Harry was a lifetime coastal truck logger, operating Cearley & Trotter Logging for 30 years. He was innovative and recognized for pioneering new logging equipment. He was proud to have served Canada in WW2. Recently he was acknowledged for his 50 year Mason and Shriner membership.
Harry always had a welcome smile, generous heart and long stories, his favourite sayings were “when you get a minute” or “give me a call in the spring before you hire out”.
