Obituary of Harold Benjamin Andres
The gift of his heartbeat played with a symphony surrounded by the gardens at Ian Anderson House until Harold Benjamin Andres took his last breath Thursday, June 3rd at 9:45 am. There was a gift sent to us as a glimmer of hope to our future. Harold appeared in a dream to his brother the same morning he died, fully healed and about 25 years old, no longer in pain but wholly restored. To show us the proof, more than that to dare us to move and to open our eyes to the sky of our heavenly Lord. We choose to believe we will see him again in heaven some day surrounded by all who has gone before him and to all who choose to believe that we'll be safe in the hands of our Saviour and Lord. Harold will be deeply missed by his loving wife of 62yrs Beryl. His children Debbie (Wayne) Partridge, Pamela Cooper, John Andres, and Andrea (Ian) Elsasser. His grandchildren Kyle, Emily, Kathyrn, William, Nicholas (adored fiancé-Emily Thompson), Benjamin, and Nathanael. Harold is predeceased by his parents John G. & Ella (Funk) Andres, brothers Edward, Benjamin, and sisters Esther and Alice, son in law Kevin Cooper and daughter in law Holly (Hunsberger) Andres. He will be deeply missed and survived by sisters and brothers; Martha Williams, Elwin (Phylis) Andres, Don (Debbie) Andres, Helen (Claude) Bourque, Linda (Gary) Spence, Evelyn (Ian) Leach and many nieces and nephews.
