Our Dad, Harley, passed away peacefully on January 30, 2021, at the age of 96. Dad was born in the Melfort area in 1924. His family moved to the Weldon district in 1936 where he attended Roosevelt School.
Dad loved to drive and earned his living by driving. His career included hauling fuel from Regina & Saskatoon to Weldon, & Kinistino, as well as delivering fuel to farmers in the area, for the Weldon Co-op. He also drove a school bus to Kinistino.
Dad lived in the Weldon community for 50 plus years. He skidded logs for the Weldon rink in the 1940s, owned and operated the Weldon café in the mid-1950s, as well as serving on the Credit Union and Weldon Housing Boards.
He knew everyone in the area and is remembered for his warm smile and dry sense of humour. Dad's early retirement years in Prince Albert were filled with travel, golf, and family. In his later years, while living in Birch Hills, when he was not playing solitaire while watching the weather channel, he could be found enjoying a coffee with friends and family entertaining them with stories of his life’s escapades.
Dad is survived by his four children: Janice (Doug), Les (Gayle), Lynn (Bill) & Donna (Ray), twelve grandchildren, twenty-three greatgrandchildren, one great greatgrandchild and two brothers Normand and Ed (Shirley).
Dad was predeceased by his older sister Beatrice, two sons Ray and Bert, father Louis, mother Dell, stepfather Carson, two brothers Larry and Wes and sister-in-law Elizabeth.
The family would like to thank all the staff at Birchview Care Home in Birch Hills, SK for going above and beyond while caring for our Dad.
