He served on the Board of Directors at the German Canadian Club and he and Sharon spent 16 years dancing on ‘date night’ and bartending together.

Book of Condolences

Judy/John TeatherDear Sharon and family We are saddened and send our most loving sympathy with the loss of Harry. Please know that we hold special memories of our friendship with you both for over 25 years. The laughter, the card games, the special trips and the many events we shared will always be precious in our hearts of You both. Sharon, we hope you will be comforted in this time of terrible loss, that Harry loved You, even saying that his favourite flower was Rose of Sharon. You had so many wonderful trips around this globe that most of us can only dream of. Harry was proud of the family and like any parent, shared many stories with friends of 'the kids'. John and Harry were friends for so many years that it only seemed fitting that we shared the 'in law' moniker. Katie, Lynda, Darren, Ryan and Laurie--how he loved you all and was proud of the GrandChildren and then extended that to the Great "GrandKids" . Of course, 'Once a Royal-always a Royal" and he and John had so many special memories of those shared days as well. We shared such good times and yes, the sad times as well. Our wishes for You and the family Sharon, is Peace, and Love. May you hold him in your heart with love as he held all of you in his. Love John and JudyS
