I remember Harry fondly at the Pike house in Austin. He raised some fine sons, two of which I am pleased to know. Ninety-one is pretty great so count your blessings as you miss him. All my best to Bill and Alan. Phi Phi K A.

Harry and Charlotte Gump are faithful and active members of our Sunday School class, the John Wesley Bible Class at Highland Park United Methodist Church in Dallas, TX for over 20 yrs, and Harry is a past president of the class. To God be the Glory for Harry's lifelong witness and service to his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It has been an honor and a privilege to have known Harry for many years, and his presence will be sorely missed by all in our class. Although the sorrow of his passing is fresh in our minds today, we rejoice in the knowledge that he is now enjoying his eternal reward as he is welcomed and honored by his Lord Jesus face to face! Thank You Harry, and may God richly bless you and your family! You have left a Godly legacy to those of us who remain and we greatly appreciate all that you have done and stood for!

When I was growing up, I was frequently asked if I was related to "the Gump boys," and I would always proudly answer yes. Uncle Harry was the baby of the four and the last one to go home to Heaven to rejoin his brothers and parents. He left a wonderful legacy of love, compassion, and Christian character for all who knew him, but especially our family. I love you, Uncle Harry.

I never had the opportunity to meet Mr. Gump but it seems that everyone who knew him had only the highest regards for this gentle soul. The quality of his family tells me that he was an excellent father, grandfather and friend. May he rest in peace.

We know Mr. Gump must have been a wonderful man as evidenced by the compassionate soul he nurtured in his daughter, Mary. Our prayers are with your family as you celebrate his life.

Mr Gump was a great mentor to many of us.

When I was growing up, I was frequently asked if I was related to "the four Gump boys," and I would proudly answer that I was. My dad died in 1956, his brother Bob in 1957, so the last two, Uncle Harry and Uncle Dick were like fathers to me. Uncle Harry was the kindest and most loving man in the world, and I will miss him and his big smile so much. It gives me comfort to know that yesterday there was a great reunion in heaven when all four boys and their parents were reunited for the first time since their parents were killed in a car wreck in 1929. Thank you, Uncle Harry, for the legacy of love you left all your family.

Uncle Harry was as fine of a person that I have ever met.

As a partner in business with my father and uncle, Max & Fred Ligon, Mr. Gump was highly respected in every way. He was a great boss and a wonderful family man.

I will always remember his smile, his wit, and his kindness. He was a great uncle!

Uncle Harry was my Dad's younger brother who always had a smile and loved practical jokes. My mom loved to tell the story of Uncle Harry calling her pretending to be my Dad and saying he had just lost his job! He had a great family life and career after losing his mom and dad when he was a little boy. At age 91, he had a good ride and we will miss him. I can envision the 4 Gump boys now rejoined with their parents for the first time all together since June of 1929, when their parents were killed in a car accident. All 4 boys made it through college and were great citizens, husbands and dads.
