Sending our deepest sympathy to the family & friends of Harry...and thinking of childhood remembrances when we all lived on Isle Road, rode the same bus to Slippery Rock High School, etc.

To Harry's family, I am deeply saddened to hear of his passing. I know that he hoped to spend more time with you all. I knew him only for a short time and near the end of his life, but his passion for family and his keen wit and sense of humor are things that I won't forget about him. Thoughts are with all of you during this difficult time.

I worked with Harry on several jobs, the East Brady Bridge being one of them. He was one tough cookie & knew what he was talking about, and always held the Contractor to do the best they could. He always had my back and I learned a lot from him. So sad to read of his passing. Dan Rennard--SAI Engineering (Ret).
