He was given the lifetime achievement award from the International School of Hydrocarbon Measurement in '08 and served as its Chairman in '09. After a career in Calgary in oil and gas he and Joyce retired to Clearwater BC where he kept busy making new friends on and off the golf course, volunteering with both the Clearwater and District Food Bank and Royal Canadian Legion as well as generally helping out anyone who needed a hand with nearly anything.
When that wasn't enough to keep him busy he went back to work contracting with iMEC. Harry remained an active member of the Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints serving as the Clearwater Branch President.
