He leaves behind his wife Dolores, son Ronald (Cheryl), daughter Judy (John), step-daughters; Joanne (Mark) Washington and Mona (Craig) Dolan and 7 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren. Harold was born in Hatzic Prairie and raised at the “ranch”, he spent much of his life living and working in Maple Ridge where he met his first wife “Lena”. Lena pre-deceased Harold in 1982. They were owners of Maple Ridge Fuels for many years until Harold sold the business, worked for BC Parks, BC Liquor Store and then finished his working years with the maintenance department at Riverview Hospital. In 1983, Harold married Dolores, they moved to Westbank and spent the next 27 years living on the lake in a beautiful setting. Harold’s last three months were spent living at Legion House in Maple Ridge, a place where he found comfort and friendship. He had many good visits with his family and friends during his short stay at Legion House. We would like to thank all the people that helped Harold get through his final months. A celebration of life gathering will be organized at a later date.
