Harry Edwin Hill, March 11, 1928 - October 30, 2020
Harry was born March 11, 1928 in Kindersley Saskatchewan to Robert and Muriel Hill. One of nine children. Raised on the family farm, he attended Tennyson school to grade 10 then completed grades 11 and 12 in Flaxcombe. After that he attended the University of Saskatchewan where he graduated in 1949 with a two-year diploma in agriculture.
Working, farming and accumulating land, he gradually made his way back to the farm in the late fifties and settled there in 1961. There he farmed two sections of land with his mom and dad for many years.
Harry was a talented carpenter and used those skills to benefit the community. He was involved in building the United Church Hall for Sunday school and a kitchen addition to the Community Hall in Flaxcombe.
He enjoyed woodworking as a hobby and gave away many homemade gifts to friends and family.
He took up flying in the winter of 1964 which turned into a lifelong passion. Time spent talking, observing or flying planes was always exciting for Harry. Combined with his carpentry skills he would go on to build five aircraft.
Harry acquired the nick name of Mr. Co-op. He spent 30 years on the board in different roles including president in both Kindersley and Flaxcombe.
Harry married Doreen Seward (nee Stead) in November of 1986. Joy and happiness was abundant for both as they travelled between two homes. Summers on the farm near Flaxcombe and winters in Surrey B.C. In 2009 they took up permanent residence at Caleb Village in Kindersley. Sadly in 2010 Doreen passed away. In 2018 Harry relocated to Eatonia Oasis Living.
