It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Harold Willey of Coleman, AB on January 3, 2023 at the Crowsnest Pass Health Care Centre. He was almost 76 years of age.
Harold was born in Toronto, ON on January 6, 1947 to loving parents, Frank and Ruby Willey. Along with his thirteen siblings, he was raised to be a kind, hardworking individual and to treasure family, friends and all of life’s blessings. These lessons, and a quiet Christian faith, remained with him his entire life.
Harold enjoyed working on cars and small engines, as well as driving and trucking. He was also a great cook and baker who liked watching cooking shows to gain more knowledge and new recipes, and his deep care for others was evident through his membership with the Sons of Scotland Benevolent Association. More than anything, Harold loved spending time with family and friends – especially playing bingo with his sister, Audrey. May precious memories bring comfort to all who knew him. He will be deeply missed and never forgotten.
Left to mourn his passing and celebrate his life are his sons, Kevin (Melissa) Willey and Perry Willey of Sudbury, ON; his daughters, Karen Willey of Saint-Jerome, QC and Beverley Willey of Sudbury, ON; his grandchildren, Austin, Katie, Sarah and Anne-Cloé; his sister, Audrey Susan Ouellet; his brother-in-law, Denis Ouellet; nieces and nephews, Norm (Cheryl); Steve, Tammy (Ben), Audrey “Jr.” (Greg) and Nelson; his special cousin, Ivan; as well as his extended family and many friends.
He was predeceased by his parents, Frank and Ruby; his, wife, Marianne; his daughter, Nancy Willey; his sister, Marjorie Ouellet; his brother-in-law, Maurice Ouellet; and his nephew, Danny Ouellet.
