His 13 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren and a new arrival any day will also sadly miss Paddy. Paddy is also survived by his brother Brian (Jerry) Harrison and sister Margaret (Pete) Balding. He was predeceased by his father Patrick and Mother Barbara, and grandson Patrick Kevin. Paddy was a commercial fisherman for 54 years and lived in Qualicum Beach for 42 years.

The family would like to thank all those who helped Paddy and the staff at ICU at the Nanaimo General Hospital.
