Death Notice

MASON Surrounded by love, it is with a deep sense of loss that his family shares the passing of Dr. W. Harley Mason on Saturday, December 22, 2007 at Extendicare, London. Treasured husband and best friend of Marion for 65 years; loving father of Janet and Joe Hough; Barbara and Brian O'Donnell; and David and Linda Mason. A special grand-father to: Chris (Jennifer) and Sean (Lisa) Hough; Kelly and Ian O'Donnell; and Adrienne and Andrew Mason. Harley embraced his great grand children: Nathan, Ryan , Alyssa and Abigail Hough. Dear brother of Dr. Donald Mason. Dr. Mason literally helped hundreds of Londoners to smile through his dental practice from 1946 to 1990. He will always be remembered for his kind understanding of the human dimension of dentistry. Upon graduating from the Dental Faculty at the University of Toronto in 1942, Harley served in the Canadian Dental Corps both in Canada and overseas during the Second World War. In later years he found a calling as a leader of the 65th Scout Troup and in many roles with First Baptist Church. The family cottage was always a magical destination for Harley. Throughout his life Harley pursued a number of creative outlets including: the fabrication of jewelry; painting ; sculpting; and gardening. Harley embraced the mindset of the gardener and has nurtured the lives of his family and friends. Harley's harvest will continue to enrich the world. The funeral service will be conducted at the James A. Harris Funeral Home, 220 St. James St. at Richmond, on Sunday, December 23 at 2:30 p.m. by Rev. Sheldon Dyck. Reception to follow at the funeral home. Interment at a later date in Sanctuary Park, Port Elgin. Many thanks and smiles go out to the caring folks who worked with Harley: the Staff at Extendicare; Dr. James Shaw; Heidi; and Continuum. Love is eternal and life is immortal.
