COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Harry Short's aunt fought back tears as she reflected deeply on the young man that their family and community knew and loved.

There was standing room only inside the church Saturday afternoon, September 21, as hundreds came to pay their respects to a man who many say never stopped smiling.

"That smile, he always kept a smile on his face. He always had a smile on his face," Ms. Sims said.

Hundreds packed into New Providence Baptist Church off of Veterans Parkway in Columbus to pay tribute to Harry Short Jr.

Short's life was celebrated through song and inspiring words from family members, coaches, and friends.

"He was more just like a big brother, because he always put me up on game, and talked to me, and let me know what was up, and he didn't sugar coat anything," Keilah Jones said.

Several of Short's former teammates from Jordan High School were in attendance as well as players from Chattahoochee Valley Community College.

"He was so humble, you never find too many people like Harry. He smiled. Even through the bad times he smiled," Jamar Pipkin said.

Harry's life was cut short after he was shot and killed at a Columbus night club by a security guard. Ms. Sims says that though Harry is gone his legacy will live on through the many lives he touched with his "all star" spirit.

"He was our all-star, he was Jordan's all-star, he was CVCC all star, but now he's God's all star."
