To Ryan, Emma, Hubert and the rest of Paul,s Family,
Geralyn and I are at a loss to find words that could help during this difficult time. Rest assured though that our many conversations with Paul, he always let us know how important each of you were to him.

We, as well as many others will find it impossible to fill the hole that he has left in our lives since his passing. Paul was one of a kind and we loved him.

Howie and Geralyn

I only heard of Paul’s passing yesterday . It tore a piece out of my heart. As junior golfers we played a lot and I truly admired him . He was always there at the provincial tournaments and his presence was seen among us all. I remember playing with him a lot in the big tournaments and he always praised me up when I hit a good shot. That meant a lot to me and helped with my confidence in the game. Paul passing will leave a big hole in the golf in Newfoundland and Labrador . My condolences to family and friends. I will miss him a lot.

Dear Ryan, Mrs. and Mr. Harnett and all the Family,

Dear Hubert and Emma
We were so sorry to learn of your loss of your son Paul. Please accept our deepest condolences. May God be with both in your loss.

So sorry to hear of Paul’s passing. He was a warm and wonderful human being. When I was in Corner Brook last year I saw him at the car dealership and we talked about everything under the sun for about an hour. I’ll always be grateful for that conversation. Much Love, light & peace to the Harnett family.

To the Harnett family. Paul was my first friend when we moved to Corner Brook in 1964 when we were backyard neighbours. In Lower Townsite. While we didn’t’ see a lot of each other in recent years I still cherish the memories of Horn and his siblings and parents. I went through the tributes on line and smiled as I saw a lot of our childhood friends contribute their memories. They say it all.

Blessings,, love and light I’m sending to Paul, to his precious son and family…I was so sad to hear this news and to see Paul’s face here brings me back to seeing him and I’m reminded of how Paul had such a deep sense of care, of others, kindness in his eyes, voice and heart, along with such a passion and zest for life. I will miss not running into him on our favourite rock in this world but I do most definitely look forward to meeting his spirit one day again beyond this life and in the next. Our deep felt condolences from Sherrie and the McLennon family…

Deepest condolences to Ryan and your entire family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this difficult time.

To all the Harnett family…

I was deeply saddened by Paul’s passing, and only hope it helps to know that my thoughts, and those of so many people are with you at this difficult time.

Although I think of Paul as a friend, I guess I knew him best through my brother Peter. Certainly I would have been sent out on occasion by our Mom to track them down, either for fear of harm or out of the way behaviour on their part. It always made for some good laughs later on in years.

I always enjoyed catching up with Paul at Blomidon or Marble when I was in town. He was a larger than life type guy and will be thought of often. My thoughts and prayers are with you now.

Mike

My deepest condolences to Paul’s family. Our families have been life long friends. I’m so very sorry.

So sorry to hear of Paul’s passing. We had so much fun growing up together, and our years with the progress club helping those less fortunate.. We wish Paul’s family our heart felt condolences and thank him for wonderful memories that will live in our hearts and minds all the days of our lives.

So sorry to hear the news of Paul’s passing. Freeman had the opportunity of working for Paul this past summer and he was a pleasure to do business with. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Harnett family

It is hard to believe it was only a few short months ago that we were down at Paul’s in Florida on our annual golf trip having a merry old time and like oft times over recent years in particular, being regaled and entertained by the Big Horn. It was always worth the price of admission for Dave, Greg and myself! His passing is a direct and heavy hit for all of us who were in his circle of friends and loved ones. He will never be gone from our minds. Sincerest condolences to the Harnett family. God bless you all.

My condolences to all. Saddened when I heard the news. How well I remember the great times skiing together and everything that goes with it.
Wishing you deep powder and sun wherever you are.

Very sad to here of Paul’s passing. I always enjoyed bumping into him at the ball field reminiscing and catching up on the whereabouts of family. My thoughts and prayers are with the Harnett family.

Donna and I offer our sincere condolences to the Harnett family on the loss of our beloved cousin. Paul will be sadly missed and gladly remembered by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.

I met Paul in 2004 when he strolled into my office a total stranger and 24 hours later we had a business deal done that for better or worse put Paul in the car business. Thoughtful and insightful guy with his pinky finger stuck in his mouth, I don’t think we ever had a conversation since that didn’t involve an update on Ryan and how proud Paul was of him.

Renée and I are saddened to hear of Paul’s passing. Condolences to the entire family.

My deepest condolences to all the family. Paul was a great friend all my life, all that knew him and myself will surely miss him. God bless. Chat soon Dave

We are very sorry for your loss. The only consolation we have is that Hubert Jr is gone to Heaven. God bless you always. Marion, John Marcinov & Family.

Myself and the Big Horn always loved ribbing each other, especially about golf. From bunker play to driving the ball and all points in between. One thing you couldn’t take from him he could drive the ball with anyone! Hey did I really say that!!Lol I always enjoyed our many conversations over the years they were worth the cash!! God speed my brother!!!

Our deepest condolences to Ryan and all of the Harnett family. We were saddened to hear the news of Paul’s passing. I had many conversations with Paul during our time with Honda regarding everything from the automotive business world, golf, friends and family and of course his son Ryan. Paul always had a smile and a story to share regardless of where we were. I will miss those chats. Rest in peace my friend.
Dan and Patti Goodwin

I was shocked to hear of Paul’s passing. I had the pleasure of golfing with Paul on several occasions he was a true golfer and a gentleman he used to say too bad u have. To Be a lefty

Heartfelt condolences to the Harnett family. Paul was taken from this life way too young. Surely he did enjoy life to the fullest, most likely when he was swinging a golf club or hanging out with his son.. His smile could light up a room. Rest in peace Paul. Your pain is over but those left behind will feel it forever.

My thoughts and love are with the family today. Words are so difficult to come by when a loving family is grieving the loss of a beautiful person. Rest In Peace Paul. You will be missed.

To the Harnett Family;
My heartfelt condolences and sympathy to all of you. No words can express the devastation we are all feeling with the recent news of Paul’s passing. May warm thoughts and wonderful memories of Paul help you through your loss in the days ahead.

Paul was quite simply my best friend. We maintained this close friendship for more than 50 years and shared many good times together. Memories of days spent on the golf course or having a drink and “debating” world events, are times I will cherish forever.

I’ll miss you Horn. In the meantime, keep a spot on the tee sheet open for me; and I’ll see you someday on the other side.

To the Harnett family. Sorry to hear of Pauls passing. Our prayers are with you during this difficult time. Always enjoyed seeing Paul by chance on my visits home. We would chat about our family and our kids. Will miss his wonderful smile and hugs.

I was always moved by his great love for you. Treasure your countless memories of this very special man, and know that he lives on in you. I am truly sorry for this deep loss. Many share in your sorrow.

I was very saddened to learn of Paul’s passing. My heartfelt condolences to all of the Harnett family. I have so many memories of Paul as our neighbour, Especially his open, friendly nature. He was especially kind to our parents in their later years and would saunter over for a drink on the deck whenever any of my brothers or I were visiting. There were more than a few late nights talking about life , our kids, politics, etc. But most of all I will remember the laughter and Paul’s great smile. RIP my friend. Catch you on the other side.

We are so saddened and alarmed at Paul’s passing. We spent the month of April on the same resort as Paul last year in Florida and got to know him even better than all the years growing up with him in Corner Brook. The smile he wore will be embedded in my head and my heart. Please accept sincere and deepest condolences.
