Harry Guabelly of Lawrenceville, Georgia died on Friday, May 13, 2016 at the age of 62. Harry was a true native Atlantan born at Georgia Baptist Hospital on December 31, 1953, to Harry Guabelly, Sr. and Lillian Reynolds Guabelly. Harry is survived by his wife of 30 years Linda Darby Guabelly; his sister Harriet (Bunny) Blume; brothers-in-law Charles (Chuck) Blume and Bruce Andrew Darby; his niece Stephanie Strobel;his first cousins Lynn Hardegree and her husband Craig Wakins, Bill Hardegree and Patricia (Patty) Leonard and her husband Don Leonard and their children Donny and Mary Lynn. Harry grew up on the southside of Atlanta and attended Sylvan High School. He worked various jobs during his lifetime; but, loved doing his own business "Mr. Tweets". He was very creative and enjoyed exhibiting his wildlife habitat boxes at numerous arts & crafts shows in the metro area. Mr. Tweets was proudly associated with Bluebirds Over Georgia and The Audubon Society while his business was in operation. Despite Harry's efforts to keep his business going, renal cell carcinoma developed in year 2000 and eventually wore Harry down with a steady progression of reappearances and eventual metastatic disease. Many thanks goes out to all the many healthcare personnel that administered and supported Harry throughout this ordeal. Harry had many friends and will be greatly missed by all. Linda will keep his love in her heart and cherish his memory forever.

  3. You will be missed, it was great to have you as a part of my life as we grew up in the Caribu. Those were great memories. RIP

  4. I carry Harry in my heart with my treasured memories of our time on this earth together. A sweet and kind soul who left us too soon. I will see you soon my friend.

  5. Harry was my best big brother, we called him brother most of our childhood, he always called me Pokey. I cannot remember a time when Harry and I were not together, either in weddings or at movies when Aunt Lillian and mother would drop us off and go shopping at Greenbriar Mall or going on my first date (double date) with Harry and he assuring Uncle Harry we would be careful and home on time. We had a special love for each other. I will never forget the phone calls that began with Pokey, Pokey, Pokey, this is your cousins Harry!!! They are saved on my phone. I know Linda was heaven sent to Harry and I believe my Aunt Lillian was overseeing that meeting. My heart is broken but I know we will see each other, only God knows when but we will. I love you Brother!!!!

  6. Aunt Linda, so sorry about Harry. It has been quite a while since I have seen you all but I have some good memories of staying at your place when I was a kid…and of you and Harry taking me and the band (people you never met before but treated like family anyways) out to dinner when we were in town. All the best to you from me and my family.

  7. Linda,
    I am so sorry to hear of Harry’s passing. I worked with you when Harry was diagnosed with renal cancer and am sad to know that he still struggled with it all these years. My acquaintance with Harry was brief, but I remember him to be such a funny, kind and gentle man. My heart goes out to you.

  8. Linda, so sorry to get the phone call from Pokey about sweet Harry. It’s been a really long time since we have seen any of Betty Jane’s family, but have wonderful memories of us being together. May God give you peace in the days, weeks and months ahead.

  9. Linda, We are heart broken over your loss. Harry was one of the best people I ever knew. We have been friends for over 45 years. He was one of the few I stayed in contact with. He was there for me through some really bad times of my life. He was truly a great friend. I will miss him!!

  10. So very sorry to hear of your loss.
    May the God of omfort continue to
    Furnish your family with peace and hope
    During this difficult time.
    John 5:28,29
