Suddenly at his home, Caledon East, on Saturday, September 7, 2019, Walter Getman. Loving son of the late Kataryna Beloposky and Anthony Getman, Iroquois Falls.  A meteorologist by profession, Walter worked for the Ministry of the Environment for most of his career, serving in the high north, including periods of time spent in Mould Bay, Prince Patrick Island, North West Territories, and in Nitchequon, Quebec.  Many of his postings were accessible only by air.  Walter was an avid cyclist, photographer and traveller.  He was intellectually curious, technically savvy, and thrived in the outdoors.  He was a tremendous supporter of trail development in Caledon and Canada.  He was a key member of the team of local citizens and town officials who created the first Trans Canada Trail pavilion and pavilion park.  Walter was solitary by nature and comfortable with his own company, but he was also a stalwart presence at the village coffee circle and a valued friend in the community.  He is treasured and missed.

A graveside service will be held at Caledon East Public Cemetery, Airport Road, Caledon East on Monday, December 9 at one o’clock.

Reception to follow at Caledon Hills Fellowship Baptist Church, 16595 Airport Road, Caledon East.

Arrangements by Egan Funeral Home, Bolton (905-857-2213).

To all who knew Walter – he was a very special man and a special friend. Kind and supportive, always looking for how he could help, I enjoyed our talks and visits. His friends were his family and I know we will all miss him.

Wow, I am still in shock the we have all lost such a kind and caring person. His love for the outdoors and the environment taught me a lot over the years. I loved Walter’s stories of his experiences in the north. As we say good-bye, you will not be forgotten Walter.

I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Walter. Walter and I lived in a small town up North, called Ansonville (now Iroquois Falls), and spent our early childhood years playing in the snow. We kept in touch over the years sporatically. His work on the trails was amazing. R.I.P. Walter.
