Harry was an industrious, hard worker his entire life. He loved to stay busy and always had hobbies. Harry’s latest hobby was his greenhouse, and he was proud of his bumper crop of cherry tomatoes.
Harry will be missed everyday by his family and many great friends. He was a member at the Moose Lodge in Prince Rupert where the staff had a soft spot for him. Harry will be missed by his family, and his friends with whom he gathered regularly.
