Harry was a kind, giving and generous man with a huge heart who tirelessly helped everyone with any problems or issues they had. He always put everyone else first before himself. His love and expertise with any type of mechanical or construction project was second to none. He was always a huge animal lover and you always seen him with some type of tool in his hand with his dog “Blu” by his side no matter where he went.
