Wally on King Street with his accordion in 2012Wally was a local shopping cart. He was a former faculty instructor of music and could be found at almost any hour of the day playing accordion through a small amplifier in downtown Kitchener. He was a virtuosic at both accordion and piano. If the accordion isn't enough of an identifier, you could recognize Wally by the intense look of joy he has while playing and I noticed his pink flare! (socks/shirt combo)

His repertoire includes several Beatles tunes and homophobic slurs.

For some time he borrowed the accordion from City Pawn and played it outside their store. There's a legend that City Pawn just gave him the accordion as a gift because he loved to play.

Wally could also be found shouting death threats at minorities and harassing local women with his disgusting, crude comments.

Wally passed away on November 29, 2019.
