  4. Dear Cathy, We were very sorry to hear of Walter’s passing. Please accept our sincere condolences. He will be missed. Hugs, Wendy and Bob Mitchell

  5. My deepest condolences go out to the Biggar family. I was very young in my career at PCL when I met Walter and he was not only a great mentor to the younger generation but just an all around great guy. It was a sad day when he retired from PCL and even sadder that I will not have a chance to run into him again.

    Rest in Peace Walter

  6. I have many fond memories of Walter at PCL.

    Our condolences Cathy on Walter’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

  7. My condolences to Cathy and Walter’s family. I worked with Walter early on in my career and can’t thank him enough for all that he taught me!

  8. Cathy, please accept my deepest condolences in this difficult time. I had an opportunity to not just work with Walter over the years at PCL, but to learn from him as well. He was always very meticulous in everything he did, his dry wit and that devilish smile and his laugh will be missed. Knowing Walter he is on the “Fairway to Heaven” right about now.

  9. My sincere condolences to the Biggar family. I met Walter on the UE-1 project , he was very kind and helpful. May he rest in peace.

  10. Cathy, my deepest condolences to you and your family regarding the passing of Walter. I started at PCL Industrial in my younger days and was fortunate enough to work with Walter on various projects with respect to our testing program. His attention to detail and knowledge in our process stood out from the rest. He always took the time to explain what he was doing and why, and wasn’t afraid to let you know if you “weren’t getting it”.
    I will miss Walter. To know that he helped me out early in my career i am truly grateful.

    Take care,


  11. Hi Cathy, Just popping in to express our condolences. We’ve kept you and Walter in our prayers all summer. I know that your sister, Bob Bell and Bernie have been helping you through the very toughest times; thank goodness.
    We were lucky enough to see Walter on a Tuesday(LOB day) when he stopped in to say hello to all of us at the Garrison Memorial Golf Club( He was out shopping for your wine). We will all miss him. Take care of yourself and keep in touch.

    Jack and Wilma

  12. Rest in peace, Walter. It was awesome getting to work with you on the Kearl project. I learned a lot about hydrotest packages and I think you enjoyed poking us “young people” with your wit.
    My deepest condolences to the Biggar family.

  13. I’ll be thinking of you Aunt Cathy, and will always remember Uncle Walter.To me he was refreshingly witty, incredibly generous, and honestly true to himself. I enjoyed spending time with you both. He always encouraged me to be hard working and intelligent, and was supportive. I love him and you, and will miss him greatly. Love and hugs sincerely.
