<div itemprop="description">Victor (Vic) Taras Harris <br>February 8, 1922 - April 11, 2017 <br> <br>Our dear dad peacefully passed at the age of 95 to be happily reunited with his wife of 40 years, Mary (1990). He will also join his parents, Peter and Antonina Hawrysyshyn and 9 brothers and sisters. <br>Dad will be lovingly remembered by his daughters, Holly (Bruce) Wazny, grandson Jeff (Krista) and great-grandsons Koen and Everett; Vicki Harris-Clarkson (Ed); and Lori (Ken) Cruickshank and grandsons Kyle and Sean. He is also survived by one sister, Nadia Kozoris. <br>Dad was born in Winnipeg, served in the Royal Canadian Navy and was an administrator for the City of Winnipeg Water Dept. for many years before retiring in 1985. He enjoyed many travels and Hawaii was a favorite destination. After Mom's passing he enjoyed his Elderhostel trips where he participated in kayaking, cross country skiing and biking in Canada, Holland, France and the New England States. He was an avid cyclist and swimmer up to the time he suffered a stroke at the age of 87. Dad was a big baseball, football and hockey fan. He loved animals and had a passion for gardening, health and fitness. Although the last few years Dad was not as mobile as he wanted to be, he continued with daily walks, he never complained and always had a smile for everyone. We all loved his smile. <br>Our family would like to thank Betty and the staff at River Ridge Retirement Residence for helping to make Dad's 4 years there safe and enjoyable. We would also like to extend our thanks to the staff at Oakview Place for their excellent care these last few months. <br>Cremation has taken place and a private graveside service will be held. For those who wish, donations may be made to the Winnipeg Humane Society. <br>We love you Dad! A soul who lived so well remains forever near. <br> <br></div>
