Walter was born in Gornje Prekrižje, Croatia on July 13, 1933. Predeceased by his parents Nikola & Jela Vlašić and in-laws Peter & Milka Habjan. Dearest brother of Slavica (Miro), Mijo (Pavica), Vilka (Kreso), Nada (Dragan), Sister Nives (Andjelka), Zlata (Andrija), Ivica (Barica), Ruzica (Miki), Ljubica (Ivica) all in Croatia and Dragica (John) Mlinarić and Family of Oakville.

Dear Mrs Vlasic
Peter Sylvia Marco and Matteo
and the Vlasic families.
Frank and I came today to pay our respects in the loss of your husband father and grandfather. Unfortunately when we arrived the line was out the door. It was very difficult for us to make the decision to leave because we did have other commitments. That line that extended out that door only showed us how very loved and highly respected Mr Vlasic truly was. May his legacy live on within his children and grandchildren. We know that this is already true. Our apologies that we didn’t actually see you but our deepest condolences go out to you all.
Love Frank Josie Francesca and Joey Brucxoleri xo
