I just now read that Harry passed away. I want to take this opportunity to express sympathies. Harry was one of my bus drivers when I was a student at Boscobel Elementery School. He was very nice to me. I think he also reminded me of my grandfather Orville Brandes(who lived away for many years). I am saddened to hear of Harry's passing but he will always have special place in heart. Sincerely, Dana Dee Ferguson

Harry was the most wonderful bus driver when we were children. My brother and I both have fond memories. He always gave us treats at Christmas and the end of the school year....always sweet and kind. Prayers are with the family.
