Wallace Kenneth Munro age 59 passed away suddenly on Tuesday, January 30th 2018 at his home in Pine Creek, Manitoba. He was born on September 10th 1958 in Swan River, Manitoba to Mary Elizabeth (Nepinak) & Douglas Joseph Munro. Wally attended school in Duck Bay, MB where he always enjoyed interacting with his friends & teachers. He was always involved in a wide range of sporting activities. Later in his younger years his family relocated to Leaf Rapids, MB to become employed with Sherritt Gordon Mines, where Wally himself became a rock wagon truck operator.

Then later on in life he was once again blessed with another son Kirk Genaille, in which he was always grateful to be part of his life. Wally was well known throughout his life for being there as the guy who would give you the shirt off his back and was always there when one of his family or friends needed him.
