A genuine and colorful person in any conversation that he was engaged. Rest in peace. My sympathies to Mireille, your family and all those who will miss him here in St. Lambert both in the wider community and the community garden where he started a most interesting garden and planted special flowers for his life partner last summer. It was a beautiful and touching story.

A loyal friend of his alma mater, McGill law class of '65, always actively present at our reunions every fifth year, we will miss him but salute him in 2020 as we now salute him as a classmate well liked and well respected. Our sympathy to the Harris family. John O'Connor

My Brother, John Hood Shortreed, sent me the message of the passing of Ian Harris along with some details of his connection to the Shortreed family. Such a large, but friendly, family that unfortunately Ian and I never met. Our condolences to Ian's family. We live so close, hopefully some day we shall meet.
