Harry loved playing and watching sports. He attended Bethany Bible Institute, Hepburn, Sask., for 2 years. He sang in octets, quartets and choirs at school and church. After 3 years of driving gravel trucks with his brother Ben, Harry farmed with his brothers in Glenbush, Sask. In 1977, he completed a real estate course in Saskatoon, but soon realized this occupation wasn’t a good fit and returned to the farm. He took pride in his crops and John Deere equipment. Harry maintained a strong faith in God. He taught and preached at Glenbush MB Church. His health began to deteriorate in 2013, and he was diagnosed with abdominal mesothelioma. After his 2014 surgery, he brought in his harvest, but by fall 2015, the cancer returned. Harry encouraged all with his belief that God knew what he was doing. His faith carried him through the difficult months.
