He is lovingly remembered by wife of 56 years Susan, his three children Joanne (Derek) of Kamloops, Mary (Jill) and Ken (Laurie) all of Mission and his grandchildren Lee-Ann (Rob), Krysti (Kyle), David, Amber, Hallie and Kenzie.

Harry was predeceased by brothers Donald, Leslie, Fred and grandson Cory. Harry was born Nov. 17, 1927 in Rosedale, BC, to a farming family. Harry and his wife Susan farmed registered Ayrshire cattle in Mission on ‘Brookwyn Ayrshire Farms’, until eventually passing the farm to his son. A 4-H family, with all of the children involved, Harry was awarded a ’25 year 4-H Leadership Certificate’. He was a member of the Ayrshire Breeders Association of BC, a volunteer Fireman and a Director of the Dewdney Area Improvement District (DAID) for over 35 years. He was involved with the Mission Seniors Association and a 40 year member of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #58. He and Susan shared an amazing life together playing cards, attending social functions and loved travelling together, spending many winters in Yuma Arizona. Their many adventures together included Australia, Scotland, England, New Zealand, Africa and Hawaii. The family wishes to thanks Dr. P Patel and the staff at Mission Memorial Hospital for their excellent care of Harry. A Celebration of Harry’s life will be held on Friday October 24th 2014, 11:00am, in the St. Andrew’s United Church, 7756 Grand St. in Mission with Reverend Tim Bowman officiating.
