Harry graduated from The Olds College and became a respected cattle buyer in the Lethbridge and Calgary area. Always a cowboy, he was the youngest son in the Mitchell Ranching Company.

As to Harry’s wishes there will be no funeral service.

We wish to thank all the very caring staff at the Lethbridge Regional Hospital for their excellent care and kindness to our Dad and Grandpa.

You’ll take me by the hand and say, “Welcome home COWBOY’
