He obtained his first year schooling in Young, Saskatchewan, and his first half of grade 2 at Grasswood School. Walter completed his elementary education at East Bend, and went on to high school in Beatty, Saskatchewan, followed by technical school in Saskatoon. He worked in Saskatoon at John Eastman Iron Works, Saskatoon Public School Board, and TransCanada Airlines before returning home to the family farm.
