Ajay Partap said while he was saddened with the news, he reminded himself that death is ineluctable.

“We find it hard to let go of the dear and near, it’s a journey, under Harry’s leadership we enjoyed a full slate of premier football”.

Harry was a loyal servant of the FSLGV, said Ronald Singh.

“Harry was a huge support of Tanoa FC, who later took up official position with the club. RIP”.

Ayzaaz Ali said Harry was proud about his roots that during the Inter district championship he spotted in the Nasinu district jersey and cared less what district officials, fans and players felt about it.

“You would think as president he would be neutral but with Harry it was all about district loyalty more than anything else”, said the Lautoka fan.

“Harry will be remembered, condolence to family, my prayers be with you”.

Zain Ali, a former Nadi striker sent his deepest condolences to the family.
