Alan Daniel "Al" Harroun, 72, of Springhill passed away on Saturday, December 1, 2012 at All Saints Springhill Hospital, surrounded by his loving family. Born in Springhill, he was the eldest son of Hazel S. (Hunter) Harroun and the late Daniel W. Harroun.
Al was a member of St. Andrew's Wesley United Church, Springhill. He was a long time member of the Board of Directors for the Perpetual Care Committee at the Leamington Cemetery.

Al was very much an outdoorsman. He had a beautiful camp in Cannan that was his pride and joy. He enjoyed hunting and trapping. He loved his family and enjoyed spending time with his nieces and nephews as well as his many friends. No matter the occasion, Al always had a story to tell and was happy to share it.
He will be sadly missed by his two sons, Daniel and Stuart, both of Springhill; his mother, Hazel (nee Hunter) of Springhill; two brothers, Frank "Nick" (Eleanor) of Springhill, and Barry "Mac" (Kathy) of Springhill; as well as several nieces and nephews and a large extended family.
