Harry, born in 1936, started playing lacrosse in Manitoba at the Kelvin Community Club at age twelve after buying an old beat up wooden lacrosse stick from the neighbour across the lane. He fell in love with the game and spent countless hours practising to throw and catch at the club or at a nearby parking lot. He was picked up by a senior league team in 1955, and from 1955 – 1957 played in the Minto Cup play-downs for Manitoba. The 1955 team advanced to play in the Championship series against Long Branch. After returning from attending university, he helped reform the senior league and organize minor lacrosse in Manitoba. He continued to play lacrosse and was selected to several local all-star teams in the late 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, before retiring in 1977. He is one of the founders of, and is still involved with, the Manitoba Lacrosse Hall of Fame. He is inducted in that Hall as well as the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame.
