Harry worked faithfully as a coal miner for 42 years ending as a General Mine Foreman at Harris #1 mine. He was an avid fisherman spending time at Smith Mountain Lake in Virginia. Harry had a passion for riding his tractor mowing grass and grooming his lawn, raising chickens that produced Blue Ribbon eggs, deer hunting, feeding his pig Denzel sweets and petting his loyal dogs Weego and Diesel. Everyone who met Harry was left with a smile over his witty jokes and sarcastic comments. To have had the pleasure of knowing him was a blessing, but to have been a part of his life meant he'd give you the shirt off his own back, just no tip $.
