Pete Harsh Obituary – Death: We are deeply saddened to learn that Pete Harsh of Walleye Central passed away on Wednesday, October 13, 2021, after suffering from a brief illness. It was reported that he died leaving families, friends, and loved ones in great grief and fear.

Causes of Pete Harsh’s Death…

If you know anything about walleye tournament fishing in the past 30 years, his name has come up. He was a giant of a man, a quiet man, a gentle soul…someone who epitomized what a “professional” angler should be….he was my friend, a mentor, and someone who always had time for a story and a smile.
I am heartbroken right now…we spoke of Pete last night during coffee hour and it made me think that I should plan a good long trip to Minnesota and ND and spend a day in the boat with him this summer. Now that will never happen……
As I get older, I find that the tears come more often and more easily; that the holes in my heart are filled much more slowly; that each loss is harder……I’m growing weary………RIP Pete
The little reminders that cause tears today will turn into little reminders that make us sad and then those little reminders will eventually make us smile and remember Pete just as he would have wanted us to with love, a grin, and maybe a cold one.
We ask that you uplift his parents and close family and friends in prayer during this time. He has left an impact on the lives of many and a legacy that will live on for many years.
