His former school Omagh Academy and Seskinore YFC also paid tribute on social media.

 

A spokesman for the school posted: "Harry was a quiet gentleman who was passionate about farming and he was actively involved in Seskinore Young Farmers’ Club during his school career and beyond.

 

"We would like to express our sincere sympathy and condolences to the Gibson family circle and to Harry’s many friends at this sad time."

Seskinore YFC wrote: "We would like to express our sincere condolences to the Gibson family and friends for the passing of our dear member, Harry."

 

Ulster Unionist councillor Bert Wilson told the Belfast Telegraph: "They’re a very popular and well-known family and it is a terrible shock for the area," he said.

 

"It must be dreadful for the family: I have known them for three generations now.

 

"I believe Harry was in some of the local bands here and was a hardworking young man."

 

"I’m told he had to put down an animal that was sick and a dreadful accident happened."

 

"There’s so many farm accidents now, with farmers killed while dealing with animals.

 

"In a lot of cases they would be fairly elderly, but this was a young man with his whole life in front of him which makes it so much more tragic."

A family notice described Harry as the “loving son of Mervyn and Susan, much-loved twin brother of Charlotte, dear boyfriend of Alison, a dearly loved grandson and nephew”.

 

It added: “Will be sadly missed by his loving mum, dad, sister, girlfriend and the entire family circle.”
