It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of our brother Harold

Harold was a furniture salesman for many years in Toronto ,Ontario and
Vancouver British Columbia, and returned to his native Nova Scotia and
Cape Breton about 4 years ago.

He is survived by his 3 older brothers, Roy, Wayne, Darrell,  and
younger brother Garry  and predeceased by his next older brother
Leslie. He is also predeceased by his Mother Florence Stackhouse (nee
McCarville) of Prince Edward Island, and his father Roy Stackhouse of
Halifax Nova Scotia. He is also survived by son Jason and his mother

His gregarious personality and sense of humour will be sadly missed by
his family, especially nieces, Lisa and Sheryl and many other nieces
and nephews!! He will also be sadly missed by his best friend of 60
years Curtis Clory and neighbour Les Skinner of Arichat, Cape Breton
Nova Scotia.

The family would like to extend their gratitude to  Doctor Cooper and
the nurses of the St.Marthas Hospital  Antigonish Nova Scotia and also
