To a man who always had my back, always had a smile and made going to work a family affair. Harry had thousands of customers over the years that became his friends. He was the best cook at Marshall Pontiac and enjoyed sharing his efforts with us, as well as us enjoying eating them . As well as people, Harry had a deep love for animals . Annie, our golden retriever, always made a rush into the building, straight to Harry's office knowing a hug and a treat were waiting for her. We will all miss you buddy, the whole Marshall Pontiac family. Until we meet again, God bless.

I’m so sad to hear about Harry. He was a good good friend for so many years. I knew him to be the most generous, kind, give anything to people he loved and people in need. I will never forget all the coffees and biscuits from Hardee’s, the amazing peanut butter fudge at Christmas, his joking around with me, his undying loyalty to Marshall Pontiac and us for 50 years. He was family and always will be. We were so lucky to know him and have him in our lives. You are missed Harry. Rest In Peace dear friend.

I loved my Uncle Harry. Last time I saw him was in his home in July 2013 serving us dinner after my mom's funeral his sister Anna Watts. I have special memories of when I was a teenager and he would bring new records for me to play and dance together. I will truly miss you Uncle Harry. Rest In Peace.
