Harry was truly a one of a kind individual. He had a zest for life with a unique sense of humour. He loved his “sayings”. We will miss his “Harryisms”.
He was a generous, loving man to his family. He made an impression on everyone who met him.
Harry made his mark as the owner of Bluebell Grocery on Logan and Keewatin. He worked seven days a week with a 12 hour day being a short day. Annette worked by his side for many of those hours. He sacrificed in the early years to reap the benefits later in life with his family.
Harry and Annette literally travelled the world from Alaska to Australia and all places in between. Hawaii was his favourite probably going 40+ times. He often said Aloha more than hello or goodbye.
Harry had many loving nicknames. His sisters and brother referred to him as Osh, his customers as Mr. Bluebell. His grandchildren as Zaida, a role he excelled at.
All of his family often referred to him as Happy Harry for his easygoing outlook.
He will be sorely missed by his family and all those who knew him.
May He Rest In Peace And
May His Memory Be Blessed.
