BONGERS: Henry Allan Oscar “Harry”
Passed away peacefully in his home on Wednesday June 3, 2020, aged 91 years. Harry had a passion and love for life that could been seen and felt by all who knew him. His deep love for his family, especially his wife and his lived faith were his cornerstones. He was a loyal friend, who contributed so much to this world through his professional and personal life, he greatly loved music, and was always the life of the party. He is forever loved and missed by his wife and best friend, Mickey and by his two true joys, daughters Meredith Bongers (Jared Jowett) of Edmonton and Courtney VanSlageren (Dan) of Omemee. Precious grandfather of Sydney, Xavier, Owen and Elijah. Survived by his brother-in-law Fraser Farquhar (Anne) of Peterborough. Predeceased by his parents Henry & Ag, son Brennan in infancy and brother-in-law John in infancy. Cremation has taken place. A private family service will be held at this time with a Celebration of Life to be held when it is safe to do so.
