I had the pleasure of working with and "educating" Harry. As I was planning my wedding on July 5, Harry provided me with stories of his love for his wife and his family. In these moments of grief and those that will come, please take some comfort in knowing that his family was his all. I may have only spoken with him a handful of times but I will always remember him.
Samantha, his Pump Lady
I was Harry's massage therapist. He was truly my favorite person in the world. He was like a surrogate father to me. With his words of wisdom and his amazing advice Harry brought happiness to my life every time I saw him. He was an amazingly smart, kind, generous and funny man who loved his family more than life itself. He is already deeply missed. My prayers are w/ all of the family and I'm so sorry for your loss.
May Harry's memory be eternal+
I knew Harry through the martial arts school he trained in. He was a very friendly and humble person. He and I shared the common interest of tang soo do. He was one of the most committed practitioners of the art. he once traveled to Orlando, FL just to attend and support friends at the world tang soo do tournament. I will miss his friendship and his infectious smile.
