Unexpectedly but peacefully, at Queensway in Hensall, the hands on Harry’s clocked stopped turning at the age of 95. Beloved husband of the late Donna (MacEwen) Smith (2009). Proud father of Jerry and Joanne Smith. Loving grandpa of Sam (Dylan) Frost, Brandon (Leigh) Dayman, Trevor Mawson, and Michael (Jesse) Mawson and great-grandpa of William, and Georgia Dayman, and the late Jude Frost. Predeceased by his parents Orville and Lillian (Broderick) Smith, and his siblings Jack and Beth Smith, Norma and Don Cooper, and Helen Smith.
Harry was a long-time farmer. He purchased the farm on London Road in 1954 and lived there right up until a few months before his passing. He always enjoyed livestock around the farm, but mainly his ponies and chickens. He would travel the country roads any day of the week, as long as he was home at night to sleep in his own bed. He will be remembered for his quick wit, one liners, and his notorious history of needing a tire on his vehicle changed.
