O'GRADY, Dr. Walter
Walter died at home of prostate cancer on April 30th, 2003. His love and humour will be sadly missed by wife Jean, daughters Elizabeth, Jennifer and Carrie, sons-in-law Jonathan KEAN and Steven PROBST, grand_son Zachary, sister Patricia DAY and husband Harry, brother Paul and wife Frances, mother-in-law Floss REILLY and all his loving extended family. Born in Hamilton in 1933 and educated at St. Michael's College, Walter held a variety of jobs in Hamilton and Southern Ontario before returning to graduate school in Toronto. Thereafter he was a professor of English at the University of Toronto, serving as assistant chair of the English department for nine years, and becoming known both for his stimulating lectures and for his aplomb in managing a large and turbulent department. The family extends thanks to the palliative care team, nurses, and personal support workers who helped to ease his difficult last months. As Walter is donating his body to medical science there will be no funeral, but Friends may call at 487 Briar Hill Avenue, Toronto, on Sunday May 4th from 3 to 5 p.m. The Department of English will arrange a gathering later. Donations in Walter's name to a charity of your choice would be appreciated in lieu of flowers.
