MICHAEL CARR-HARRIS

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a great husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend Michael Carr-Harris on January 6, 2016.

Michael was born in Toronto in 1934 and grew up in southern Ontario and British Columbia. He joined the Air Force in 1954, and his military and civilian flying adventures took him to some of Canada’s most remote corners, fighting forest fires in Northern Alberta, and flying bush planes on the west coast of Vancouver Island, the Yukon, the Arctic Circle, and BC’s rugged north coast. Mike settled with his family in Prince Rupert in 1987.

Mike is survived by Lynette, his loving wife of 42 years, brother Brian (Sara) and daughters Sandra (Dominic), Sarah (Chad), Charmaine, Marilyn, and Rachel, grandchildren Peter, Rebecca (Matteo), and Thomas, and many loving nieces and nephews.

We would like to thank the friends who have given so much support during this difficult time, and the staff at PRRH for their care and compassion during his final days. A Celebration of Life was held in Prince Rupert on January 10. A memorial will be held in Victoria, BC in May 2016.
