Harley also leaves behind 6 siblings Lois, Rod (Terrilynne), Sharon, Jim (Linda), Barbara, (Rick) and Karen, his many nieces, nephews and numerous great nieces and great nephews. Aunts Thordis and Tini and many cousins and friends.
Harley was raised in White Rock and stayed to build a home and happily raise his family. His love of stock car racing won him many trophies. He had a sharp mind, a quick wit and loved having the last word. Growing up, Harley beat everyone at Monopoly, owning most of the board. This evolved to him becoming a successful Realtor owning White Rock Realty where he was known to be generous and giving to his agents and loved to entertain and had a ready hug for all. He willingly shared what he had and gave so much that was unknown to the recipients. He enjoyed great years and owned numerous properties but, the high interest of the 80’s were devastating for him and he experienced far too many losses and heart breaking tragedies that he found hard to overcome. He still enjoyed Real Estate sales but was happiest driving and being with a road construction crew until he retired.
Please join us to celebrate his life and share our memories on Sunday November 21, 2010 at 2 pm at the White Rock Legion, 2260 152 St, Surrey.
Harley will be laid to rest beside his daughter, Harlene, and our Dad at Victory Memorial Park Cemetery.
You will always be in our hearts Harley, Rest in Peace, Love your family
