Barbara and Harold “JC” moved to Oshawa in 1974 and started their family having 2 sons James and Stephen Tremblay.
Harold was a very proud and involved Dad with OCHL hockey, Scouts Canada, Hot Dog Day, Parent Council, and Willowdale Park Soccer Association.
James married Lori and Stephen married Megan, which gave him his 2 daughters who were very special in his heart.
Harold “JC” was such a proud poppa of his cherished grandchildren; Riley, Jacob, Jack, Ella and his close companion and best buddy, Samurai.
He was not just their Poppa, he was their hero. He could always be counted on, driving them to work, and spoiling them with whatever they needed.
Poppa never missed a hockey game, practice, sporting event, traveling to tournaments and school activities for all his grandchildren. Predeceased by his parents Harold and Celeste Tremblay, his brother’s Jeff and Paul Tremblay.
Survived by his sisters Carla (Ken) Veneebles, Carrie (Dave) O’Donnell and his brother Peter Tremblay. Also survived by many nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family and very close friends.
Harold “JC” loved to travel with Barbie (as he fondly called her) particularly to Florida (The Destin Group) Walt Disney World, multiple cruises and many other destinations.
He was there for anyone who needed him and never missed a Repatriation Ceremony along the “Highway of Heroes” to honor our soldiers coming home.
Harold “JC” loved to volunteer particularly at Grandview Children’s Centre (Annual Golf Tournament and Butterfly Release).
He loved the game of hockey coaching and played with the Whitby Men’s Hockey League as a goalie until 2020 and he kept his Toronto Maple Leaf “Leaf Tree” to honour his favourite team.
