Master Cpl Jeffrey Scott Walsh - August 8th 1973 - August 3rd, 2006

Jeff was not only a soldier, he was a father, son, brother, uncle, cousin and yes a friend to all. Jeff was born in Saskatchewan and he and his sister were our chosen children. Jeff excelled in the army getting his promotions ahead of time and he had his career mind set. One time he said to me "Dad I WILL get my Sergeants" just a couple of years after that Sargent Major.

He Loved Life, and more so he loved his family and the family gatherings with friends. Yes, We will miss him, but I love talking about him, he is OUR HERO, our Son, and will never forget you. He is now our angel looking out for other soldiers on mission and us at home.

Jeff and his spouse Julie had three beautiful children two girls Avrey (8) Jordan (5) in March and little Ben (3) Jeff was meticulous in everything he did if it had to be done it had to be done right.Jeff if he did not know how to do something he would phone a plumber or electrician and find out and read up on it the proper way . Jeff on his visits to our home in Regina he helped us with our projects.Jeff was in excellent physical shape as one of his passions was weight lighting which he started in grade 10 and continued on in his life. Jeff loved his cars and owned a 1977 Camero that he and friends fixed up.Jeff also got some tickets with his Camero and worked hard at McDonald's to pay these off.

Jeff loved spending time with Family and friends. Jeff loved going to his Uncle and Aunts farm Ken and Linda Mushkas near Yorkton, Sask. Jeff use to have deep conversations with his Uncle Ken on different subjects.Jeff loved his sister Jodi and liked to spend time with her and her family when he was home on leave. To this very day his friends come to visit us and we talk about Jeff his antic (ect) (lol) and we have heard stories some which we never heard before (lol) .Jeff has left a giant void in our lives; we miss him greatly and think of him every day. He brought such joy and laughter to everyone that knew him. We shall not forget him. -Ben and Margie Walsh, Regina SASK, Canada
