Walter N. Aberegg, Jr.
November 28, 1942 ~ November 11, 2023 (age 80) 80 Years Old
Walter N. Aberegg, Jr., a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, passed away peacefully on November 11, 2023, in South Bend, IN. Born on November 28, 1942, in Youngstown, OH, to the late Walter Sr. and Elizabeth (Hedley) Aberegg, Walter was a pillar of strength and courage to his family and friends.
Walter was a dedicated family man, marrying his sweetheart, Sandra (Fish) Aberegg, on February 3, 1966, in South Bend. Their story spanned over five decades, and together they raised a beautiful family. Their children, Wanda (Shawn) Henderson, Walter (Cynthia) Aberegg, William Aberegg, Wannetta (Robert) Probst, Wendalyn Aberegg, Whittney (Brandon) Bumbalough, Wayne (Mary Courtney) Aberegg, Wade (Vanessa Bope) Aberegg, and Wylinda (Alex) Wheat, were the center of Walter's world. He was also blessed with 20 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren, who brought him immense joy. Walter was predeceased by his son, Joseph William Aberegg, and his siblings, Marjorie Dillon and Michael Long.
Walter was a hardworking man, retiring from Steel Warehouse after 20 years of dedicated service. He always stood up for what he believed in, and his courage was an inspiration to all who knew him.
In his free time, Walter enjoyed tinkering on cars, listening to Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley, and watching movies. He also loved traveling to Traverse City, MI, with his bride, in his younger years. His favorite time of the year was when the leaves would turn.
Walter had a fighting spirit, which he maintained until the very end. Walter's life was a testament to his courage and dedication. He was a man who put his family first, always ensuring they were cared for and loved. His memory will live on in the hearts of his wife, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, who will remember him as a loving, and courageous family man.
A graveside service will be held at 2:30 p.m. on Friday, November 17, 2023, at Southlawn Cemetery, 61300 U.S. 31 South, South Bend, IN.
