loved the outdoors and enjoyed fishing, hunting, or just traveling
through the woods on his 4-wheeler. Because of medical conditions,
Harold was taken out of the workforce at a younger age and not able to
do all the activities that he enjoyed so much. He was a volunteer fire
fighter for 25 years and then an honorary member of the Italy Cross,

Care to purchase an item in Harold’s Memory. There
are no words to describe how much we appreciated Dr. Heather
Robertson’s devotion. She made this journey easier for
Harold and his family. When she cared for Harold she related to him as
her friend. I believe Harold saw her as a friend, his family considers
her a friend, and will never forget how she comforted us. Special
thanks to the nursing staff of Med/Surg. At SSRH who cared for Harold
with compassion. Also, many thanks to Dietary, Environmental, and all
other staff whom took the time to peek in Harolds room to say
“Hello”. These special people helped Harold feel at
home. On-line condolences may be made by visiting www.corkumfuneralhome.ca
