In Memoriam

An image of Walter Janzen.
Walter Janzen, BASc’78, MASc’88

Walter Frank Janzen: An engineer extraordinaire, handyman, and athletic legend – with a side of stubbornness. On July 5, 2020, God reclaimed one of his brightest. Walter faced his cancer battle with true grit.

Walter was a talented engineer. Solving problems was in his DNA. He obtained a BASc in engineering and later a MASc in structural engineering from UBC. Athletically, Walter excelled in track and field and had a passion for volleyball. He enjoyed life through travel, woodwork, science fiction, and classical music.

Walter had a strong work ethic and compassion for others. His spiritual connection with God allowed him to find peace, and for that we are forever grateful. Rest in peace our dearest husband, father, and friend. Donations can be made to Engineers Without Borders, MCC, or Union Gospel Mission.
