October 1, 1943 - July 6, 2008

The family of Harry Burnett sadly announces his passing on Sunday, July 6, 2008 at the age of 64 after a battle with Multiple System Atrophy. He is survived by his wife of 40 years, Sandra, and his sons, Simon & Paul.

Born in Hadleigh, Suffolk he emigrated to Dawson Creek where he met & married Sandra. He worked as a Geophysicist and through that, introduced his family to many places around the world. Significant stopovers included Calgary, Spain, San Antonio and Vancouver. During a period of “semi-retirement” he purchased a hotel in Belize, Central America and named it Hotel Playador (home of the legendary Crazy Canuck bar). Harry and Sandra moved to Blind Bay in 2003 where they made many wonderful friends. He died peacefully.

In keeping with his fun-loving spirit, there will be no funeral but a celebration of Harry’s life on Thursday, July 10th. It will take place at 3:00 pm at 2836 Marine Drive, Blind Bay (Jim & Evie Zerbin’s). Casual attire (shorts & t-shirts) would be preferred. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Parkinson’s Society of BC would be appreciated by the family.

Nice pic of Harry. He and Sandra were always a pleasure to be around. They are definitely missed. And now it starts to sink in that they are not only off the island, but Harry is never coming back.....
