddy was a
proud member of the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch
 88, in Maple Ridge. He was the epitome of the word
 “Decent”, and was truly “one of a kind”. He will be
 sorely missed. Graveside prayers and interment to 
be held on Thursday, July 12th at 1:00pm, in the
 Maple Ridge Cemetery. Please no flowers, but if
 you would like, a donation to the Royal Canadian
 Legion, Branch 88, in Paddy’s name would be
 greatly appreciated.13287084
