I’m often mistaken for being the real Uncle Harry. In truth, that honor goes to my uncle, Harry Wilson. I was named after Harry. He was a dedicated husband, U.S. Merchant Marine, a 34-year veteran firefighter, public servant, friend to the community, and, most importantly, my favorite uncle.

I believe most of us have someone in our lives that had a positive and profound impact on shaping who we are today. For some, it’s a sibling, parent, close family friend, coach, or teacher. For me, it was Uncle Harry. When it came time for me to name the company, the choice was a simple one.

The essence of the Uncle Harry’s brand is celebration – to recognize and rejoice in the big and little moments of our lives. More importantly – and especially for me – it’s about celebrating those who play a positive role in our lives. I hope that my favorite uncle is representative of “Everyone’s Favorite Uncle”.
