A family Funeral will take place on Thursday 20th August 2020 11:30 at Durham Crematorium.
Due to the current restrictions only Harry’s direct family will be able to attend. Friends are invited to stand outside of the Crematorium to pay their respects but must adhere to current restrictions.
Donations in lieu of flowers have been requested to Alzheimer’s Research UK.
Our thoughts are with Harry’s family and friends at this sad time.

Harry’s daughter Tracy would love to hear from anyone that could share their memories of him. As well as being special for the family to hear, some words they could share in tribute at his funeral would be wonderful. Tracy can be emailed on :
