Harry was a proud Ex Cadet (3433) Class of 55, of the Royal Military College of Kingston, Ontario, graduating as a chemical engineer from Queen’s University. He moved to Elmira accepting a job at Uniroyal Chemical, where he worked and managed the chemical division and was chief of the company fire dept. for over 34 years. He took pride in his community whether it was volunteering at Trinity United Church, West Montrose United Church, The Royal Canadian Legion, the Blood Donor Clinics, Chateau Gardens Retirement Home, or the Elmira Curling Club.
The family would like to thank the staff of Chartwell Retirement and Long Term Care for the love and support they gave Harry over the last many years.
At Harry’s request, cremation has taken place and there will be no funeral visitation. A graveside service for family and friends will take place at 2 p.m. on Friday, June 3, 2022 at St. James Lutheran Cemetery, Elmira (across from Harry and Gwen’s house).
Donations in Harry’s memory would be gratefully accepted to www.jack.org, Make-A-Wish Canada or the charity of your choice. Arrangements entrusted to the Dreisinger Funeral Home.
