ROWE, Harold
Harold was born on Manitoulin Island December 21, 1921, son of Ted and Lily ROWE. He was later joined by a sister Edna and a brother Wilbert.
In 1942 Harold joined the Canadian Army, Second Division landing in France in 1944 to begin the fighting. He was wounded twice during the war. His brother Wilbert was killed and is buried in Holland. The war ended May 8, 1945, he arrived back in Canada, November 27, 1945 and was finally discharged January 21, 1946.
He bought a truck and a small farm outside Little Current. On February 21, 1950 he married Doreen STRINGER. A son, Garry, was born June 14, 1951 and Carol arrived September 1, 1952. In 1957 they moved to the 8th of Proton buying a farm from Lou BENSON.
They bought milk cows, converted the barn adding a bulk tank and began shipping milk. In 1967 they sold the farm and bought the New Century Restaurant from John and Irene MILLS. Harold started a job at the newly built factory Trim Trends, working in the day time at the factory and then switching to washing dishes at the restaurant in the evening. He continued at Trim Trends until his retirement in 1986.
He took flying lessons from Carl IRWIN and got his pilot's license which had been a dream of his for years. He bought a two-seater Cessna which he kept at Lorne ACHESON's until they built their present house, a hanger for the plane and a landing strip. He attended many fly-ins, looked for lost cattle, flew back and forth to the Manitoulin to visit his relatives and really enjoyed flying.
They sold the restaurant in 1969 and in 1970 Greg joined the family. Early '80s a boat replaced the plane and a trailer was placed at Victoria Harbour where they spent many weekends fishing and relaxing.
Harold had many hobbies. He loved to read, listen to music, and watch horse racing on T.V. He was an avid bird watcher and had many visitors at his feeders. He loved to travel and had taken many trips to the American West, Canadian West, East coast and Florida. He was overseas twice, once in 1984 with Doreen and Carol and again in 2004 with Allan SMITH. He visited Germany, Holland, France Belgium, Luxembourg and England. While there he visited his brother's grave and many other interesting places.
He took pride in his huge garden always trying to outsmart the birds and keep them away from his strawberries. He had a passion for teaching his children, their Friends and grandchildren to love the sport of fishing, a tradition that hopefully they will pass on to their children. Some days his line never got in the water as he was too busy taking off sunfish and small bass for everyone else. He went on many fishing trips with his sons and grand_sons. He loved to fish and even liked it better if he caught something. He was also a very good cook and was always looking for new recipes to try. You could always count on there being cookies, squares, donuts around for the grandchildren and the candy dish was always full.
He was a great Dad supporting and helping his children. He built his own home and helped build Garry's and Greg's homes. He was always there to answer any questions and offer advice. He spent endless hours helping at Lorne and Carol's farm, ploughing, cultivating, baling, drawing grain, fixing things and doing any little jobs that needed to be done. His truck could be seen daily spring and fall heading towards the farm. He was a cherished and special grandfather who was always there whether it be to babysit, or teach them to ride their first bike, or read a story or remove that sunfish from their hook. There were always some treats somewhere in the house for the grandchildren when they popped in after school.
Harold passed away peacefully at home on April 13, 2006, and will be sadly missed but lovingly remembered by his wife Doreen, son Gary and Barb, daughter Carol and Lorne, son Greg and Kelly, his grandchildren Don and Stacy ROWE, Theresa and Sandy YOUNG, Janette, Denise, Lori, Andrew, Kati RIDDELL, Connor and Meghan ROWE and great-grandchildren Avery, Jared and Jordon ROWE and Carter and Abigail YOUNG.
To live in the hearts we leave behind, is not to die.

RAIKES, Alan
In memory of a loving husband, father and grandfather who passed away 10 years ago, October 12, 1996.
This month comes with deep regret
It brings back a day we cannot forget,
You left us suddenly with a short goodbye
But memories of you will never die.
May the winds of love blow softly
And whisper so you will hear,
That we will always love and miss you
And wish that you were here.
Forever remembered and missed by wife Barbara, son Russell (Cindy), daughters Debra KEECH, Diane STROME (Gordon) and grandchildren.
