September 14, 1936 – February 20, 2009
It is with great sorrow and sadness that we announce that Harry passed away peacefully at Glacier View Lodge on Friday, February 20, 2009. Harry was born in Salmon Arm on September 14, 1936. He was predeceased by his parents, Harry and Rose Farmer. He is survived by his loving and devoted wife, Diane of whom he was married to for over 48 years. He is also survived by his 4 children: Rona Doucette (Wayne), Harry Farmer Jr. (Dawn), Debbie Walker (Buzz) and Pat Farmer (Shannon). He is also survived by 10 grandchildren who were his pride and joy; Clayton Doucette (Stefani), Cole Doucette, Jordan Doucette, Kyle Doucette, Jenna Walker (Bryan), Dakota Walker, Spencer Walker, Morgan Walker, Nichelle Farmer and Nicholas Farmer and their mother, Teri Ellison. Harry retired in August 1997 after working for Canfor for over 40 years in the Nimpkish Valley where he resided in Nimpkish and Woss. Harry and Diane moved to the Comox Valley in 1998 where he enjoyed the rest of his retirement years doing what he loved best – gardening and enjoying their dogs, Captain, Leo and Katie.
