Jean, we are so very sorry to learn of the loss of your brother, Harley! Please pass on our condolences to Harley's children, and their families. We enjoyed our visits with him the last number of years, while being cared for at Tatagwa, and his face always lit up when we mentioned your name, Jean, and we know you will miss your big brother! Tyler Jay sends his condolences and love to you and the girls.♥️

Loved my big burley uncle, his big heart, that deep voice, and of course that “bellow-ful” laugh of his. Despite his great size and appearance a mere baby would melt that big guy! I Always felt welcome in his home and in his presence. I remember him best on the old farm outside of midale with that little pink truck of his. I think he called it the “gitty-up go” , or something like that .
Harley was quite fond of teasing his nieces and nephews. He was also always first in line for a good prank-especially if he could get away with it! (Or even if he couldn’t...).
Harley will be sadly missed-yet remembered warmly. Hope he has found peace with family.

Harley will be greatly missed by his entire family. He has definitely left his mark on all of us. Wish we all had more time with him. We are really glad Connor had the opportunity to meet his great grandpa, you can see the Ironside resemblance.
