A Personal Message
Harry was a devoted husband,Father,Grandfather and Great Grandfather and a friend to so very many people.
He was loved by all who knew him for his cheerful disposition and kindness and his ability to recite poetry that transported the listener to the scene he was describing.
Harry had a great sense of humour and fun and loved being with his wife and family more than anything else.
When Jude, his only daughter returned from working in America Harry tied yellow ribbons around the trees leading into the village such was his joy and sense of occasion.
He will be ever remembered, forever missed but never forgotten
