Dec 5, 1927 – August 8, 2015
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Bert, 87 – husband, father, Papa.
A life long resident of Dove Creek and Merville, Bert was an avid hunter and fisherman. He spent his working life in the woods. First for Comox Logging and Crown Zellerbach, and later had his own company – Bert Harris Logging. Bert had a great sense of humour and loved to travel; he made friends wherever he went.
Bert will be remembered by his family: his wife of 66 years, Ethel, and their 5 children – Nancy Emery (Norman), Pat Yakichuk (Ed), Rick Harris (Marilyn), Dianne Webber (Dennis), and Barb Nowicki (Todd), 12 grandchildren, 23 great grandchildren and 3 great-great grandchildren, his sister Margaret Hirschprung, and many cousins and nieces and nephews.
The family would like to express our gratitude to the wonderful staff at the Cumberland Lodge and the Comox Valley Senior’s Village for their excellent care.
Bring your tall tales and join us at a Celebration of Life at Merville Hall August 29, 2015 at 1:00 pm.
