Dec. 2, 1951 – May 4, 2013

Walter Pinack of Ucluelet, B.C. died in hospital in Victoria May 4, after an extended illness.

He is pre-deceased by his parents William and Agnes (nee Quain).

Walter is survived by his siblings Anna (Gino), Billy (Brenda), Rick and Michael; several nieces and nephews and many good friends.

Walter led a colourful life of travel and experiences that made him friends around the world. He was well-known in Ucluelet for his firework displays.

Prior to winning the lottery in 2001, Walter was a painter and a mill worker. Walter was a very generous man, sharing the proceeds of his lottery winnings with family, friends and those in need.

Walter has now joined his best friend, his border collie Shadow, who was a true and faithful companion.

A gathering of friends will be held at a later date in Ucluelet.
