Donna and family, I was so saddened to receive the news of Harry’s passing.

I was so fortunate to have gotten to know you and Harry while working so far from home and family. Being befriended by the two of you was a very special gift. I so enjoyed Harry’s talks about hunting and fishing and especially the advice he had regarding shotguns and shot gunning. And then there were the invitations to your home and those great meals. Harry’s good humor and laughter always made it such a pleasure to be in his company.

During one’s live (I’m now 83) one has many associations, makes lots of friends, and then there are the very special friends. I will very much miss my talks with my very special friend.

And Donna, while you are experiencing such grief, take solace in the knowledge that you provided Harry such joy, companionship and comfort. He was so fortunate to have you as his wife.

Donna - Donna and I were devastated to hear about the loss of our long time friend. From our times at City High, gatherings while at the University of Iowa and all the pheasant hunting one could cram into a lifetime, he was the best. Happy, talkative, and engaging made you want to be with him whenever you could. Our sorrow is with you and your family. Our memory is blessed with knowing all is right with Harry. May the grace of our Lord hold you tightly in his hands.

What a wonderful picture of Harry! His personality is highlighted by that smile. You have our deepest sympathy. We have so many memories and were blessed to know him. We especially remember dinners made up of the hunt or catch of the day. We'll always keep our memories near. May he rest in peace.

Donna and family,
My heart is so heavy today, especially knowing we will all be grieving in this new disconnected way. I know how much Harry loved you all - he was an all in guy and most of all with his love for his family. His energy and love of life are captured perfectly in the picture you've chosen - I could almost hear his voice and laughter through the picture!
I'm sure that he and Mom and Dad will be gathering soon for a cocktail and a vigorous discussion of politics! I can hear them now. It is hard to imagine he has left this world, but I know all of us who are feeling the sorrow of his passing also know we are better people from joys of his friendship. My deepest sympathy,
Ann Kappeler

I knew Harry through shooting together at Bi-State. Though we did not see each other real often, we always had great conversations. He had a passion for family, hunting/shooting and business. I consider him a good friend. Sometimes he wanted to talk of his son’s health, many years ago, and then more recently his own. Then he would shift gears and want to talk about a different shotgun he was interested in. No matter his troubles he was ready to laugh.

Harry was truly one of the good ones. I will miss our talks.

RIP Harry. Until we meet again.

I am so sorry Donna for your loss. Harry seemed like a very nice person. He didn't seem to mind waiting for you the day you had lunch with us in Lehigh. Glad he was patient so we could visit. I'm glad you two spent time doing things together the last year that you both enjoyed. Our "lunch bunch" sends you our sympathy.

My wife Michele and I are deeply saddened by the loss of our great friend, Harry.....What a great guy!.. Harry and I met in high school in Iowa City in 1964. We hunted, fished, ate, laughed, celebrated life for all these years together. Harry was one of my very best friends. A TRUE friend and a TRUE honest, sincere, fun person.

Donna, Eric, Clark, and other Family members have our sympathy from our hearts..

It is with great sadness to learn of Harry’s passing.

I have great memories of fall hunting outings and Iowa River fishing with Harry and Rex Brandstatter.

Whether walleyes or carp, rabbits, squirrels or crows. These outings were always an adventure with Harry!

My sincerest condolences to Harry’s family.
