Fitzpatrick Statement on Passing of Harry Fawkes

Mar 13, 2013


WASHINGTON, DC – “I am incredibly fortunate and honored to have known Harry Fawkes.  On a personal level, his friendship and advice made me a stronger public servant and a better person.  In his role as Republican Chairman, Harry was selfless and magnanimous; everything he did was to the benefit our County where he was born, married, raised his family, started his business, served his community in elected office.  Harry was recognized as an effective leader and decision-maker because he led the party based on principles and worked unselfishly to find common ground.  His only request of me as a public servant was to take care of Bucks County. We will never see another like Harry again.  Our community has lost a giant of a man - strong in stature, in principle, in humility and graciousness.”
