Condolences to all the Gretzky family. He was a dedicated hockey dad and an inspiration for the country. His loss will be felt by many.
A wonderful man. Such an inspiration to so many people. He touched so many people with his kindness and generosity.
Walter loaned me Wayne’s Team Canada shirt and a trophy to attract kids to a construction program we were promoting at Mohawk College. A number of years later we met him in Halifax, where he was supporting a CNIB golf tournament. He ended up signing autographs for dozens of people. Such a gracious man!
To the Gretzky Family on the
passing of their Patriarch Walter Gretzky.
A dedicated Hockey Dad and lover of the game. He will be missed!
Its unfortunate that because of the China COVID-19 pandemic so many, many, of his family, friends, and Acquaintances won’t be able to pay their last respect personally!
R. I. P. GREAT HERO!
I remember being in Brantford the day of his wife’s funeral, and the number of people, and the traffic was insane… Sad he won’t get the in-person tribute he deserves.
He always had time for everyone. I met him at a Leaf’s game several years ago. He would take pictures with fans during periods. A very nice man. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. RIP
Good guy. I interviewed him several times when Wayne was playing with the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds.

Walter would tour the hockey arenas in the Brantford area collecting broken hockey sticks. He would then take them to the W. Ross Macdonald School for the Visually Impaired where they would be made into hockey stick benches. He would then autograph them “W. Gretzky” and they would be sold or auctioned off. A really great guy.

My husband Ray & I met Walter Gretzky one evening @ the local Tim Hortons that he frequently visited, he approached our table and welcomed us to Brantford, we had quite the chat with him & his company, he gave us his autograph for our grandkids, each by name. Such a pleasure meeting a beautiful genuine man like Walter Gretzky. Our condolences -to the Gretzky Family…
I had the pleasure of meeting Walter a few times. He was such a kind down to earth man. Never forgot his roots. A truly proud Canadian .

Sincerest sympathies to The Gretzky family. He was a fine man who represented Canada with compassion and heart.
My husband and I and our friends (another couple) met Walter Gretzky in 2016 at an Ottawa Senators hockey game. He was very kind and gracious, and happily posed for a photo with us.
