Harry Saulitis, 1920 – 2020
Much loved brother of Rita and Ligita. Loved uncle of Inta, Bob and Peter and their families. A man who valued honesty and respect and worked hard all of his life. You will be sadly missed but never forgotten. Rest In Peace.
We wish to send our condolences to Harry’s family. Harry was one of the three amigos who met every Friday at Wendys in Gateway Plaza for a coffee before Harry left to live with his son in QLD. Now there is only one Amigo left after Trevor Nelson died in March/April 2019. We loved Harry’s dry sense of humour and perspective on life.
Best wishes to Harry’s family from Mike and Ali
Saulitis. Harry (Harijs)

A true working class man
A man l loved and respected who always told me the way it was
You got to 90 legend that was your wish
You have left so many fantastic memories
Our sincere condolences to Harry’s family as they mourn his loss. We live in the same street as Troy and Jenny in Mudjimba and were aware of Harry’s brave fight with illness. I was privileged to be able to take Harry to an appointment a few weeks’ ago and in that short time as we chatted, I gained the impression of a kind, considerate gentleman who adored his family and was very appreciative of their love and care of him. We had a few laughs and I told Troy later that it was such a pleasure to meet him. Harry will live on in our hearts with our memories of a remarkable man. RIP.
We knew Harry from when he married Beverly. He was well loved and respected. He had great character and a big heart.” Sympathy is with you in you time of grieving. Harry will always be with you in spirit. My deepest condolences to all your family during this dark time. Please know that our family is keeping you and yours in our prayers and thoughts.” Carol Sharpe (Lake )
Condolences to Harry’s family
A good friend ,neighbour & work colleague pat &kath giblin & family
I miss our coffee, world problem solving conversations, and construction site reminiscing.
Friday phone conversations to catch up on the local news.
Those who got to know you, found a gentle, caring, helpful person, underneath all that tough exterior.
Those who worked with you respected your knowledge and ability.
You have left your mark with the buildings and projects around the district, and with the people who were fortunate enough to know you.
Time for the nail gun to finally rest.
Geoff & Vicki
I was the lucky one to have you as my brother.
Precious memories will always be with us.
Your loving sister Rita uncle to Inta, Bob, Peter
I will alway play your favourite song White sports coat and a pink carnation
We wish to extend our deepest sympathies to all of Harry’s much loved family at this time. 90 years young and a remarkable life!
We have long admired your dry sense of humour, honesty and hard work ethic. We will miss our many phone conversations where we solved the problems of the world. We know how much you appreciated your last 8 months in the Queensland sunshine, surrounded by your family, going fishing and eating Troy’s fabulous cooking. In the past year we especially admired your determination and courage as you never gave up. When asked, “How are you Harry?” “Going like a bomb!” was the inevitable reply.
Ours prayers were answered when you died peacefully at home surrounded by your family.
Farewell old friend. Many happy memories of a remarkable life.
Hazel and Karina Creed
I met Harry 13 years ago, after someone gave me his number to ask Harry to do some renovations. After a few weeks Harry asked me where I am from. I said to Harry he would not know this small country in Europe. After a few minutes we looked at each other and realised we were born in the same country Latvia and the same city Riga. Since then we become best friends and always talked about Latvia. Many times I asked Harry to come with me to visit Latvia, but unfortunately it never happened. Harry, you brought sunshine and happiness to all those who were lucky enough to have you involved in there lives, you always be in our hearts. RIP Condolence to Troy, Brent and the family. Tania, John, Vanessa, Michelle and Dominic, Lucy and Genadey
Harry was a generous loving man, who would often go out of his way to help other.
I will miss making you coffee every morning Mr Pop. I will also miss all the talks we had about your life and current world issues.
Love from Mr Mop.
We love you with all our hearts.
Jen, Troy and Holly.

How lucky were we to have known him and so hard to say goodbye to .I loved him so much. We feel so very sad Much love from your younger sister and family. Ligi, Tim,James Megan. and her family.
Our heartfelt condolences to all of Harry’s family.
We can’t tell you how much we are going to miss our phone calls with Harry.
Since Harry went to Queensland last July we have heard all about his fishing, Troy’s great cooking, how he enjoyed the warmth and how lucky he felt to be with Jen, Troy, Aydan, Elijah and Holly.
Harry had a dry sense of humour and we can still hear him on the phone when we asked him how he was going. His response was always ‘going like a bomb’.
We know that in the last few weeks Harry was struggling but he fought to the very end and was stoic in his will to live.
It was an answer to our prayers when we heard Harry had passed peacefully in his sleep surrounded by his loving family.
We will cherish memories of a strong, hardworking man who lived a long life and made it to his 90th birthday.
Hazel and Karina.
Harry loved his sons and grandchildren very much so to hear he passed peacefully surrounded by them is great to hear. That’s exactly what he would have wanted.
Troy and Jen I’m so proud of you guys in the care you gave him and the dignity you made certain he retained right til the end.
Harry didn’t say much and I could only understand about every second word but he certainly had a dry sense of humour and I’m sure his witty observations will be missed by those who loved him. He was much adored by Aydan, Elijah and Holly and they will all miss him dearly.
Thinking of you guys,
Rohan, Carissa, Ruben, Ellie, Asha and Pippa
Great memories of a highly respected father and builder, I was taught by the best.
We all miss you being here,
since you went away,
but the happiness you bought us,
is remembered every day.
I will miss your cheekiness and your “heeellllooo Princess”.
I will miss your visits on a Saturday morning and dragging me out of bed and our sharing of chocolate!!
Lots of love, Tiger (Justin)
Condolences to Troy & Jen and Family on the passing of tough ol’ Harry. We have only had the pleasure of meeting Harry a few times as we knew our kids were way too loud for him. But the wonderful stories/adventures we have heard makes us feel like we know Harry so well. The regular calls to Hazel, has always kept us up to date and entertained. A funny man! It’s fantastic that Harry’s passing was where and how he wanted. He has fought a long hard battle, and is now at peace. All our love always, Francis, Jude, Jackson, Mackenzie, Tom, Ryan and Sam
