HAROLD BESWATHERICK Harold Beswatherick of Binscarth, Manitoba passed away on Monday, November 3, 2014 at the age of 73 years. He was born in Carberry on January 29, 1941 and spent his early years in Winnipeg, moving to Portage La Prairie in 1976 and then to Binscarth in 2002. Harold is survived by his wife Pat, daughter Paddy (George Graham) of Foxwarren, son Andrew (Jody Oxford) of Binscarth, three brothers, three sisters, and his very special grandchildren: Caleb and Donavin Beswatherick, and Cassandra Graham. Harold loved the great outdoors, everything from the smallest creepy spider to the majestic eagle, including camping, hunting, trapping and hiking. He loved to teach others, be it his siblings, children, grandchildren and many others. He spent many hours fishing anywhere, especially Silver Beach. Fishing was his passion and Harold spent 34 years working for Berkley Canada. One of his greatest assets was his smile and his whistle. His friends affectionately referred to him as "Happy Harry". His retirement years were spent developing a passion for photography and wildflowers; wild life and old homesteads were his favourite subjects. He also developed and printed his own pictures and they adorned the walls of many family and friends. Friends are invited to join the family for a time of fellowship and sharing of memories at the Binscarth Drop In Centre on Friday, November 7, 2014 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. If friends so desire, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba or a charity of choice. Remembrances and condolences may be emailed to Braendle-Bruce Funeral Service of Russell is in care of arrangements. (204) 773-2747.

  • Hi Pat I am so sorry to learn of Harry's passing. Please know that my prayers as well as those of Dirk, Syd and their families are with you and yours. Love Cathy - Posted by: Cathy Wilson (horner) (friend) on: Mar 17, 2015

  • Please accept our deepest sympathy and Harold will be truly missed. We go through life knowing many people but there are few that can have an impact such as Harold did. It has been many years since we last had contact but thought of him a lot. I learned of his passing only after looking him up as was going to get in touch with him. I consider Harold to be among my closest friends and he did leave a positive impact on those that knew him he will be truly missed. I truly regret not having kept in closer contact but it seems that our lives move so fast and we get absorbed in our daily activities and our greatest of intentions get put on the back burner. Pat Paddy Andrew and your families please accept my sincere condolences and heartfelt sympathy and may you all stay healthy and happy. Sincerely Clayton Blighto - Posted by: Clayton Blight (Friend) on: Feb 14, 2015

  • Pat. My old friend. Missing you now that my computer is working, I looked for you, naturally only to find that your beloved husband had moved on to greener pastures. Best wishes and please stay in touch. mary lou - Posted by: Mary Lou Willard (work acquaintance.) on: Dec 11, 2014

  • Please accept my deepest condolences. It has been years since we hosted the young people from Quebec and shared the hot tub at Southport but I have often thought of you, Pat. It is interesting to note that Larry passed away on November 2nd a year ago at the same age. There will be many lonely days, but a blessing that your children are nearby. - Posted by: Lois Peterson (friend) on: Nov 12, 2014
