Beloved husband of Faye (Golden) Clarke of 51 years. Loving father of Heather McKenzie (Burton) & Heidi Clarke (Kevin Burnett). Proud grandpa to Kristen & Brock and Natasha & Nathan (Victoria Cranston). Sister of Laura Middlebrook (Earl) & Uncle to David & Elaine Leeson.
Harold was born on Manitoulin Island to parents Ivan Clarke and Dorothy Ingram, moving to Sudbury in his later teenage years where he worked as a mechanic. Harold and Faye moved back to Manitowaning in 1970 where he worked for his father in law at Golden’s Propane, eventually taking it over. Harold enjoyed fishing, golfing, curling and driving around in his ’63 Ford convertible. He was a charter member of Southeast Manitoulin Lions Club serving as president for many years. He was a driving force behind the snowmobile races, smash up derby and many other community events.
In earlier years Harold loved to dance with his favourite dance partner, Faye. He also loved spending time with family and friends and playing a good game of euchre or poker. He had many friends and was always willing to lend a helping hand whenever he could. Cremation has taken place. Graveside service to take place at a later date.

Donations in Harold’s memory may be made to S.E. Manitoulin Lions Club, War Amps, MHC or a charity of your choice. Arrangements entrusted to Sudbury Park Lawn Cremation Services.
