Mr. Harold Tangen, age 92, passed away on Sunday, December 1, 2019 at the Cypress Regional Hospital, Swift Current, SK. Harold Lloyd Tangen was born on August 7, 1927 to Arnie & Selma Tangen at Stewart Valley, SK. Dad’s main love was family and was always there when you needed him. He always had a smile for everyone and never an unkind word for anyone. He loved to travel, was an avid golfer, and enjoyed many hours of playing cards. Dad loved music and his love of the piano entertained all of us at the various family gatherings. He had a fantastic sense of humor and could tell a joke with the best of them.
