It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Harry Blackwell after a long, courageous battle with cancer. Harry passed peacefully on March 25, 2022 at the age of 89, surrounded by his loving family.
A beloved husband, father, grandfather, and friend, Harry will be forever remembered by the love of his life and wife of 64 years, Helen (nee Solecki); his children: Chris (Bruce), Steve (Lynn), Diane (Brent); and his grandchildren: Brett (Nattaly), Aly (Thomas), Jayden, and Rylan. He will also be dearly missed by his close friends.
Harry’s loving heart was a beacon of light to all that had the pleasure to know him. He had an uncanny ability to make everyone laugh and was an amazing storyteller. If you were to measure a man by his kindness, his unconditional love, and his courage, it is no wonder he is known by his family as “Superman”.
The family thanks his caring doctors, all his caregivers, and his angel nurse, Vilma, for making his final days as comfortable as possible. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Odette Cancer Centre at Sunnybrook Hospital.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
Forever in our hearts. Never forgotten. Our hero.
