CANNINGS, Walter Alexander  - 

July 30, 1938  -  June 4, 2023


The community has lost one of the good guys .


Walter Alexander Cannings, better known as Al, was born on July 30, 1938 in Toronto to the late Walter and Nellie Cannings.

Alex was predeceased by his first wife Sandy and survived by his sister Eileen.


Love entered his heart again later in life when he went on a blind date and fell madly in love with Louise whom he married and remained with until his death.


In total their union included Al’s son Paul (Bonnie), daughter Joanne (Gordon), two step children, Leanne (Gary) and Gord (Lesley), 13 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren.  There was always a lot of love to go around.

He was a steamfitter by trade, spending 48 years enjoying his craft in various locations ending his career at General Motors.

Al passed away peacefully in his home in the wee hours of the morning on June 4, 2023 with his loving family by his side. Cancer is an unforgiving beast.

Special thanks go out to the doctors and nurses on the second floor of Lakeridge Health and to Morris Funeral Home in Bowmanville for all the care they provided.

Celebration of Life at a later date.
