MENDES, Harold C., Ph.D., L Col (ret), DTM
May 1948 – Sep 2015
Harold lived life to the fullest and passed peacefully supported by his wife, Christiane, children Kristine (Sean), and Karl (Hollis), siblings Maurice (Claudette), Georges (Christine), Michel (Carmen), Sylvia (Bernard), Simon-Pierre (Ginette), and many nephews and nieces.
As he dealt with the challenging moments of his failing health, Harold saw every day as a gift, all the while displaying extraordinary courage, optimism, and stoicism.
Harold often expressed how grateful he was to have such supportive family and friends, and how appreciative he was of the care given by those in the medical community. You are too numerous to mention by name, but you know who you are. Thank you all.
Family will receive friends on Sat. Sep 26 @ St Paul’s Anglican Church (20 Young Rd, Kanata) from noon until the time to celebrate Harold’s life in Sanctuary at 3 PM. A reception will follow in the church hall.
In lieu of flowers, donations to St Paul’s Anglican Church or the The Ride (Ottawa Hospital Foundation Cancer Fundraiser).
