Harry proudly joined the Wyoming National Guard during his senior year of high school. He came home from training and went to work for local farmers. He later went to work for Z and W Mill where he continued to serve his country for 18 proud years.
In 2001, Harry moved to Powell to be with his sister Linda and her family. He went to work for Northrup farms until he decided farming wasn’t for a long-haired boy. He later worked for ADM and loved it there until his death. He always called ADM his extended family and second home. Before his death, he reunited with his stepdaughter and grandchildren.
Harry is survived by four sisters: Linda (Grant) Martin of Powell, Hazel (Randy) Kanzler of Powell, Mary (Ronnie) of Torrington, Alice Hile of Torrington; daughter Cory Jean Venegas; grandchildren Jesus Venegas and Kierstyne Venegas of Witchia Falls, Texas; three aunts and uncles of Torrington: Vicki and Vern Nash, Reva and Skip (Charles) Huston, Peggy Moore; several nieces and nephews; special nieces and nephews Annie and Anthony Nading, Tami Warner, Billy Wood; great-nieces and nephews; his adopted family Doug and Melody, Stormy, Maynerd and Cortez Allen and ADM crew, all of Burlington.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents, parents and his great-niece Catie Bug.
