aka “Cowboy” and/or “1/2 Way Harry”
April 24, 1941 – April 7, 2013
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear dad and husband.He passed peacefully and quickly at mom’s place with mom by his side.
Dad was born in Bonnyville, Alta, he came with his family to Terrace in 1943. He met mom in 1960, they were married in 1961 and continued to live in Terrace. They had two children – Douglas Dale (Pam) and Robert Lee (Laurie), two granddaughters and one great granddaughter.
Dad worked at too many places to mention, all logging and driving truck. His last 25 years was spent driving truck for Eurocan.
He is best known for and will always be remembered for his “Music”. He loved his guitar and to makeup songs. He would meet someone, think about it and make up a song for/about that person. Some of his songs were definitely “Logger Style”
To honor and respect dad’s wishes, no service will be held, a “Celebration of Life” will be held at a later date. We are trying for July 27, 2013 at Lakelse River Bridge? (A notice will be in the newspaper to inform).
He was blessed with many great friends. We would like you to celebrate his life anyway you wish – We all have many happy memories – We want to sincerely thank all of you, family and friends who helped support us through this difficult time. He will be missed and fondly remembered by so many – Thank You All!
Not only do we miss him, but his little dog “Trucker” misses him so much, we will all miss seeing them driving around together.
For those of you interested, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Thornhill and/or Terrace Animal Shelter.
Sad are the hearts that have you
Sad are the tears that fall
But living our lives without you
Is the sadest part of all.
