Harry will be remembered fondly by all who served him in his lifetime. He made many friends in our area and enjoyed most people. He also enjoyed sitting in the sunshine on the porch, waving at cars that went by. Harry is truly missed by his friends and caregivers. Rest In Peace Harry, we love you!

Please pass on my condolences to everyone at the home. Harry had a spark for life, the happiest of smiles, and how wonderful he lived his life among friends in his community. Peace to you all.

I will miss Harry's love of laughter and gregarious personality. My favorite memory of day he forgot his lunch, so I took him to Pizza Hut that day. He enjoyed it so much, he threw his lunch out the bus window for the following week hoping for another lunch outing. Rest in peace Harry.
