The world has become a bit more dim, as we said goodbye to a wonderful person, Harold Edward Thorp.
His 3 daughters were at his side as he passed peacefully, August 13, 2021 at the age of 98.
He is survived by Sharon (Bill), Debbie (Norm), Mary (Bruce), Howard (Tina), Grandchildren, Great Grandchildren and Great Great Grandchild, brother Allan (Gladys), and numerous nieces and nephews.
Predeceased by the two loves of his life, June in 1984, Reen in 2016, his siblings, Eleanor (Don), Tommy, Bernice (Bob), and Earl (Joyce). This World War II Veteran served in Burma (Myanmar) in the 436 Squadron. The 436 “Can Do Attitude” served him well for life. An avid volunteer in a number of diverse areas, he received the Governor General’s Medal for
Community Service along with many other awards, medals and accolades. He never met a stranger and was known by many as Mr Fix It.
He was an active member of the Canadian Legion for over 60 years. He laid a wreath on behalf of the 436 Squadron on Remembrance Day.
He lived in a number of communities in British Columbia, his last 7 years at Hampton House in Chilliwack, introducing him to his new circle of friends. He was encouraged to be his caring helpful self, and to share his vast knowledge and skills. He remained an intelligent, dignified, giving, caring, humorous gentleman to his last breath.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date in Prince George BC.Obituary
