So so sad to hear this. I knew of Harry through my brother who worked with Harry at Stafford Borough Council many years ago.
Harry was a laugh, and his great attribute was that he always made sure anything you told him about Stoke was always repeated several times to his fellow Stokies. He made you feel so knowledgable by doing this.
My brother always used to recall Harry having his lunch break in his council hut with his cup of Bovril in hand and shouting 'Bovril Beef', in his own inimitable style. He used to hate Wolves as well!
"This is the moment, it's Archer to Guptill, 2 to win! Guptill's going to push for 2 they've got to go! He's got to go to the keeper's end! He's got it!!! England have won the World Cup! By the barest of margins! By the barest of all margins!"
"Daniel Alfredsson, watched by Kunitz...Anderson heads for the bench, extra attacker on to even things up...Alfredsson heads to the net, ALFREDSSON SCORES! Ottawa needed a hero, and as usual it's their captain!"
Spent many an hour driving him to away matches. Orient away in the autoglass trophy springs to mind when he announced that he had seen a lion the previous day. Kept the car in stiches for the rest of the journey.
