Obituary for Walter John Rideout

RIDEOUT, Walter John
Passed away in his Mount Albert apartment on March 29, 2022.
He was born in Harbour Mille, Newfoundland to wonderful parents Alma and Walter. He was the youngest child and only boy of 6 kids, with 5 older sisters. According to stories I’ve heard since his death, he enjoyed getting into lots of mischief with his childhood friends.
He married in Petit De Grat, Nova Scotia and has 4 grown children, 5 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren.
He worked on the water most of his adult life. He still talked about all his fishing buddies right up until his death.
Special thanks to the tenants of his apartment building at 40 Royal Oak Rd., Mount Albert, who cared for him and treated him like family. He appreciated every kindness.
Visitation will be held at Roadhouse & Rose Funeral Home, 157 Main Street South, Newmarket on Saturday, April 16, 2022 from 9:30 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. followed by a memorial service at 10:00 a.m. in the chapel.
After the service a reception will be offered at his apartment building at 40 Royal Oak Rd, Mt. Albert.
Thanks to all who played a part in his life’s journey.
