    We regret to advise of the death of Harry Hole on 3 July 2013 in Edmonton at the age of 91.

    Harry attended school at McCauley, AB and studied Engineering at the University of Alberta. A World War II veteran of the Royal Canadian Engineers, he completed officer training late in WW II but the war ended before his deployment to the Pacific arena. He served as the Honorary Lieutenant-Colonel (1993-1997) and Honorary Colonel (1997-2003) of 15 (Edmonton) Service Battalion.

    Harry enjoyed a successful career in construction with Lockerbie & Hole. He was recognized for his leadership and contributions to the engineering profession, charitable organizations, and innumerable volunteer commitments. Highlights included an Honorary Doctorate of Laws from the U of A, a Fellowship in the Canadian Academy of Engineering, and the Alberta Order of Excellence.

    A Celebration of Life will be held on Monday, 8 July 2013 at 2:00 PM at Holy Trinity Anglican Church, 10037 - 84 Avenue, Edmonton, AB.
