Harold was born in Vancouver, BC on July 9, 1891. He filed on homesteads at 3-70-9-W6 and SE 23-70-9-W6 but it is uncertain at what time he may have lived here. Harold enlisted in Vancouver in November of 1914; he listed “surveyor” as his trade. His brothers Arthur, Francis, and John served in the Canadian army as well. In September of 1916, Harold received gunshot wounds to his back and left leg, but he recovered from these wounds. On November 6, 1917, Harold died of shrapnel wounds to the head at the No. 17 Casualty Clearing Station. His grave marker is inscribed with “Love can never lose its own.”
