It is with heavy hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of George Rowan Harradine on September 17, 2023 at the age of 82 years. Beloved husband of the late Paulette, he is now reunited with his soulmate. Loving father of Ann Marie (Mark). Proud papa and best buddy of Connor. Dear brother of Nancy, Elva and Alec and the late Joe, Johnny, Kathleen, Jeannie, and Isobel.
He will be lovingly remembered and missed by his family, many nieces, nephews, and friends.
Fishing was one of George's greatest passions, and he spent countless years casting his line in some of Ontario's most scenic waters, including the Nottawasaga River and Georgian Bay. His favourite times were his adventures and fishing the many lakes and rivers on his trips to Thunder Bay and fly fishing the Margaree River on family vacations.
George had a deep love for nature and the environment where he found joy and peace. He was often seen tending to his gardens and enjoyed his early morning walks along Kempenfelt Bay which he thought was a perfect way to start the day. He will always be remembered wearing his trademark Tilley hat and a smile.
A private Cremation has taken place. A Mass will be held at St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church, 65 Amelia St., Barrie on Saturday, September 23, 2023 at 10:00 a.m.

A celebration of life will take place at a later date.
