Roxy, Shelley, Wendi,
Rick, Stacy, Ken & Family
I am so sorry of the passing of your Dad, Harry.
He has been a part of my life almost my whole life.He was like a 2nd Dad to me. Me, most often known as his other daughter, Lynne.
I didn`t need a clothes allowance, a car, gas for the car, no arguments about the boyfriends that he wasn`t quite sure about.
In his eyes I`m sure I was the perfect daughter. I didn`t cost him a penny or add to his grey hair. He was a very special person to me and my family. I will always remember his bright and happy smile, that lit up any room. His singing voice that would appear out of the blue never out of key. His caring nature always helping someone in his
Looking for that ``Special Car Deal`` that you just couldn`t pass up, one of those car deals was purchased by me more than once. His special gifts of teddy bears & roses for his friends that always made their day. He had a wonderful life filled with love and happiness. I know he would not want us to grieve for him but remember those wonderful memories from the past that filled our lives with love and laughter. He will always hold a special
place in my heart.

I`m sure he`s already started his own
car dealership and will be waiting for
all of us with that special deal.
Love you all,
Lynne, Dene, James, Barry,
Kathleen, Matt, & Kali

I am so sorry to hear of your dad's passing, my children remember him with
a great fondness. We lived on Pine St. for many years and our children grew
up together. Ken and Shelley were the best of friends. I know it is a sad time
just remember the fun we had at cascades and moscrop schools. I always
had a houseful of kids, as your mom did. I am thinking of you all..
