    FITZPATRICK asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.) Mr. FITZPATRICK. I rise to honor the lifetime of service of Harry W. Fawkes, who passed away in Pennsylvania this week.

    I am fortunate and honored to have known Harry Fawkes and benefited from his leadership. 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 of Bucks County, where he was born, married, raised his family, started his business, and served his community in elected office.

    Harry was recognized as an effective leader and decisionmaker because he led the party based on principles and worked tirelessly 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, and humility and graciousness.

    May he be granted the eternal peace he so rightly earned.
