H.SchwartzHarold William Schwartz of Hanover, formerly of R.R. #1 Desboro, passed away peacefully at McVean Lodge Residence, Hanover on Easter Sunday, April 5, 2015 at the age of 104 years.

Harold was born January 21, 1911 in Elderslie Twp., Bruce County and later resided on the family farm south of Desboro. The farm was purchased by Harold’s great grandfather, Jacob Schwartz in approximately 1870 and was sold to Harold’s dad, William Jr. in 1920. Harold purchased the farm in 1960 and ran the family farm until his retirement. In his spare time he enjoyed fur trapping, fishing, curling and horseshoes as well as loving to play a game of crokinole or cribbage.

Harold claimed his longevity in life was due to having an ounce of brandy and a teaspoon of peanut butter every night before bedtime.

Visitation will be held at Rhody Family Funeral Home, Chesley on Thursday, April 9, 2015 from 12 noon until the time of the funeral service at 1 p.m., a reception will follow. Spring interment in Chesley Cemetery.
