HAROLD BERNARD LUROSS (published on February 28, 2009)

HAROLD BERNARD LUROSS August 19, 1916 - February 25, 2009 Harold Luross passed away suddenly on Wednesday, February 25, 2009. Born in Fort Qu'Appelle, SK, he attended school in Semans, Viking and Indian Head. During his high school years he apprenticed at the local drugstore. He then farmed in the Atwater area for five years before joining the RCMP in 1940. Postings included Virden (where he met his future wife Dorothy Timms), Brandon, Winnipeg and Beausejour. In 1960, he received his commission in Winnipeg and then transferred to Edmonton, North Battleford, Peace River, and back to Edmonton. In 1975, Harold finished his 35 year career in Winnipeg as Chief Superintendent. He is lovingly remembered by his wife Dorothy of 62 years; children Bob (Dan and Carmen and great-grandson Koven), Anne (Erin and Allan, Joel), John and wife Nancy (Jessica and fiancé Shayne Dueck, Sarah, Tamara and Christina). In his leisure time he enjoyed extensive travelling, gardening, hunting and fishing. Over the years he was involved with Rotary, Masonic Lodge and the Shrine Club. As all three children reside in Saskatoon, Harold and Dorothy sold their home of 33 years in Winnipeg and moved to Saskatoon to be close to their family. His family meant everything and was always a priority to Harold. He especially enjoyed the many family get-togethers - usually over a meal. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him. A Memorial Service will be held on Wednesday, March 4, 2009 at 2:30 p.m. at Hillcrest Funeral Home (East on 8th Street, turn right before rail crossing). Interment will take place in Atwater, Saskatchewan at a later date.
