Beloved husband of Doreen (57 years) and father of Deborah (Ed Stasyk), Barry (Robert Hope) and Scott. Brother to Anna (deceased) and Kelly siblings Ellen, Alma, Leonard and Lorraine. Grandfather to Paul and Kimberley Francis and great-grandfather of six. Special uncle to Barry Bernardi and many other nieces and nephews. Born in PEI, he met and married Doreen in Toronto and together they forged a loving and inspiring partnership. A long-term employee of Ontario Hydro, he died of mesothelioma as a result of asbestos exposure. Harold was a devoted husband and father, a man of great integrity and strength.
