December 29, 1921 – October 29, 2015
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Harry Carroll. Harry was predeceased by Joan, his wife of 66 years. Harry is survived by his sons Philip (Diane), Michael (Deb), Peter (Nancy), daughter Anne (Don), eight grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his niece Maureen and family in England. Harry was a veteran of WWII serving five years in the Royal Navy on a destroyer escorting convoys across the North Atlantic and was also part of the June 6, 1944 D-Day Invasion of Normandy. Harry and Joan were both born in England and came to Canada in 1951. They spent many years in various places across Canada (chasing construction) until they finally settled in Port Alberni, BC. Harry was the maintenance superintendant for the Alberni School District until his retirement in 1986. In 2000, Harry and Joan moved to Vernon, BC to be closer to their children. At Harry’s request, there will be no service. Harry and Joan’s ashes will be spread in the Clee Hills, England.
