With a heavy heart we announce that Harold John Pearcey of Medicine Hat, AB, passed away on the 2nd of April, 2020 at the age of 86 at Masterpiece Southland Meadows after a courageous battle with hydrocephalus and lung cancer.

Harold was a printer by trade and began his career with The Daily News in St. Johns, NL before moving to Medicine Hat in 1966. He continued his trade with the Medicine Hat News until his retirement. Harold enjoyed fishing and camping in his spare time. He enjoyed spending time with his Grandchildren and if he had a chance he would teach him to fish and help them catch a fish or two.  Due to current circumstances a celebration of life will be announced at a later date.

Funeral arrangements are entrusted to Saamis Memorial Funeral Chapel & Crematorium.

Condolences to Nana, my mom and the rest of our immediate and extended family. Papa was a great man and will be dearly missed. Like the rest of his grandchildren I will remember his snake bikes. I also have fond memories of going to the “Moose” sitting around sipping on ginger ale.

Other memorable moments include lots of fishing memories and driving around in the grey camper van having snacks and playing cards at the table in there.

Thanks for Nana and you selling your car to my parents which turned out to be my first car. You will be missed and thought of often. Wish we saw more of each other.

Aunt Jean and family. So sorry to hear of the passing of Uncle Harold. We all have a lot of god memories of him from when he lived in Newfoundland. He visited us often and took us on drives to the country. I remember he especially loved camping and fishing. Wish we lived closer and could come visit you . Our thoughts are with you all at this time. Bobbi

To Jean and family: Our condolences on the loss of Harold. I was working in the "backshop" composing room when Harold moved here from "The Rock"...or as he might say he "come from away". A great person to work with over the years and always fun at the News stage etc.

To Jean, Linda, Charlotte, and Shawn and families
My condolences on the loss of Harold. I will always remember his stories about "down East"!! He always knew how to make people laugh...and was very entertaining at "socials" for the News. I'm sure that my Dad was waiting for him up in Heaven.
