Harold will be remembered by all those who knew him as a man of character, principle, and a tremendous sense of humour. A good prank made his day - never malicious - with great fun as the objective, always.
Harold was predeceased by his wife of 64 years, Margaret in 2018. He is survived by their family, Greg (Joy), Bruce (Cathy) and Barb (Doug). As a family man, his grandchildren were a particular source of pride: Brita, Dinah, Vanessa, Nicole, Brett, Jon and Scott. Harold's refrigerator was adorned with their pictures, and all visitors were entertained with introductions and stories about each one of them.
Harold was born to Percy and Peggy Jowett of Winnipeg, Manitoba. He grew up in Fort Rouge with his siblings: Russell, Frank and Edward. He was the last surviving member of his immediate family, a proud Winnipegger, and avid Blue Bomber and Jets supporter.
Harold and Marg raised their family in Westwood. He was an involved parent, cheering on his kids in their various endeavours or actively coaching baseball. Harold loved the outdoors, fishing, and all breeds of dogs.
He worked for Trans Canada Airlines, Ashdowns, Western Alloys and Metals, and Bissett & Webb Ltd., - later purchasing the company and fulfilling his lifelong dream as an entrepreneur. He very much enjoyed dealing with customers and, in true Harold fashion, built lifelong relationships with many of them.
Harold was the kind of person who could encounter someone new and within a short period of time have a new best friend. He could quickly ascertain that they were somehow connected via family or friends. He was a warm personality, and a true people person. A one in a million character.
Harold's family would like to thank the management and staff of Sturgeon Creek II for their love and care extended to their father over the last number of years.
In lieu of flowers, Harold would ask that you reach out, say hello to someone new, and make a new friend.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions a private family service has been held.

Condolences & Memories (4 entries)
Condolences to Greg, Bruce and Barb. Your dad was a real gentleman, and a great example to the entire family. - Posted by: Greg J (Extended family) on: Oct 18, 2020
Most of the time with Harold during the last visit I had with him at his apartment was standing around his fridge looking as he spent a long time raving about the pictures of his family on the fridge door. He was so proud of them all and had a story to tell about each and every one of them in every picture. Even thoough Margie and Harold on gone now, we will always have great memories of the time we spent with them both. Love, Fran & Lionel Moore - Posted by: Lionel Moore (Friends) on: Oct 12, 2020
It has been a pleasure to get to know Harold over the years spent at SC II. His wonderful sense of humor was infectious and touched many. He will be greatly missed by all. Dear family, you will forever be part of who we are and Harold will live on as we celebrate his life going forward through the many memories we will cherish. - Posted by: karen single (friend) on: Oct 04, 2020
