Henry (Harry) passed away peacefully in the early hours of Monday, July 6, 2020 at Credit Valley Hospital in Mississauga at the age of 86.
Beloved husband of 60 years to Rose (2018) and a proud and loving father to Lynn (1994) and Karen, he is fondly remembered by his large extended family and friends in Canada, the U.K. and elsewhere who all held a special place in his heart. Born in Billingham, England and raised in Glasgow, Scotland, he had made Canada his home for over 47 years and was a long-standing member of The Irish Club of Mississauga and the Bramalea Celtic Supporters Club.
He had a sharp sense of humour and was well-known for doodling cartoons and for ‘improving’ magazine pictures by inserting a cropped photo of his own face instead, along with DIY skills that would impress MacGyver. He will be dearly missed, but the often-told stories and tall tales will always bring a smile and keep him close.
We would also like to thank everyone at V!VA Mississauga who kept an eye on him, tried in vain to get him to eat vegetables, and laughed at his jokes these past 10 months.
A private memorial will be held at a later date when he rests with Rose and Lynn once again. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the charity of your choice would be appreciated.
