R. Darryl Harness

July 22, 1970 - November 1, 2022

It is with heavy hearts we announce the unexpected passing of R. Darryl Harness. Darryl passed peacefully in his home Tuesday, November 1, 2022, at the age of 52. Loved partner to Angie for 8 and ½ years. Cherished dad to Alexandra, Andrew and Randi and stepdad to Gage and Bryar. Darryl will be deeply missed by his parents Roger and Joanne as well as his sister Debra (Nick). Uncle to Owen and Emersyn. Darryl grew up in Port Hope and moved to Colborne around 30 years ago. He was a big supporter of the community of Colborne and the proud owner of Darryl Harness Automotive for the last 10 years. Over the years, he was an avid dirt bike enthusiast, loved spending time at his family cottage on Rice Lake, and was best known for his creative storytelling and stubborn personality!

My deepest condolences for Angie and Family...Memories of Darryl will live on as he touched the hearts of many..As well fixed many wheels to get back on the road. When I worked nights and both times driving home from work and my car did not sound right I would drop by the shop and he always made time to take a quick look. Made his jokes of course. But was always fair.. He would shoot it straight and try to save you money as well... And the last time I saw him he still sat and made jokes and laughed at life. He will be surly missed..RIP Darryl... ❤️
