Misener, Harold Francis – Aged 70, East Chezzetcook. It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Harold Francis Misener, at his family home on Wednesday, February 17, 2016. Harold was born, raised and lived his entire life in the Eastern Shore community of East Chezzetcook. Harold was a son of the late Edgar and Kate (Smith) Misener. During Harold’s lifetime he enjoyed the great outdoors including hunting, boating and walks on the beach. Harold loved the sea; fishing was his livelihood and his passion. Harold loved music – music was a family affair for the Miseners. Throughout his life he played instruments including piano, saxophone and bass guitar. As a young man, he was a member of the group ‘The Country Gentlemen’ which brought much joy and fun to many lives along the Eastern Shore. In recent years Harold loved entertaining during family gatherings and playing for his grandchildren Kate and Jack.

He is also survived by his sisters, Jean, Kathleen (Peter) Barteaux, Bernice, and brother, Allen (Ruth). Harold is survived by many nieces and nephews, brothers-in-law and father-in-law, Albert. He was predeceased by his brother, John (Jackie), brother-in-law, Bobby Gaetz and mother-in-law, Velma Rhymes.
