Your father was much beloved friend and business associate of my father, Pinky Williams. I worked at Williams-Trull in high school and college summers and had great respect for your father. He was so smart and kind. I enjoyed seeing Harry from time to time while my father was alive and happy he could continue the business after my father's death.
You will miss him, but it sounds as though Harry had a good life surrounded by family and died while doing something he loved.
Please accept my deepest sympathy.
