Obituary of Harold Irvine Whitehead

Please share a memory of Harold to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

With sadness, we announce the sudden passing of Irvine Whitehead on January 12, 2024.


Irvine was passionate about bull riding and spent many years on the Professional/ International bull riding circuit. Irvine had his share of bangs, bruises, medals and buckles for his accomplishments on the rodeo circuit.


Irvine’s work ethic was top notch.  He believed in showing up and doing a good days work.  He was seldom an idle man; and was always ready to lend a hand – no matter the task.  Irvine’s commitment to work safely everyday found him at industrial oil & gas, pipeline and hydroelectric generation projects throughout the Province.  He was very proud to work many years as a professional within the forest industry as a certified faller & he was loud and proud to emphasize his awareness and specialized skills as a Danger Tree Assessor and Faller!  He loved the challenges hand falling presented and found this work to be a rewarding and satisfying profession. 

A wake will be held Friday January 19th, at 5pm at the Aqam Gym. Funeral Service will be held on Saturday, January 20th, at 11am also at the Aqam Gym.

The Funeral Service will be livestreamed for those unable to attend in person.
