Mr. Harold Richard Coombs, 94, of Bayfield Ontario passed away peacefully on Friday, March 13, 2020. Harold is survived by his loving wife: Elsie of 64 years; children: Richard and Pamela (Chris) Bowers; grandchildren: Sarah (Devon), Adam, Nicole (Garmamie) and Robyn (Jesse) and 5 loving great grandchildren.

 

Harold immigrated from Upper Island Cove Newfoundland to Canada in 1947, at the age of 21. He worked on tugboats in New Brunswick before settling in Ontario, where he worked on countless construction sites. In his retirement, he moved to the small village of Bayfield on Lake Huron. He enjoyed may euchre games and volunteering with the Lion’s Club and St. Andrew’s Anglican Church.

 

Harold enjoyed more trips to his birthplace than all others combined. He was a true Newfoundlander and will make one more trip home to his final resting place.

 

The Funeral Service will be held at St. Peter’s Anglican Church & Cemetery at a future date.
