Weary of reading obituaries and noting someone’s courageous battle with death, Harry wanted it known that, he died as a result of being stubborn, refusing to follow doctors’ orders, and raising hell for more than seven decades. He enjoyed foods of all kinds, libations, and obstinate until the day he died.
In lieu of flowers memorials may be made to the Temple Civic Theatre located at 2413 S. 13th St. in Temple, TX 76504 and Tablerock Amphitheater located Royal St. Salado, TX 76571. Arrangements are entrusted to Crotty Funeral Home & Cremation Services of Belton.
