HAROLD ROWE passed away in Raymond, Alberta, on February 1, 2020 at the age of 82 years.

Harold is predeceased by his loving wife Audrey, he is survived by his children Leland (Sherry Clarke), and their children Taylor (Caitlin), Keaton and Kendall; Mark (Cindee) and his children Jesse (Anita), Madison (Reece) and Brody; Roxanne and her children Kelly Rae (Steve) and Makenna; Kimberly (Ryan) Beck and their children Zach and Jack; also survived by great grandchildren, Ryder, Stevie, Koston and Tauriel.

Harold was born in Verdun, Quebec; he spent his early life skipping school to go fishing with his best friend, skating on the St. Lawrence and causing as much mischief as humanly possible. Harold moved to Alberta in the late 50’s where he eventually met the love of his life, Audrey. Harold worked proudly as a pipefitter for 38 years before retiring at the age of 55. Golf was Harold’s passion, it wasn’t uncommon for him to golf at least 2 or more rounds a day. Harold had many friends and it wasn’t uncommon for him to get stopped anywhere he went for a lengthy chat. Harold was a hardworking man who loved his family more than anything.

A Memorial Service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Friday February 7, 2020 at SALMON AND SONS FUNERAL HOME, 433 Stubb Ross Road South, Lethbridge with the interment to follow at Magrath Cemetery.
