Obituary

Obituary for Harold Lockwood

Harold Lockwood Jr., nicknamed Harpo with his golden curls, after the Marx Brother, died March 5, 2019, in St. Joseph’s Hospice.
He was 90 years old, born on April 16, 1928 in Fort William, Ontario to Harold and Fanny (nee Mackenzie) Lockwood.
Harp was predeceased by his parents and 3 older siblings, George (Tut), Frances Poulter and Phyllis Beaver. His brothers-in-law Fred Poulter Sr., and Duncan Beaver, as well as nieces Carol Ann Gruen, Linda Mills, Cathy Williams and nephew Hugh Beaver. Eunice Gray, his mother-in-law was dear to his heart and she was part of his family until her passing.
Harp is survived by his wife of 65 years, Joan, his three sons, Sandy (Mary), Stewart (Kim) and Kirk. Also left to miss their Grandpa is Christopher (Ghiesel) and Carolann (Mark) Lockwood. In-Laws Bob and Norma Bresden will always cherish their own memories of Harpo.
Harp leaves behind nephews and nieces Bobby Lockwood, Fred Poulter Jr. (Susan), Larry Poulter (Carol), Valerie Zeleny (Dan), and Artie (Lonni) Pounsford and Susan (nee Pounsford) Hooks and their children. As well, Scott and Patti Hagarty, Kim (Daryl), and Roger (Cyndy) Bresden will remember their Uncle Harp fondly.
Harp was a wonderful human being to all and a best friend to many.
His outlook on life was always upbeat, positive and full of joy. He loved people, their stories, their backgrounds. He loved to travel and he and Joan saw the world. Harp had a gift of being inclusive; he could meet anyone, anywhere and would become a friend within moments. One’s station in life, whether high or low, didn’t matter much to Harp. If you could tell a story or a joke, you were in.
In Thailand he was once approached by a little boy who looked up and said “ Mister, You one big Bhudda!” He loved to tell that anecdote.
He worked hard for Abitibi Paper, all his life, until his retirement in 1990; he enjoyed tennis, golf, curling, skiing when he wasn’t “down at the mill”. Cards and cribbage were mainstays of any visit.
The family home on Peter Street was a hub of activity for many years. Neighbours Rob Cameron, Katie Hiekkinen and little Andrew wove their way into all our hearts and will remain there always.
Finally, Dad loved Loon Lake and Sunset Lodge; the Camp and what eventually became his home. He was happiest there, surrounded by his family and his friends.
Winters for the last 15 years in Mesa Regal RV Park added warm weather, memories and even more friends, especially Jamie (Denyse) Jarvis, from Thunder Bay and his next-door-neighbours, David and Judy Power.
A Celebration of Life will be held this summer at West Loon Lake.
Even death is not to be feared by one who has lived fully. – Bhudda.

My condolences to the family. I knew Harp from work at Abitibi but got to know him better in Mesa, Arizona for many years. He always remembered everyone's name and was very hospitable, and of course there was always a rum waiting for everyone. A real gentleman.

Dear Joan, Sandy, Stewart, Kirk and family,
My sincere condolences on your recent loss of Harp. I have many fond childhood memories of spending time at Loon Lake at the “small camp” with Noonie, Aunt Norma and Scott. Harp would love to come up the hill for a visit and perhaps get an extra piece of Noonie’s famous chocolate cake, saying “Don’t tell Joan!” Harps greeting to my sister Kelly and myself was always “And how are you girls doing?” along with a big hug. May the cherished memories of your loved one give you strength at this sad time.

Dear Joan, Sandy Stewart and Kirk...........I'm writing to send condolences to you and your families for the loss of a dear husband, father and grandfather. Harp and all of you have been great friends to our family for as long as I can remember. My father in particular.
Myrna and I ran into Harp just a month or so ago in the parking lot of Port Arthur Clinic, Myrna was near late for her appointment, they were having a vivid conversation. I'm glad they had a chance to chat.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
Gary, Mary Jane and family.

Thank you Harp for the wonderful friendship over the last 20 years. Camp will never be the same again; Joyce and I will miss you and your helping hands, especially during our ritual battle with the water pump and triumphant celebration drink when we vanquished the air from the line. Rest in peace my friend
Marvin and Joyce
