Harry was a welcome daily sight at McDonald's & enjoyed talking with him on many occasions, a lot about our pets. He always lit up showing me pictures of his beautiful kitty & was so thrilled with his recent purchase of the Christmas kitty tree he got at Goodwill. My mom was a good friend of his wife's, & now they are happily reunited. We're sorry for the loss to his family.

To my grandfather, my best friend and my teacher. For the past sixty days I have watched you fight. I’ve seen your humor shine through even in moments of pain and struggle. You found a way to bless all of those around you and bring light to so many peoples lives. You were a living and breathing example of how someone can change their life. When I was born you said you would never drink again, that you never wanted me to see that person. You spent the next 40 days straight at my side in my parents home, and spent the next 25 years teaching me what it means to be a man. I may have held your hand and watched you take your last breath but I will never forget the lessons in which you’ve taught me. (2:54am)

Harry will be deeply missed by our family. He was one of the first neighbors I meet 15 years ago, and the one I grew closest to over the years. I will miss us hollering at each other over the neighboring yard. He could always bring a smile to my face and never hesitate to offer help, wether words of wisdom or sarcasmism. “Old man Harry” will be missed.
