Anthony (Tony) Walthert

It is with great sorrow that we announce the peaceful passing of Anthony (Tony) Walthert on March 22, 2020 in Peterborough, ON. Tony was the loving husband of Marianne (Wey) and father to Henry (Monique), Tim (Lynda) and Linda (Michael). Grandfather to Matthew, Adam, Lindsay, Rachel, Alexandra and Daniella. Great grandfather to Ava, Michael, Luke and Kaylem. He was predeceased by daughter Barbara. After immigrating from Switzerland in 1951, he and Marianne settled in Orillia, Ontario for a few years before moving to Toronto and starting their bakery, Glen Stewart Pastries. When it came time to retire they moved to Peterborough, ON. Tony would never turn down an opportunity to go out fishing with his buddies. He also enjoyed going swimming and bowling and playing a game of cards with his local friends. A friend to many, Tony was always there to lend a hand no matter what the task or request. He will always be remembered for his big heart and generosity. Courageous throughout his lifetime, he faced his final illness with grace and determination. At Tony’s request no service will be held.

Sorry to hear about the passing of a good man, my uncle Tony.
Fond memories of a great baker and fisherman.
As a kid, couldn't wait for Uncle Tony to show up at my parents house with store leftovers. Luckily Calvin and I had different favorites, but still there was a mad rush to get what you could.
Unfortunately from moving down to Dallas Texas a long time ago, I haven't been around to attend the traditional May long weekend fishing event, which I hope all that attended will keep it going in Memory of Tony.
RIP uncle Tony.

When we moved to Ennismore in Dec 1995, our neighbours were Tony and Marianne Walthert, who graciously invited us into their home and welcomed us to the neighbourhood. I asked Tony if he found his steep driveway up the hill to his house difficult to climb, to which he replied with a laugh, "I'm from Switzerland", which said it all. We missed you after you moved into Peterborough, but were able to keep in touch for some years afterwards. We shall always retain fond memories of you both as our neighbours on the hill.

I have fond memories of golfing with Tony and my dad Hans. The two were almost like twins on the course, laughing about carding a “snowman” and congratulating each other on a good shot. If I close my eyes I can see them still kidding around and waiting their turn for the next tee.

We also spend many fun times sharing smiles over a game of cards, the Petersen family, mum Gertrud, dad Hans, Isabell and I, with Joy and Ted Voteary, Tony and Marianne. Those were special moments.

To Tony's family,
My family knew Tony in earlier years in Toronto through Ida and John Wey. My parents, Joe and Wilma Lehner immigrated from Switzerland as well back in the mid 50's. I have very fond memories of visiting Tony in the bakeshop - especially on Christmas Eve morning to pick up the very famous Ham baked in bread dough! It was oh so good I can still smell it today!

My deepest condolences to your family. May all of your fond memories of Tony bring a smile to your hearts.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

I met Linda on my very first day and in my very first class at Centennial College in September 1979. We became fast friends which meant within days I was spending time on Lawlor with her family. We were also regulars at their bakery and Mr. Walthert just laughed when I passed up cookies for a wee bowl of icing. The whole Walthert family were so kind and generous to me and my heartfelt condolences go out to them all at this very sad time.
