Obituary of Edgar Harris

Passed away peacefully on Sunday, November 4, 2018 at the Port Colborne Hospital at the age of 80.

Predeceased by his wife Millie, parents George and Martha, sisters Cedella (Ralph) Hardy and Lorraine James and brother in law Mark Janes.

Loving father of Bill (Suzanne) O’Halloran, step father of Wendy (Chris) Alek and Gary Warren. Much loved Papa of Riley and Gavin Warren. Also left to mourn is his brother Melvin (Barbara) Harris, sister Thelma Janes, brother in law Wallace James and his nephew Kevin Hardy, who was always thought of as a brother.

Edgar leaves behind a large circle of nieces, nephews, family and friends. He enjoyed a very rewarding career in the marine industry as a Chief Engineer on the Great Lakes for many years and retired as an Engineer Superintendent from Algoma Central Corporation in 2003. During that time, he made many friends along the way and maintained those friendships to the end. Edgar will always be remembered for his wonderful sense of humour, his kind heart and his genuine love for life. Family and friends were the spice of life for Edgar, next to hunting and fishing.

In keeping with his wishes, cremation has taken place.

Edgar’s family will receive friends at the ARMSTRONG FUNERAL HOME & CHAPEL, 179 Clarence Street, Port Colborne on Wednesday, November 7, 2018 from 2-4 p.m. and 6-8 p.m. A Memorial Service will take place on Thursday, November 8, 2018 in the Armstrong Chapel at 3 p.m.
