Harry was rich in having many close friends from youth who affectionately referred to him as “The Hummer”. He served with the RCAF during the Korean War. He went on to work in the construction industry, including the creation of the Mica Dam. Harry was a longtime member who loved to socialize at The Royal Canadian Legion, the Fraternal Order of Eagles and The Army Navy & Air Force Veterans.

Upon Harry’s request there will be a private family gathering to celebrate his unique life. The family would like to thank the kind and caring staff of 3rd floor Gateby Care Centre.

As Hummer would always say…“Hummmmmmmmmmmm”
