Obituary

Obituary for Harold Michael Slegers

With sadness, we announce that Harold passed away accidently at Pelicanpouch Lake, Ontario.

Harold is survived by his wife Susan, daughter Lauren, mother Wilhelmina (Mensing), sisters Mary-Anne and Caroline (Trevis Boyd), and brother Reg, along with nieces, nephews, in-laws and many friends & colleagues.

Harold was a gifted Mechanic. There wasn’t anything motorized that he couldn’t fix. Taking good care of all his vehicles and toys was very important to him.

Harold’s main career was with Air Canada Maintenance. After leaving Air Canada, he was very proud of the fact that he was able to start a new career in HVAC and become a “50-year-old Apprentice” and then a Red Seal HVAC Journeyman.

In 2003, Harold and Susan bought property at Pelicanpouch Lake. Harold had to learn some new skills because not everything is mechanical. Together with Susan and Lauren, they built a beautiful cabin, a true “off-the-grid” retreat. This was the place that Harold loved to be the most, especially when he was there with his girls, Susan and Lauren.

Harold was proud of the work that he did and the accomplishments of his family, especially those of his daughter Lauren. He will be missed by many and the stories of his adventures will be shared for a long time to come.

We would like to thank the Kenora Division of the OPP for their thorough search in November and to the HEART Team who were able to recover Harold.

Harold was the best of neighbors. Many was the time I would come home from an extended trip to find the snow on my driveway cleared or my lawn cut. He helped out in many ways, from installing our air conditioner to looking out for our house when the power line was knocked out when we were on vacation. He was indeed a gifted fixer of anything mechanical, and was the type of man who had the courage to re-invent himself more than once.
His love for OV was legendary and we shared many a libation on our porch at the end of the day. As has been mentioned a number of times, while on our porch, he often professed his love for family, especially his two girls, with a glisten in his eye. I will miss his greeting of "Howdy Neighbor!" as he walked across with a cold one.
Cheers Harold.
Sandy

We were so sorry when we heard about this terrible accident. Harold was such a remarkable person. He was always willing to help. We did some snowmobile tours with him and if you got in some kind of trouble Harold was the guy you want to have in your group. When we were driving over to Jimmys and Trudies cottage at longpine lake my wife was always afraid to drive up the very steep path to their home. Harold knew this and everytime he saw us coming he came running down the hill and drove my wifes sled up the hill. Of course he would drive it down when we were leaving. That's why Astrid called him my "valet parking friend". That's how he was. But he had another funny side too. I remember one time he explaint to me,with a serious face,that a sixpacks in both of my saddlebags would increase the handling of my sled.
Please accept our deepest condolences for your loss.
We will miss him dearly when we are back in Canada.
Fritz and Astrid
