All of us here at Daily Express remember Harry with fondness. I knew Harry for many years and always enjoyed our working relationship. I think I will always remember him at the Safety Banquet - even after he retired he was always there. He will be sorely missed this year, but I know he will be there in spirit. All of here at Daily Express send our condolences to his family. We will keep Harry alive in our memories.

Harry and I started working at Daily Express in 1976. I was the switchboard operator so I spoke to Harry often when he would call
in. We established a good friendship and had many wonderful conversations. The last time I spoke to or saw him was in 2017
when I stopped in to see him at the assisted living facility. I am so glad we had that time to visit. RIP, Harry. God Bless!

So very sorry for the loss of Harry. I was one of his nurses at two different facilities - he had a great sense of humor. I loved his trucker jokes. And his stories of driving. I met Harry in a low time in his life - I tried to ease the pain every time I saw him. Yet he made an impact on me. I was thinking about him the other day - he popped into my head. Now I know why. He came to say goodbye. My condolences to his family and friends. May he be at peace in Heaven with a rig and his wife. God bless.
