He leaves to cherish his memory a sister, Monica (Tom) Mannarino of Medicine Hat; brother, Raymond Rieper of Medicine Hat; sister, Renee Williams of Klawock, Alaska; niece, Crystal Mannarino and her son, Drayden Kinniburgh; nephew, David (Chantelle) Mannarino and their children, Baylee, Shyanna and Blaze all of Medicine Hat as well as a cousin, Jorgen Kropius of Fort Macleod. He was predeceased by his parents, Walter and Annie Rieper of Vauxhall. Harold was born in Taber, on September 15, 1960, and was raised in Vauxhall where he attended Vauxhall school. He moved to Gleichen in 1989, where he lived and carried out his life long career. In September 1993, Harold joined the Gleichen RCMP detachment and became a Commissionaire spending over 25 years as a Police Guard. He loved his job very much along with all of the staff he worked with until retiring in December 2017. Harold also had a huge interest in lawn and garden care and created a side job caring for other people's lawns and gardens throughout Gleichen and area.

So sorry to hear about Harold. I was the operator at the Standard Waste Site. Harold took over from me in June of 2010. I always had a good visit with him when I

took my garbage there. R.I.P., Harold.
