Harold passed away August 23, 2021 at the age of 68.
Predeceased by his parents Erich and Maria.
Harold will be deeply missed by his wife Lana of 42 years of marriage. Children Tanya (Andy) and Chris (Brittany); Grandchildren Marcus, Liam, Maisie, Parker and Blake; Sister Heidi (Rick) and many friends.
Harold came to Canada from Germany when he was 3 years old. They moved to the Valley where his father found work in the Somass mill. As a young man, Harold spent most of his free time fishing in Cherry and Kitsuksis creeks for Steelhead.
He was a respected lifelong member of the Alberni Fish and Game club. He was a very accomplished trap, skeet and rifle shooter. Later in life he took up archery where he excelled quickly as he did everything he set his mind to. Harold loved to fish lakes, rivers and the ocean. If there was a fish to be caught he would find a way to land it!
Harold worked as a heavy duty mechanic for M&B and Weyerhauser, at Cameron, Franklin and Sarita shops. He enjoyed playing soccer and ball. Harold enjoyed visiting various friends, always checking they were okay or to lend a hand. He loved sharing stories, exchanging the latest hunting and fishing trips or just learning new things.
Our world will not be the same without our husband, father, Opa and brother.
