Uncle Harry was such a great ambassador to the Balding family. His life epitomized all that was dear to his parents. He was always gracious in his relationships. No matter the occasion, he always had a smile, a hug, and a kiss for you when he greeted you. He wanted to know how you were and what you had been up to. He was loyal to his family to a fault; whether entertaining, visiting, or sharing a story he always made you feel loved and appreciated. Most importantly, he was able to be the man he was because of his relationship with his Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. His thoughts were never far from a story of the most recent way God had shown His love to him and how "He didn't deserve it." Thank you Uncle Harry for carrying the torch of our family and our Lord so faithfully!

Ann and Harry's whole family, please accept my thoughts and prayers for your loss. Harry was a fine person and a good friend and so were you, Ann, my classmate at TRHS. It was always so good to see you two at class reunions although we did not live in close proximity over the years. I would like to give you a warm hug right now; God bless you.. Love, Marian

To his dear wife Ann, siblings, children, and grandchildren. Please know you have our deepest sympathy as you mourn the earthly loss of your beloved Harry. His fruitful, giving, and inspiring life may have concluded on earth, but rest assured he is at peace with the Lord and his spirit lives on eternal. While his sudden absence in your daily surroundings is so painful, be confident that his love for you will never fade and God has prepared a wonderful place for Harry in his heavenly kingdom, where we can all reunite someday. I remember Harry's concern for my own father who passed last month. Despite his own hospitalization and illness, Harry phoned me to inquire about my father's condition. He was that kind of man-- someone who placed concern for others before self. May God provide you solace as you grieve, and peace in the knowledge that God's love for you and Harry is everlasting.

Brad Broome left a message on May 13, 2021:
Worked with Harry on many quality issues, and will never forget the comment at a MTY POE....."They are playing golf, while Rome's burning". He taught me so much as a young PI manager dealing with many people in all facets of the company, that I will never forget. From the automotive quality meeting blistering to all delivery issues from the finishing plant managers. He was respected and taught me the finer points of problem solving, and I deeply respected him, as well as all others through out the business. I will always remember him helping me and others when Mr. Milliken asked Harry if he was aware of the issues, and he would say "Yes Sir Mr. Milliken" , and the respect that was issued, and the conversation was complete.

Harry Balding was one of the kindest and most caring men have ever known. I never heard him say an unkind word to or about anyone. He loved his God, his family, and life. I thank the Lord of the time our family was able to spend with Harry and his family. He is already so missed.

I knew Harry as a loving husband, father and grandfather. His example as a devoted family patriarch will live on for generations to come. Harry’s love and devotion was always worn on his sleeve. From the impassioned prayers and remembrances at family events to his kind and encouraging words. He will be missed dearly by those who loved him. Good bye for now Mr Balding.

Harry was a passionate and loving man. He was dedicated to his home family and his Milliken family. Harry was a leader in our Company and could bring down the wrath when needed but he never parted without a passionate word. He taught me as well as others about quality in life and the yarn we made. He will be greatly missed.
