Read more about the life story of Harold "Dewey" and share your memory.
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our brother, father, grandfather, great grandfather and Uncle. Harold was better known as "Dewey" to his loving family.
Although Harold was born in Nova Scotia, He lived most of his adult life in Ontario where his passion for trucking lead him to travel all over North America. When it was time to deliver his last load and shut down the truck for the last time, he decided to retire in the place he loved most...Nova Scotia. Harold retired in 2018 and was only able to enjoy retirement in his new home for a year and a half before he was diagnosed with cancer. Over the next three and a half years Harold fought hard but succumbed to his ailments on September 9, 2023 surrounded by his loved ones.
Dewey is survived by his sisters; Nancy (Jim) Bruce, Carole Anne (Lester), Zelma (Gary) Racicot, Linda (Robert) Chambers, Tammy (Kerry) Burgess, Lisa (Greg) Hopper. His brothers; David (Petra) Begin and Jimmy Begin. His sons, Robin Begin, Kyle Begin and his daughter Annette Begin. Grandsons, Tyler Snow, Dustin Begin. His granddaughters; Destinie Gagen and Rylei Begin. Great-grandchildren; Kaden, Chase, Lucas, Austin, Ally, Maddy and Blake.
Harold was predeceased by his Father Harold Kenneth and Mother Iris Katherine. His sisters; Joanna Begin, Jackie Hood, Nina & Patricia and his brother Richard Begin.
The family would also like to give love and thanks to Cousin Russell Huntley who Dewey loved like a brother and was always by his side. Brother-in-law Robert Chambers who always made sure Dewey was comfortable and had everything he needed and always looked out for his best interests. Friend Joe MacLeod who was his spiritual guide and gave him immense comfort in his final years. Sister Carole Ann, there are no words to convey the gratitude and appreciation for everything she did for him. Tasks far too numerous to list. In the last years of his life, she meant the world to him. Harold will be sorely missed but never forgotten.
There will be a service held at the Windsor Forks Cemetery Saturday September 16 at 2:00 pm.. Everyone is invited afterwards to his sister Carole Ann's home at 849 Sangster Bridge Road Falmouth for a celebration of life.
