  1. As a child growing up in Kingsville, Mr. Lethbridge was a pillar of our community. Standing guard on the corner of town, so tall, always in a suit shaking hands and waving hello to seemingly every person in town – who he greeted by name.
    As a teenager & young man I was lucky enough to be one of the many kids Walt & Mur treated like one of their own. They were ever present at our high school, cheering at every basketball game & applauding at every music concert.
    Walt was a good man and his legacy is his three children who grew to be wonderfully kind, loving and funny humans who have always made me smile & laugh . . . so THANK YOU WALT, rest forever in peace.
