Harold Firlotte

June 27, 1928 - March 18, 2013


On Monday March 18, 2013, Mr. Harold Newton Firlotte of Oliver, BC passed away after a long illness, in the arms of his loving wife and daughter at McKinney Place Extended Care at the age of 84 years.

He was predeceased by his parents; Mabel & Edmond Firlotte, brothers; Ken Firlotte (Gertie), Wallace Firlotte (Pearl), Guy Firlotte (Elmyre), Bob Firlotte (Helen), sisters; Clara Ukrainec (Phil) & Susan Firlotte.

Harold will be fondly remembered by his loving wife of 56 years Mary Firlotte, his children Hal Firlotte (Linda), Darren Firlotte, Terry Firlotte (Carmen), Sherri-Lee Firlotte, Merri-Lynn Lloyd (Bo Hons); his 10 beautiful grandchildren, Lindsay, Jaimie, Tristan, Alysha, Davis, Meghan, Jake, Cayse, Mathew & Caelan, his great-grandson Dmitri Young; his sister Fay Whitley (Don) as well as many nieces and nephews.

Harold held several jobs as a young man in Eastern Canada.  He moved to Regina in 1964 where he worked as a Millwright for IPSCO Inc. until he retired in 1991.

Harold & Mary enjoyed travelling throughout their many years together.  They have many fond memories of the 11 winters they spent in Largo, Florida.  In 2003, they settled in Oliver, BC to enjoy “God’s country”. 

Harold was an active volunteer helping others in his retirement communities.

He also enjoyed golf and woodworking.

There will be a private family celebration of Harold’s life in Regina this summer. Harold’s remains will be inurned in his final resting place at Regina’s Memorial Gradens.
