I was so sorry to hear of Harold’s passing. He was one of the kindest and most generous men I have ever met. I still remember keenly and fondly the wonderful times I had in his company. Although its been almost 40 years and whether it was a dinner in their family home in Red Deer or an NHL game here in Vancouver or in Edmonton during the Gretzky years, he was an absolute joy to be with. My heart goes out to Jeanette and his whole family. He truly was the best of the best.

Debbie Bryant

It is so surreal to have a loved one pass without notice. My prayers are with you all. Having only met Herold a few times, he was always in bright spirits. Their big move to Edmonton was a large task, but a good decision was made to be closer to more of the family. I’m thinking of you, Janette. Condolences to all of the families. RIP. Herald. Debbie and families.

Dear Jeanette. Tracey and I send our sincere condolences on the passing of Herald. We remember him fondly. With love. ❤️


Dad was a kind and gentle man with the biggest heart. He always gave off himself however he could. At the lake. Boat rides. At the hockey arena. He loved his grandkids and encouraged them to do their best. He loved to serve and help people. He had a true giving and loving spirit. I will miss him greatly.

Jim Robertson

I remember when Harold took me to his grandson Ray’s hockey game. I thought it was great that he supported Ray’s hockey. He was so friendly and such a positive guy.


I didn’t know Harold well but on the occasions that we chatted he was always welcoming, friendly and smiling. Those types of interactions are cherished nowadays. My thoughts are with everyone who are saddened by the loss of this caring man.

Margie Stinton

I remember Harold as a very friendly kind welcoming man who had a wonderful smile when he greeted you. Jeanette, I know you will miss him dearly as will Bev & Darrel and their family, he was a good man. Blessings to all of you.


Gramps gave us kids such an amazing life. He truly did everything he could to ensure we could experience soo many things. Memories at pine lake I will forever cherish. Playing cards with him, making him do donuts with the boat. Gramps would even drive hours and hours to watch me dance. Taught me how to caddy, I nearly crashed the cart. Through and through he had the biggest heart ever and gave so much love.
He left us too soon and I will miss him immensely.
I love you Grandpa.

Grampa always did what he could to ensure us grandkids had every advantage in life. My fondest memories are going boating and golfing at Pine Lake with him. Whether it was tubing, kneeboarding, wakeboarding, snowboarding, golfing or hockey he was always ready to take us out with no hesitation. He will be sorely missed.
