In Celebration of

Rae McNair Harrison

March 18, 1931 -  November 19, 2022

It is with great sadness that the family of Rae McNair Harrison announces his passing on Saturday, November 19, 2022 at the age of 91. Rae was predeceased by his wife Ruth after 67 years of marriage, his parents and 5 siblings. Rae is survived by his loving children, Jeff (Natalie) and Sue (Steve). He was the very proud Grandpa to Alex and Kyle.

Rae was born and raised in Ripley, Ontario but decided at a young age that farming was not for him. Moving to Toronto, Rae obtained his CA designation in 1955 and was employed with Imperial Optical for over 25 years until he decided to venture into private practice. In 1983 his son, Jeff, joined him forming Harrison & Harrison Chartered Accountants. One of Rae’s proudest moments was when his daughter Sue joined the family business.

Rae was a businessman through and through as he also obtained his real estate broker’s licence and then partnered with a family friend in the insurance business after obtaining his insurance broker’s licence. In his spare time, golfing was his passion and Rae was a member at Islington Golf Club for 67 years.

A visitation will be held at Turner and Porter, Peel Chapel, 2180 Hurontario Street, Mississauga on Saturday, November 26, 2022 from 3-6 p.m. Cremation to follow. If so desired memorial donations can be made to JDRF Canada, Toronto East Rotary Club Foundation, The Dorothy Ley Hospice or to a charity of your choice.
