I worked with Harry in the blood bank at Methodist University Hospital. He was always lovely to work with, and will be missed dearly. As a tech much junior to him, I was lucky to gain some of the wisdom accumulated over a career that spanned longer than my entire life. To his family: I hope you know how many people cherished Harry. He was a well-loved coworker and friend whose absence weighs heavy on the hearts of those of us who worked with him.
My condolences to Harry's family. I have many good memories of working with him in the blood bank. I met him when he started in hematology . He was also a very good friend of my late husband who worked with him. He is going to be sorely missed
To Harry's family-I am truly sorry for your loss. I had the privilege of knowing Harry for 15 years. He was pleasant, hardworking and smart. I enjoyed the conversations that we used to have. Harry would always tease me about joining the wine club because he knew that I didn't drink. We would also talk about his past travels and he would want to know if I had visited the Dexter Kroger in Cordova lately since we both had ties to the area. I miss Harry and having those fun conversations. I pray that God will comfort the family during this difficult time.
I offer my condolences to the family, friends, and coworkers during this difficult time. Please know his presence is missed at Methodist University (Blood Bank).
To Harry’s family, I deeply send my condolences. I’m so sorry for your lost. I had the pleasure of working with Harry for less than a year. We use to talk about any and everything. I truly enjoyed our time together on 2nd shift. He was a hard worker and a great blood banker. He will truly be missed. Rest in Peace Harry B.
So sorry to hear of Harry Gs passing, He was a great friend when we were in school in Hughes Arkansas. We did many camping trips and concerts in Memphis. Thanks to FB we had several good conversations over the last few years. A wonderful person that will surely be missed. Rest in peace Harry G.
Dave & Nancy, so sorry to hear of this loss. You and the rest of the family are in my heart. I always loved seeing Harry G. at family parties, I always identified with his style of humor. May his memory continue to be a blessing.
Such sad news to hear. I worked with Harry for 36 years at Methodist University and was proud to have him as a friend. He was very smart and dependable and always kept things interesting by sharing his knowledge of so many subjects that interested him. We always shared restaurant suggestions with each other. Back in the good old days when we were young Med Techs working 2nd shift together, several of us would grab a few brews after work. He was a kind, open-hearted person who will be remembered.
To the Family of Harry Beasley, Please accept my condolences. I worked with Harry many years ago at Methodist on Union and have nothing but fond memories of him. It is very sad to hear of his passing.
To Harry's family: I worked with Harry for many years both in hematology and in blood bank at Methodist Hospital. I am so sorry for your loss. Please know that Harry will be terribly missed in the Methodist blood bank.
