HAARANEN, Antti (Andy) Armas 1941- 04-03 to 2007-06-18 - Passed away at the Foothills Hospital in Calgary, Alberta after a brief illness. Beloved husband and life partner of Diana. Loving father of Lynita (Darren Johannson) and Eric, both of Calgary, Alberta. Devoted Pappa to Téa, Liv and Eva Johannson. Beloved brother to Alpo (Elli) and uncle to Linda (Steve Foerster) and family and Sheila. Dedicated son-in-law to Henry Jakymenko and constant companion to his canine shadow, Cricket. Loving son of Vieno and Leevi (both deceased). He leaves many relatives and friends in Finland. His life long friend, Richard Kangas, and the gang at Leinala's will miss his quiet presence. Born in Perho, Finland, Antti came to Canada in 1950. A proud and dedicated OPP officer, Antti spent his retirement years promoting all things Finnish worldwide. His many years as a HAM radio operator allowed him to renew his fluency in the Finnish language and contact Finnish people around the world. As a charter member and past president of the Sudbury Suomi Lions Club Antti devoted countless hours in service to others. He then took on the job to represent Suomen Seura in the Sudbury region and beyond. As president of the Finnish Historical Society he was able to use his love of both history and genealogy to assist in the collection of data, etc. of local Finnish businesses and people from the past. This kind and gentle man's presence on earth will not soon be forgotten. Memorial Service will be held on Tuesday, June 26th, 2007 at 7:00 p.m. in the R.J.
