I would like to express my condolences to Mrs. Peterson and the rest of Harry’s family. I was fortunate to work with Harry at the Career Academy and Waukegan High School Brookside Campus. He was a very kind, patient man who taught me how to set up sound systems. When Harry was there you knew everything would be alright. He will be missed.
