Walter  Edmister


Walter Henry Edmister passed peacefully, at home, on Tuesday, January 1, 2019, surrounded by his family.
He enjoyed playing cards, car shows, telling jokes, riding his tractor and spending time with his family and friends.
After a lifetime of working in construction as a contractor and helping others in his community, he never stopped finding ways to help and pass on his knowledge.
He is survived by his wife, Joanne Edmister; his children: Robin Tagg, Christina Virgilio (husband Frank), Tracy Stephens (husband Donald), Stephanie AlNuaimi (husband Manar), Nichole Edmister, Waylon Edmister (wife Brandi), Joleen Meland (husband Brian), Krystal Mead, Jonathan Edmister, Courtney Edmister and his many grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.
There will be no formal service, as he has donated his body to research at UB School of Medicine. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to hospice.
