Boone Jackson Harry

Train death victim identified

Agassiz resident Boone Jackson Harry killed Feb. 28 at approximately 5 a.m.

His smile is what those who knew him well remember the most. Boone Jackson Harry had an infectious smile that would brighten the days of those around him.

“He had a smile that lit up the room,” shares Brenda Major, Harry’s boss at Modern Tire. “A beautiful smile.”

Harry was quiet, respectful and a “very good” employee at Modern Tire, where he’d worked for the last nine months. He wasn’t just an employee to Major. He was like family. He would come to the Major’s house to watch hockey or for a barbecue. He came on boating trips with them and just a couple weekends ago, they went out to the river for a bonfire.

“It’s a huge loss” for the team at Modern Tire, says Major. “Words may not suffice to express the heartfelt sorrow we are all feeling.”

According to the BC Coroner’s Service, Harry was struck by an eastbound CN Rail train at approximately 5 a.m. on Saturday, February 28. He was confirmed deceased at the scene. BC Coroners Service continues to investigate the death. The family of Harry has requested privacy at this difficult time.
