Harold George (Harry) Sweitzer

October 24th, 1924 – July 2nd, 2016

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our father, grandfather, brother, uncle, nephew and friend, Harry. He will be missed by those he leaves behind: his children, Debra (Ken) of Oakville, Ontario, Dianne (Patrick) and Darrell (Val) of Nanaimo, B.C.; four grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; sister, Anne; brother, Elmer; aunt, Marg; sister-in-law, Doris; and numerous nieces, nephews and many friends. Harry was preceded in death by his wife, Dorothy; daughter, Wendy; son, Douglas; sister, Caroline and brother, Jacob who died in infancy.

Harold was a Sergeant in the Canadian Army during WWII who voluntarily served in the Active Service and was a long time member of the Army, Navy and Air Force Veterans Club – Spitfire Unit #5, Vernon, B.C.

In respecting Harry’s wishes, he was cremated and there will be no formal service held. As an expression of sympathy, those who wish to do so may send donations in memory of Harry to the charity of their choice.

Arrangements were made with Telford’s Cremation & Burial Centre in Nanaimo, B.C. and Bethel Funeral Chapel Ltd. in Vernon, B.C.
