I worked with Harry for a number of years at ISU and found him to be a quiet, kind man with a smile on his face. I am so sorry for your loss.

Harry was a very special person. Never a cross word to say about anyone and always a smile on his face. He was a funny and gregarious human being. Harry will be missed by all who knew him. Special prayers to his family at this time of need. Godspeed Harry. Fly with the Angels.
