Dear brother of the late Russel Mathers.
Harry was a kind, humourous and gentle man. He dedicated his life to the service of his community through his profession, his involvement with local service clubs, the Masonic Lodge and through municipal politics. Harry was bestowed the Thomas Stayner Award for his achievements.
Most of all he loved his family, to dance, the cottage and his walks throughout his community sharing a well told story or two, all the while, puffing on his ever present pipe. He will be dearly missed.
Friends will be received at his former funeral home, Carruthers & Davidson, Stayner on Thursday September 8, 2016 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m.. Funeral Service will be held at the Jubilee Presbyterian Church, 7320 Highway 26, Stayner on Friday September 9, 2016 at 1 p.m.. Interment at Stayner.
If desired, donations to the Canadian Diabetes Association would be appreciated by Harry’s family.
