It is with sadness we say goodbye to our husband, father, brother, uncle, grandfather and friend, Maurice Walton. Mose passed away Tuesday, May 28th, in Nelson hospital at the age of 84.
Mose was born in Trail in 1932. After graduating high school, he studied architecture and surveying at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology in Calgary. Mose then traveled throughout Canada working for Montreal Engineering. In 1972, Mose returned, with his family, to the Kootenays and settled in Nelson. He worked on many major projects in the region including the Seven Mile Dam and Kootenay Canal. Mose enjoyed playing baseball and golf, as well as camping, boating, fishing, and walking his dog Bandit.
Mose is survived by his wife Connie, daughter Colleen and granddaughter Emma (Charlottetown, PEI), and son Gordon (Robson). Mose and his brothers, George and Norm, and sister, Pat (Nelson), were close friends throughout their lives. He will be remembered and sadly missed by Pat and Norm; as well as by sister-in-law Margaret Walton (Puyallup, WA), and many nieces and nephews.
Mose was predeceased by his parents, Norman and Margaret, brother George, brother-in-law Alfie Nelson, niece Aaron Walton and pal Bandit. By his request, there will be no service. Friends are invited to remember Mose in their own way, perhaps after completing a long straight drive off the tee, challenging putt, or when sipping a dark rum and coke.
