Harry was an Army veteran and retired from the City of Albion as the Deputy Director of Public Works and served as a Lab Courier for BBC Lab. Harry was a jack of all trades. If you needed something done, he could most likely do it. He loved technology and cooking Cajun food; in fact, he made the best gumbo in the world. He loved spending time with his best friend and favorite person in the world who he adored, his beautiful bride Kay. They enjoyed playing cards with friends, but their favorite time was spending time in God's word and praying every evening together. He adored his children and grandchildren and would do anything for them. Harry was of Cajun French decent and was very proud of his heritage. Harry recently started serving his church as an Elder and Sunday school teacher. He loved Jesus the most and it was such a joy for him to serve the Lord by serving others. He loved Jesus and wanted everyone to come to a saving knowledge and to have a personal relationship with Jesus.
