Mr. Burns, Coach Burns and mentor was my experience with Harry Burns from Fountain High School, and later to meet with him in Greeley. Harry was a great influence on my life and many others who were touched by his kindness and inspiration to do your best. Always encouraging and looking out for others in such a positive way. Truly a man who has made a positive difference in so many lives will be missed but never forgotten.

I worked with Harry for many years and admired the work he did with others so much. We planted flowers on the back patio of PsychCare together to create a peaceful atmosphere for patients. He made a positive impact in the lives of so many. He will be missed. I will never forget one of his favorite quotes, "And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than pthe risk it took to blossom." 🌸 Anais Nin
