Harold Birt of Mountain passed away peacefully at home on Tues., Oct. 23, 2012, in his 87th year.
He was the beloved son of the late James Birt and Lena (nee Finley). He was the loving brother of Mary (the late Ernie Blais) of Ottawa, the late Austin, Daniel (Hazel), and Rita (Mrs. John Albert). He was the dear uncle of many nieces and nephews. Harold was the cherished friend of Patricia Guy (Geoffrey), and their children, Elizabeth, Jacob, and Patrick.
A memorial mass was held at St. Mary of the Visitation Roman Catholic Church in Chesterville on Mon., Oct. 29 at 10 am, followed by inurnment at St. Daniel’s Catholic Cemetery in South Mountain.

I believe when a man grows old and sums up his days, he should be able to stand tall and feel pride in the life he’s lived.
