David "Harold" Errington of Lucknow, died Feb. 21, 2018, at Wingham and District Hospital at the age of 91. Beloved husband of the late Dorothy (McGee) (1986), and Helen (Barbour-MacDonald) (2011). Born July 23, 1926 in West Wawanosh Township, he was the son of the late Vera (Alton) and Victor Errington. Dear father of Penny Snobelen of Goderich, Nancy and John Hamilton of Lucknow, Donna and Rick Robson of Kincardine, and David and Laurie Errington of Auburn. Special stepdad to Donald (MaryAnne) MacDonald, Vera (Gord) Millar, Dayle (Jeff) Taylor and Marlene MacDonald. Missed by his many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Survived by his brother, Ross and Elaine Errington of Lucknow. Predeceased by his daughter, Diane Park; stepson, Doug MacDonald; and siblings, Violet Durnin, Jim Errington, and Jean Henderson. Harold’s working life was spent farming, working for the Dungannon Telephone Co., carpentry, and hunting and trapping. He served on West Wawanosh Township Council as a council member, as well as being employed by the township as drainage superintendent and building inspector. His love for the outdoors led him to 25 years with the Maitland Valley Conservation Authority as a director. His greatest hope during those 25 years was to preserve our resources for his grandchildren. He was a lifelong, and valued member of Dungannon United Church, and will be remembered for his kind, friendly nature.
