HAROLD GORDON MCGIBBON
DEC. 14, 1936-FEB. 21, 2013
Harold’s spunky spirit left us far too early on February 21, 2013 at 10:55pm in Terrace hospital after a sudden complication with his heart.
Born in Penticton and raised in Oliver BC, Harold lived a busy active life as a brother to Roderick, John, and Marjorie. He is pre-deceased by both his parents Alexander and Helen, and brother Roderick.
Harold met and married his wife Lorraine in Oliver. Soon after they moved to Kitimat BC where their first child Shelley Louise was born. Just 3 years later they welcomed their son Ian Gordon.
After a short year in Kitimat the McGibbon family moved to Smithers BC where they have lived for the past 49 years. Harold had a successful career in hauling logs. After many years he retired the log truck for a shiny red Harley. He could be seen burning about the highways, riding without a care in the world. When he wasn’t on his hog, “Grandpa” was chasing his grand daughters Erin, Megan, Jennifer, and Heather around with great pride.
There will be no service at Harold’s request. The family will hold a special memorial this summer.
“Forever in our hearts- ride free”
The family is extremely grateful to Dr. Blouw, Dr. Page, Dr. Lim (Terrace) and staff of BVDH and Mills Memorial Hospital for the kind and loving care they provided through this sad time.
