Obituary of David Arthur Harris

On Tuesday Jan. 11, the man, the myth, the legend (in our eyes, and maybe in his) was reunited with the love of his life, Virginia. His greatest joy was his family. He is survived by his daughters Jocelyn (Stuart) and Karen, his grandchildren, Cayla (Jon), Tom (Megan), Kate and Luc, and his great-grandchildren Dylann, Bret and Reece. As many know, he was a teller of great stories, and loved nothing more than to talk about the accomplishments of his loved ones.
Art grew up in Drumheller, attended “Tech” (SAIT) and went to work for Calgary Power in Seebe, Spray and Calgary. He loved living in Canmore, and was very involved in community activities where he made many life-long friends.
Art spent 35 years with Calgary Power/TransAlta, later owned a consulting business in hydroelectric operations, and was a proud member of the TransAlta POWER retirees association.
He was also a proud supporter of the Calgary Stampeders, Ducks Unlimited, Wheatland Wildlife, the Alberta Children’s Hospital and the Legion.
Art and Virginia spent many years living at the Phoenician in Northwest Calgary. He will be remembered fondly by many, and the family will be hosting a PARTY at a later date. In the meantime, take a friend out for dinner, and pick up the tab in his memory. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to any of his favourite charities.
For every tear we shed, we have ten thousand reasons to smile.
