Harry was a long time member at Sunnyside Baptist Church. He is warmly and fondly remembered. He posessed many talents and used them to bless others. He was always generous, steadfast in his gracious disposition, faithful, genuinely caring about others, someone who appreciated good music, and unwavering in his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

He worked hard and was always willing to do whatever needed to be done. He entertained us and could make us laugh until our sides hurt. He made everyone he visited with feel like they were the most important person in the city. Harry's life was a gift and a blessing to everyone. We look forward to when we see him again, and we will have all eternity to enjoy his company.
