HARPER, Douglas Barr - It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Douglas Barr Harper on September 12, 2019, after some years of poor health.
Doug was born the second son of Allen and Margaret Harper in Irma (Wainwright), Alberta on the 23rd of November, 1928. The Harper family spent their early years on a farm before moving to Orillia, Ontario.
