Harry was a lovely man. I know my mother, Virginia Walden, thought the world of him and she appreciated his company and many kindnesses. He was an easy guy to like. Even my daughters, who knew him very little, were clearly sad to know that he had passed on. He served his country and community as a career firefighter. Our thoughts and prayers are with Bev, his wonderful wife and partner, and their family.
