    Harry was my supervisor when I worked for CB&I as an intern the summer of 1980. He was a wonderful mentor and a great inspiration to me. It was always a pleasure whenever I caught up with him at church during visits back home. He was a great example of a truly good man and will be sorely missed. My best wishes go out to his family and all those who were dear to him.
