So sorry to hear of the passing of Harold.
Our thoughts are with the family at this time.
Harold was a great neighbour and still came to visit us often after he moved into town.
He talked a lot about missing his wife. He will finally be with her again.

Harold was one of the all time greats at M.S.S. Who helped get the Tec.
program off the ground in 1969. Harold had that wonderful ability to
keep things rolling in the staff room. He found the humor in every
thing. Definitely an M.S.S. Hall of Famer. Thoughts and prayers are
with Harold Jr., Cathy ,all the grandchildren,brothers and sisters.

So sorry to hear of Harold's passing.  He was a wonderful neighbour to us.  When we were building our cottage next door, we really appreciated his generosity in supplying us with hydro & water.  We will really miss seeing him driving down the road almost every day.  And he would always stop for a chat.
Condolences to all his family.

Dear Kathy and Harold,
We're so sorry to hear of your dad's passing! We have many fond memories of Uncle Harold or as our son used to call him, Uncle Farold. At Christmas he would sing " Uncle Farold Angels sing" instead of "Hark the Harold Angels". We haven't seen him for a number of years, but have kept in touch via facebook, were we were just chatting before Christmas remembering my mom's passing 6 years ago. We just want you to know that our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Sorry, we aren't able to make the funeral, but will try to come to the burial in the Spring if that suits you. love, Barb, Brian, Lucas and Elliot

Hi Kathy, Harold and families,

We are sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. He was a kind man and I remember him most in the early days when we visited your family on the island. He was always a dotting husband to his dear Carol, which made an impact on me as a child. Also, he was a caring brother towards my mom, Fran. Unfortunately we will not be able to attend the funeral, but hope to be there for the burial in the spring. As a family, we send our thoughts and prayers to you all. with love, Irwin, Joanne, and family
