PURVIS, Harry Edward Passed peacefully at the Rosslyn Retirement Home on Friday, July 19, 2013, in his 90th year.

He will be sadly missed by his nephew Barry (Dorothy) Crombie, Kelli-Ann Crombie-Portigal, great-great-niece Taylor and great-great-nephew David. Harry was considered by many to be "the expert" on movies and combined this knowledge with a great sense of humour into a successful career as a writer, writing for Films in Review, Mad Magazine, Playboy, Variety and retired as movie editor from T.V. Guide. He was a director of the Toronto Film Society and a frequent guest on C.H.M.L. The family wishes to thank Christine and her staff at the Rosslyn for their care and kindness to Harry. In keeping with Harry's wishes, cremation has taken place and a private interment will follow. Friends are invited to join the family for a Celebration of Harry's life between 1 to 4 o'clock, at 35 London Street South, Hamilton, Sunday, July 28th.
