HAROLD JOSEPH GRUNWALD
January 31, 1937-August 22, 2022


On August 22, 2022, Harold passed away peacefully in Winnipeg at the age of 85. During a work career spanning over 50 years, he mastered with ease many jobs ranging from upholstery to assembling heavy electrical transformers. He retired from Pauwels (Formerly Federal Pioneer Electric) in 2002.
Harold was happiest amongst his tools in his well-equipped workshop where he produced ingenious solutions and beautifully crafted objects that were shared generously with appreciative family and friends. If Harold was not out in the sunshine attending to his vegetable garden, then he was in his
workshop surrounded by various humming machinery, happily creating. His talented fingers always had to be doing, making, or fixing.
Harold was much loved by family and friends for his gentle nature and will be dearly missed. A private cremation has taken place. In lieu of flowers please consider contributing to the charity of your choice or to planting a tree in Winnipeg at www.treeswinnipeg.org
Our family is thankful for the kind and compassionate care given to Harold while he was a resident in the Tuxedo Villa personal care home for the six months preceding his death.
Special thanks to all the staff on nursing station 2 including nurses Shelly, Judy, and Debbie who provided Harold with such compassionate care.

Condolences & Memories (6 entries)

  • My sincere condolences to Harold's wife Pat Grunwald. - Posted by: Erin Moore (Family friend) on: Oct 01, 2022

  • Harold was a kind man and uncle. He enjoyed many things in his life, woodwork which he was incredibly skilled at. He made many generations of our family keepsakes over the years which we will cherish. He was able to continue woodworking in different forms as his health declined which is a testament to how much he loved it. He also had a passion for food, he loved growing it, cooking and baking it, and most of all eating it. Harold travelled across Canada over the years, he visited both the east and west coasts as well as many places in the U.S. I remember him taking a trip with a friend of his who drove a semi truck which he spoke of fondly. One memory that he spoke of that stuck out from that trip was the delicious bbq turkey legs they picked up at some point along the way. He enjoyed our family gatherings where he would enjoy the company of the many generations of our expanding family. I’m sorry we weren’t able to gather in the last few years so we could see you all together as a family Harold but you will always be remembered anytime we gather in the future. Rest In Peace. - Posted by: Jacob McConnell (Nephew ) on: Sep 06, 2022

  • Harold was a generous man of many skills and talents…from upholstery to woodworking of all kinds, vegetable gardening, cooking and baking, jam and jelly making, cycling and ATV-ing around the Niverville area, and creating an ingenious repair for almost anything. He and his nephew claim fame among family members for somehow making gravy from thin air. We will all miss Harold’s presence whenever the family gathers. Lovingly remembered. - Posted by: Geraldine Parr (Family) on: Sep 06, 2022

  • Harold was a gentle man who lived a quiet life. He had great patience and skill to turn out amazing wood works over many decades. Thank you for teaching me the beauty in wood. Happy trails to you Harold as your journey continues. - Posted by: Valerie Parr (Family) on: Sep 02, 2022

  • May Harold's soul rest in peace; He was a good friend, he will be missed my deeply condolences to all the family; Alcides Almeida - Posted by: Alcides Almeida (Friend's & Co- Worker) on: Sep 01, 2022

  • I have wonderful memories of sitting outside with Harold visiting and enjoying a strawberry sundae or eating watermelon or going out for coffee. We both worked at Federal Pioneer and had a lot of “old times” to recall. Harold was skilled at woodworking and made some amazing creations many valued at hundreds of dollars. I will certainly miss Harold and our wonderful times together. Rest in peace my friend. Walter Kulchyski - Posted by: Walter W Kulchyski (Friend) on: Aug 28, 2022
