In loving memory
On Monday the 7th March 2022, we lost one of our most loved site supervisors.
Harry passed away suddenly after suffering a heart attack 1 week prior to his passing.
Harry was a much loved and well respected mentor and friend in the retail merchandising world and in particular the D.I.Y sector. Harry made his debut in the retail industry working for Homebase in 1987 where he served for 20 years in roles such as Store Manager and in the later part of his Homebase career in the Store Format team.
Harry then moved on to work for several Merchandising and Installation companies completing roles mainly working on Format Projects for B&Q. Harry was versatile and would do whatever role was required of him whether it be Site Supervisor, Retail Change Partner, Siers Supervisor or Team Leader.
Over the last 12 years Harry worked for Dee Set and most recently Bluestones One.
He will be sadly missed and we send our condolences to all of Harry’s family and friends.
Here’s what Bluestones One Director, Gary Lowe had to say shortly after Harry’s passing:
“We are all shocked and devastated by the sad news about Harry, he was one of the nicest most sincere people you could ever wish to know and will be sorely missed by everyone that had the pleasure to know Harry. I have personally known Harry for over 20 years and had the pleasure to call him a friend. When I met Harry all those years back in Homebase I was instantly drawn to his charismatic personality. I will miss him both personally and professionally”
Harry held strong family values and would always talk about his loved ones with pride, whether it be his wife Barbara, son Daniel, or (as he called them) his amazing grandkids. When he wasn’t working or spending quality time with his family, he would be following his home town football team, Liverpool FC, following them and supporting them through the good times and the bad. That was Harry through and through, whether things were going well in life, work or facing difficult times, Harry persevered and never gave up. He kept a smile on his face and kept on stepping forward!
Funeral arrangements are still being made currently and as soon as we have an update we will let everyone know when and where this will take place as well as the families wishes around making donations etc.
Thank You Harry for all you were to all of us.”
