    I was saddened to learn that Harry passed in 2018. He lived behind me about half a block away and when he’d walk to Turkey Hill he’d stop if he saw me out back working on something and we’d have good conversation. I first met Harry in 1992 when I had a store under the Denver Cut Rate called Alley Cats Custom T’s & Sweats and he would come in every week and we’d chat. My sincerest condolences to his extended family. He was a kind gentle man as I knew of him. He loved and missed his mother very much and he loved wrestling very much, he invited me to go along once. I realized he passed only because I hadn’t seen him for a few months and we were friends on face book but I hadn’t seen any posts from him either , so I went to his page and saw he passed away,I check Lancaster paper Obituaries daily online, I must have not seen or realized Harry’s first name was Elam. I didn’t realize he was sick and was in a nursing home.
