Walter H. Butler
The author grew up in rural Alberta, much of that time on ranches, including the family ranch owned by his father. He left ranching to become a pilot, and then attended university to become a civil engineer. As an engineer, he worked in the construction industry for 38 years on major construction projects all across Canada from the east coast to the west coast, and even the Arctic coast, and also in other countries such as the USA, South America, and China where he lived for three years. Retiring in 2008, he continues to pursue his interests, including aviation, music, doing projects for his daughters and grandchildren and, of course, writing. The author, along with his wife of 44 years, lives in Sherwood Park.
Watch for the launch of his book in October - Stories I Would Never Tell My Grandchildren - you will love Walt's writing style as he shares true life stories of growing up in Alberta.
