Harry Anthony Bardoel passed away peacefully at home on November 29th, 2022, surrounded by his family. Harry is survived by his wife of 52 years Trudy (Strik). He will be deeply missed by his daughter and son-in-law, Jackie and David French. He will be lovingly remembered by his grandchildren Julia, Monique and Aaron. He leaves behind his brothers and sisters Herman (Betty), Martin (Coral), Truus (Chris), Marie (John), Ann (Bill), Nellie (Hans), Joe (Heidi), Jan and Ger (Paula). Harry is predeceased by his daughter Shirley and brother Ben and sisters-in-law Betty and Coral and brothers-in-law Bill and John. Harry will be fondly missed by his extended family and friends here in Canada and in Holland.
Harry was born in Merselo, Venray, Holland and came to Canada in 1967. He started out in Canada by building silos with his brothers until he and Trudy started farming in 1973. Harry also worked for Agricorp for approximately 20 years in crop insurance sales. Harry was the life of the party and was the happiest when he was in deep conversation reminiscing about the past or predicting the future. He loved his family and his family loved him. We will all miss him dearly.
