Tribute

 

Walter Karl Herman Beringer

1928 ~2016

After a happy and fulfilled life, Dr. phil. Walter Beringer was summoned into eternal rest on March 23, 2016. Walter led his life guided by a sense of grateful duty toward his family and his career as professor of Greek and Latin antiquity. His life was loyalty and love, fuelled by the strength of inherited faith. Predeceased by his beloved wife Mary and his sister Gudrun (Karl Heinz), Walter leaves behind in mourning his son David (Valerie Sanderson) and daughter Alison (Rick Wright) and brothers Helmut (Gisela), Rolf (Elsa), Hermann (Irmgard), and Wolfram (Dorena), and an extensive family. Walter lived for 15 months at his son and daughter-in-law's home and spent his last 2 months at Jubilee Manor. The family would like to thank all caregivers from Nelson Home Support and Jubilee Manor for their skilled and compassionate care of Walter.

Visitation: Monday April 4th 3:00pm – 4:30pm Thompson Funeral Home

 

Funeral Service: Tuesday April 5th at 11:00am in St. Saviour's Anglican

Thinking of you… Walter was an amazing kind and gentle man. He will be missed.

From: Inge Vandyken
Relation: I was walters barber and friend

My heart felt condolances to your family David. It was wonderful to meet and talk to your sister yesterday at your fathers viewing. It was truely an honour to have been the person that walter trusted with his hair and beard. It was an honour to be allowed into your home in order to care for your Vati in this area. You and Valerie gave your Vati the most loving care. Valerie’s humourous and heartfelt approach to Vati’s care was amazing. She’s a keeper. I loved talking to your sister. We had a wonderfully honest and perhaps a little creepy conversation regarding the passing of both our Vati’s. Hope the funeral went well and my thoughts are with you both.
