Uncle Harry you are tremendously missed already. You welcomed me into your family the first day Jack brought me over to meet you and Aunt Joy. You were a great uncle to Jordan your co-captain.
We will miss you and our visits up to see you. It definitely will not be the same but will always continue our visits.
Jordan already said he will miss driving the boat with you and watching TV with you.
You taught Jack alot and he will miss you.
Love you always

Harry and I met just a few short years ago and grew into the best of friends! He came to our St Helen Carvers to learn a little more on wood carving, he not only became an excellant carver but became the best of friends with all of us. His first year here in the club I asked Harry if he would like to go to our place in the Upper Peninsula for that years deer hunt! You would have thought I gave him a million dollars. All I can say the man was a special person and would do anything for anybody! He loved his family so very much ,and would talk of them everytime we were together! He was here on earth for a reason and that was to show his love and help all that needed it!! So Very Special Man! You'll be missed my friend ! Love Bob & Dee

You took me in as your own and raised me with your beliefs and morals. I cannot thank you enough for being my father and grandfather to my boys. You were the first one to hold Jonathon and trust me when I say he is feeling your loss just as much as I am. You were taken from this world much to soon and it saddens me that you won’t be there to see the grandkids grow and become apart of this world and have children of their own. I will always be thankful you were my dad, you chose me and I chose you and we will forever be bonded as father and daughter. I remember the last words you said to me and I want you to know that I will keep my promise.....keep your eye on all of us down here we tend to screw things up when you’re not around...lol I love you more than I can even explain and my life will never be the same with out you in it....I love u dad and I can only hope you knew how much.
— Your loving daughter, Dawn Cline
Uncle I miss you and I’m going to miss you for the rest of my life, you were the perfect uncle you taught me so so much over the years that I’ll carry with me for the rest of my life and I’ll be a better person because of all you taught me. You meant so much to so many people and to say you’re going to be missed in so many ways by so many of us is an huge understatement!!!.........We always had a wonderful relationship and got along great because we shared a lot of things in common we even lived together for 3 years which I loved every second of it!!......I’m going to miss you uncle I truly am I love you with ALL my heart and soul. Please watch over every persons life you touched and keep us all safe again I love you and Please Rest In Peace Uncle Harry. So good bye for now and see you later on down the line when you’re meeting me at those pearly gates!

You will be missed by our entire family Harry! You were an Uncle to all of our children. I am so sad that we never took the time fo the love that we had for over 40+ years. A silly disagreement ,stubborn and pride kept you Dan and I apart. I love you as a brother, you are forever in our hearts. Fly pain free . I'm so very sorry for his passing Joy! Much love, Deb & Dan R.I.P. Harry
