Obituary of Kenneth David Harrie

Kenneth David "Slicky / Riley" Harrie, 84 of Terence Bay September 12, 1936 - July 10, 2021 It is with heavy hearts, the family announces the sudden passing of Kenny, one of the original "Harrie" boys. He loved his family fiercely. A great time was always to be had when they were all together. You would always find Kenny in the centre of the dance floor or serenading us all with the spoons. He had a true love for Newfoundland music. Kenny loved to be in the boat with Dickie and Pops and often took over the captain seat at every chance he got. He also loved to climb up on the bow and tell you where the shoals were (whether you needed him to or not). Over the years, anywhere you saw Dickie you saw his sidekick Slicky! If the wheels were moving, Slick was aboard. From trips to Point Pleasant Park, hunting, and oh the many, many trips to Tim Hortons and coming home late in the night from sharing many a laugh and stories with friends. (And we all know Slick, he sure could tell the stories and was always up for a laugh). He also loved to be up at the camp with his entire family. He was like Evel Knievel going through the mud on his four-wheeler he was not a typical senior in his late 70s even into his 80’s. Kenny's favourite saying was “I may be old but I'm not cold” he truly lived life to the fullest! Kenny is survived by his loving daughters, Tammy, and Sheila; and cherished grandkids, Daytona, Andrew, and Brody; as well as his great nephew, Brayden who he adored and always had to mention his name asking, “how’s bubba?” Kenny has a large loving family including his brothers, David, Larry; and sister Beaty; his nephews; nieces and many other extended family members and friends. There is no one that met Kenny that did not love him. He was truly one in a million! Kenny had a very close-knit loving family. He was predeceased by his parents, David and Nora; brothers, Gerald, Stewart, and; nephew, Jason. The family would like to extend a huge thanks to Beaty, whom Kenny lived with over the years before he moved into Maplestone. We would also like to thank Maplestone Enhanced Care for the love and care they showed Dad the last couple of years. As per Dad's wishes and covid restrictions the family will be having a private burial service. “Slicky you’ll always be missed and never forgotten.”
