Harry loved the game of golf and it brought him many great memories through the years that he played. He also loved to ski and learned to fly and truly enjoyed that for over 40 years. He was a quiet man in many ways but had a heart of gold and a gleam that sparkled in his eyes and a laugh that so many loved. He will be truly missed by many.
His love of his Lord and Savior was at the top of his list and he lived his life as a child of God. He and his wife are members of Tidal Creek Fellowship Church and he loved Sundays when he could be there and praise the Lord.
