The Penney/Dawe/Green and other Extended Family Members:
Saddened to hear of Harris's passing. We often visited the Senior's Home in Fogo over the years when he and cousin Harry Decke shared a room.Even though Harris was generally a man of few words,we always engaged in great conversation with the two of them when we got together.Most often the conversations took us back in time,as Harry would regale us with
stories from the early days in Joe Batts Arm,on Decker's Room with cousins including Mom of course and Harris recalling
events over the years, and memories of everything from his days working at the "Union Store",to where we sat in the old United Church in Seldom.Religion almost always seeped into the conversations one way or the other.Even though a rather quiet,laid back individual, Harris was quite an active member of his church over the years.I can still picture him "taking up the offering",dressed immaculately and moving with what I remember as that "quiet dodge",never in a big rush! Our visits would always entail bringing a little treat(usually candy or some other sweet),and we also got in the habit of mailing cards for all occasions,to these guys and others at the Manor including our dear friend Bride.They never failed to mention this and even though a "little thing",we took great pleasure in doing this,what we call,"an old-fashioned,timeless gesture,that we still practice in this day of e-mails,texts and other forms of "communication".

To cousins and friends of Harris,we offer our most sincere condolences.We would have made every effort to be at the service today but sadly weren't aware of his passing until it was posted on the site just last evening,and circumstances well beyond our control prevent us from making it to the Island today.

Rest in Peace Harris! Fondly remembered by Dave and Melinda (Anthony)
