RIEDLE, WALTER HARRY - Walt died unexpectedly on July 12 at the Saint John Regional Hospital surrounded by his family. Born in Sussex on June 20, 1946 he was predeceased by his parents Harry and Rena Riedle as well as his sister Marion and brother Emerson. Walt was married to Connie (Proctor), the love of his life, for 42 years and was like a big brother to her family. Together, they raised two boys Derek (Terri) of Saint John and Peter (Angela) of Rathdrum Ireland. Walt treasured his grandchildren Derek’s boys Jack and Peter and Peter’s daughter Isabel. He was thrilled with Peter’s news of twin grandsons expected this fall. He spent the bulk of his career with Christie Brown which took him to various cities around the country. Since retiring back to Sussex in 2001 he had been active with the Lions Club, Sussex Golf Club and the Royal District Planning Commission. Walt was a wicked pool shot and loved merging his two favourite hobbies, beer and golf – but he’d often just skip the golf. He loved a good joke, was quick to smile and really cared about everyone around him. He was a friend to everyone no matter how long he knew you. His spirit lives on in the memories and many stories of his treasured friends. He will be missed.
Arrangements are entrusted to Wallace Funeral Home, Sussex, where visitation will take place Saturday from 1-3 PM and 6-8 PM. Service will be held Sunday at 11 AM from the Wallace Community Chapel. Donations in lieu of flowers should be directed to the Sussex Health Centre.
