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!"
"It's come away, for the Panthers to Matt Francis who buries it high glove! The Nottingham Panthers have won the League! It's been 57 years, they have waited and waited but the Nottingham Panthers return to the pinnacle of British Ice Hockey!"
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.
