Harry Wathen of Sunnyside, Gull Lake Alberta passed away peacefully at the Rimbey Hospital and Care Center on Wed. Jan. 11, 2017 at the age of 82 years with family by his side. He will be sadly missed by Shirley, his wife of 56 years, his son Jim, his daughters Laurie (Robin), Bonnie (Mark), four grandchildren Raymond (Samantha), Kristy (Kenny), Brandy and Lukas. Also four great-grandsons who brought much joy to his life, Damien, Jake, Coby, and Johnny; two sister-in-laws Linda and Judy and one brother-in-law Ron, as well as numerous neices and nephews. Harry was predeceased by his parents Harry and Flo, his sisters Helen, Gertrude, Anne, Betty, and Rose. Harry’s generous heart and kind spirit were as much a trademark as his cowboy hat, boots, and belt buckle. At Harry’s request there will be no formal services held.
