I met Harry Holme while covering harness racing for the London Free Press and as host of a Rogers TV show about racing called, Inside the Rail.
Everyone at Western Fair Raceway knew Harry, the track photographer, and he was beloved by all.
He was a special man. Kindness permeated through him. I never heard Harry say anything negative about anyone.
He was always positive, always smiling. And once he met you, he always remembered you. He made fast friends with everyone.
Harry passed away October 26 at the age of 84.
Harry’s funeral service is today at 11 a.m. at the A. Millard George Funeral Home.
