Harward lived and loved life to the full. He would light up the room, had a wicked sense of humour and always had a great story to tell. An innovative farmer, with an extraordinary capacity to problem solve; Harward had a passion and renowned ability for restoring the land, tools and engines.

Harward’s Christian faith was an inspiration to many as he devoted his life to serving God and those around him. With Winifred, his partner in life, Harward was generous and hospitable to people from all walks of life over many years.

Harward had a deep love for Winifred and his family of whom he was very proud. Harward faced death without fear. In his words “I know where I’m going.”

We are thankful for a life well lived.
