Harold Marshall Gourley

25 March, 193522 March, 2021

It is with profound sadness that the family of Harold Marshall Gourley announce his sudden passing on March 22, 2021 at the age of 85.

He will be lovingly remembered by his children: Cliff, Glenn, Colleen, Mike; his daughters in law, Tracy, Laura and Nicole; his sons in law Gino & Paul as well as his 18 grandchildren that brightened his life every day. He will also be missed by his numerous relatives and friends in Ireland, Canada and Indian Rocks Beach where Marshall spent many a winter.

He was predeceased by his loving wife Mildred Gourley of 50 years and his daughter Dianne Moretti-Gourley.

Marshall was born in Northern Ireland (Belfast) and immigrated to Canada in 1959. He loved life and his family with a passion that will be remembered and sorely missed. He was an exceptional father, grandpa and golf player. He will be a role model for generations to come.

Due to the Covid pandemic the service will be restricted to immediate family only. The family will be organizing a celebration of life later in the year when it is safe to do so.

So sad to hear of the passing of Uncle Marshal. We have fond memories of when Marshal and Mildred came over to Ireland for our wedding in 1993 and then again when he stayed with us, was lovely to have him here. Our sympathies go out to you all. This lovely photo is from our wedding with my dad Derek in the middle and uncle David with Marshal.

Every family gathering that included Marshall was a chance to be delighted by his positive and jovial nature. Such a kind man whom we admired for his strength and who loved his family with an open heart.

My sincere condolences to the Gourley family on this tragic loss. Marshall was my workmate and friend of almost 50 years. He was a true friend, always did the best for those around him, told wonderful stories, never let life get him down and always carried his Belfast Spirit wherever he went. I miss him dearly, R.I.P.

Uncle Marshall, my favorite uncle! On weekend sleepovers I'd have so much fun hanging out with all my cousins. Uncle Marshall would pile 5, 6 or 7 of us into the K Car. If memory serves me right it was the 5 seater model? The good old days! Diane and I sat shotgun in the front, funny no one fought us for it. Diane let me in first and I got to sit closest to Uncle Marshall. I had no idea, it was a set up. Yep, Diane knew of the vice-like grip that would latch onto my knee as soon as the car got going. Trapped, I squirmed, yelled, pulled away but he had me. Jammed in like a sardine in a tin, I had to endure until we arrived at the pond and someone opened a door.

My uncle Marshall, so full of fun and love!
