Frederick Neal Harwood

September 16, 1937July 7, 2020

Born in Windsor on September 16, 1937. Passed away July 7, 2020. Great Grandson of Frederick Neal (1934) of Sandwich, Ontario. Grandson of Robert Trail Gray Sr. (1955) of Chatham, Ontario. Son of Neal Harwood (1968) and Jean Harwood (Nee Gray) of Windsor, Ontario. My life would not have been as fulfilling if not for the love, friendship and support given to me by my wife Diana (Nee Nicholson). In so many ways over so many years sharing our lives and our families. We had the good fortune to have a daughter, Samantha. She rewarded us with the love, success and marriage with Robert Baxter. If I thought having a daughter was a special event, having two grandchildren, Katherine (Kate) Ila Diana Baxter and Robert (Bob) Gordon Neal Baxter was the ultimate of the joy and love that life can give to their “Old Pal”. To my family and friends, and you know who you are! You call me: Rick, Woody, Bird, Mr. Rick. Thanks for your friendship, thanks for the laughter. I would like to pass on to you the best advice about golf and life that was given to me by my grandfather R.T. Gray Sr. “Keep your head down, swing slow, and follow through”. A Private family service has taken place followed by cremation. Interment of ashes will take place at St John’s Anglican Church Cemetery, Sandwich, Ontario.

My Prayers are with your family. And, although years have slipped away, my memories are very positive. I did. enjoy his subtle sense of humour, at Chrysler. Blessings and Peace be with you all.

I enjoyed collecting money for charities at your house Rick. You always had a few jokes or tales to tell. Rest in Peace Rick and my deepest sympathies Diana. We've missed having you in Lakeshore Park

Diana & family - although I had not seen him in any years I will always cherish his love of life, advice and friendship given to me. It was a distinct honour to work with him on the Leamington Golf Course (Erie Shores) 75th anniversary book. Keep all the good memories of him alive and if God is willing I will dedicate the 100th anniversary edition solely to him.
