** In Loving Memory of Harry **
Harry is loved, missed and remembered
in the hearts of all who loved him
forever. Harry and his wife Evelyn were
very special to our Family. Harry was
a hard working wonderful man. He was
brilliant, funny, caring, down to
earth, friendly, outgoing man loved
by all. In approx. 1990 Harry and his
Brother In Law Eddy Wittrock sang a
Memorial song in Memory of his Mother
in law Minnie on video tape at a
Big Lake MN Carlson Reunion Picnic.
It was heartwarming. Harry, Evelyn,
Mother in Law Minnie, Sister and
Brother in Law Irene & Eddy Wittrock
traveled to Minnesota many years to
attend the annual Carlson Reunion
Picnics. We have many cherished memories
of the wonderful times we had together
at Family events. Harry and Evelyn
were very much in love. They were a
great couple who everyone adored.
Harry was born and lived in Illinois
much of his life. Our beloved Harry and
Evelyn passed away in Wisconsin.
Harry and Evelyn are survived by
children, many relatives and friends.

Harry was the owner of the Victor Gasket
Company, Burton Auto Springs, a Marina
in the McHenry area and possibly other
businesses, past bank owner. Harry's
Paternal Grandparents were the Burtons.
Harry's Grandparents once owned the
Burton Auto Springs. He and Evelyn once
owned a Lake Cabin at Coffin Lake in
Remer MN. Harry and Evelyn once spent
winters after retirement at a gate
community in Palm Springs California.
A cousin of Evelyn's reported that
Harry and Evelyn had a large home
with 40 acres at the edge of McHenry.
It included a golf course. ( more
like a mansion or mini mansion)
Harry was a very smart, successful,
honest business man. Harry got along
with everyone. The cousin (in-law)
who added this bio also consulted with
Harry regarding business procedures when
the cousin was a Mayor of a Twin Cities
area MN Town. Harry and Evelyn are
survived by many relatives including
their children.
