Harry Malcolm Dunfield, 71, of Petitcodiac passed away Saturday, May 16, 2020 at the Saint John Regional Hospital following a sudden illness.
Born in Anagance, he was the son of the late Robert and Ella (Bustin) Dunfield. Harry graduated from Petitcodiac Regional High School and spent his career as a pipefitter with CNR. In retirement, he continued his trade of plumbing throughout N.B. A member of the Petitcodiac Golf and Country Club, he enjoyed time with his friends on the course or enjoying a friendly game of cards. Earlier in life he played hockey and remained a true fan. Harry was serving as Treasurer with the Anagance Cemetery Association. Harry was a courageous ten year survivor of Myelodysplastic Syndrome.
Harry is survived and sadly missed by his wife of 50 years Bethany (Rouse); cherished daughters Dawn Dunfield-Whitters (Tim) of St. Andrews and their children Claire and Mackenna; Lesley Dunfield-Bartlett (Dave) of Ottawa and their children Evelyn and Noah; sister Margery Prosser (Gerald Alward) of Havelock; brother Kent Dunfield (Susan) of Petitcodiac and several nieces and nephews. In addition to his parents, Harry was predeceased by his brother Chesley and brother-in-law Allison Prosser.
A private family graveside service will be held at the Anagance Cemetery. There will be a Celebration of Life at a later date. Arrangements are in the care of Salisbury Funeral Home, 3350 Route 106 (372-4800).
If desired, in lieu of flowers, donations to the Anagance Public Hall or a charity of choice would be appreciated.
