Walter (Wally) Steven Whynot, 48, of Gull Island lost his very short but courageous fight with Cancer on May 31, 2017 in Queens General Hospital with his devoted family by his side and the love of his life in his arms.
Wally was born on July 1, 1968 in Liverpool to St. Clair & Janet (Freeman) Whynot.
Wally worked with the Chronicle Herald for 13 years doing deliveries. Wally loved his job but loved the people he got to meet and talk to everyday more. Wally had a love for hunting, fishing, four wheeling & just being in the woods and outdoors. But most of all he loved spending all of his time with his family & friends. Wally had a rough exterior but had a heart of gold. Wally was well known for lending a helping hand to anyone that needed it and for having the “gift to gab” to everyone he met up with.
Wally is survived by his loving wife Terra-Anne (Gibson), daughters Kayleigh Dawn (at home), Kelsie Rose Keans (Ottawa) and Gabe Steven (at home). Siblings Joseph (Patty) of Middlewood, Corina (Willis) Huphman of Mersey Point and Tanya (James) Grant of Milton, Father in law Michael Gibson Senior, brother in law Michael Gibson Jr. Liverpool.

Don’t grieve for me, for now I am free
I turned my back and left you all.
I could not stay another day, To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way, I’ve found that peace at the end of the day.
If my parting has left a void, Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, Ah, yes, these things I will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow, I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My Life’s been full, I savoured much, Good friends, good times, my loved one’ touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief, Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart because now I am free.
