It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Harold at the Saint John Regional Hospital, on June 5th, 2013 after a courageous six year battle with cancer. Born in North Sydney, NS on November 9th, 1960, he was the son of Edith (Robinson) and the late Harold MacAulay.
Harold is survived by his wife Marie of 15 years and daughter Mariève; his mother Edith; four sisters Wendy (Mike Murphy), Patricia (Paul Francis), Jennifer (Dave Deveau), and Ann (Jermaine Mombourquette); many nieces, nephews, uncles, aunts and cousins. He was predeceased by his father Harold, and his uncle Ben Robinson.
Harold graduated from Mount Saint Vincent University with a Bachelor of Sciences degree in Dietetics and pursued a Masters degree in Anthropology at Université Laval. He lived in New Brunswick for 19 years and worked as a Registered Dietitian in different hospitals.
Harold is remembered for his great sense of humour even when he was seriously ill and his passion for traveling, reading and writing. As Harold wanted to leave a legacy to his beloved daughter Mariève before he died, he wrote a children's book dedicated to her entitled “The Adventures of the Yappy Gang.”
