Harry Fumba Vannie
January 3, 1975 - November 16, 2014

Our family is deeply saddened to announce that our beloved Harry Fumba Vannie passed away on November 16, 2014 at Georgetown University Hospital, in Washington, DC after valiantly fighting a sudden illness. He is survived by his wife Kristina, and his three children, Avery, Angelina and Winifred, his mother, Winifred Kargbo (Dr. Charles Kargbo), his brother, Sam, and Sister, Jenneh, as well as a host of cousins, uncles and aunts, and a large number of friends who considered him family. He is predeceased by his father Isaac Morlay Vannie. Regarded by all as one of the nicest people you would ever meet, Harry leaves behind a legacy of good will and genuine friendship, his love of family, love of cars and his overall love of life.
We will all miss Harry and his unique ability to brighten a room, encourage a friend, and revive our spirit.
