It is with great sadness that we announce the passing at Polson Extended Care Home of Harold Arthur Boutilier at the age of 94 years. Harold was born in New Waterford Cape Breton, Nova Scotia on October 23, 1920. He spent his early years working as a coal miner until he joined the army in 1953. He and his wife, Marguerite moved to Manitoba with their 5 daughters. Then in 1959 they moved to Calgary with their completed family of 6 daughters.
Harold retired from the army in 1977 and they moved to Invermere, BC. Harold worked at different jobs until the day he turned 65. He and Marguerite then enjoyed their time travelling and spending time with family until Marguerite passed away in 1998. Harold then moved to Vernon, BC
Harold will be lovingly missed by his 6 daughters; Audrey (Tony) Hiscock, Florence Pomeroy, Judy Ganong, Carole (John) Wilson, Linda (Greg) Trewin, Dawn Boutilier. He is also survived by 14 grandchildren, 33 great grandchildren, and 5 great-great grandchildren.
