Harry Moffat was a Goleta native who grew up in Isla Vista and later in Rancho Embacadero in Goleta. He learned to surf at an early age at Haskell’s Beach after school and on the weekends.

One of his lifelong joys was ceramics. For the last thirty years Harry has been throwing ceramic bowls down at the Schott Center. He was affectionally known as Harry Potter and loved to give his bowls away to his friends.

A big thanks to Hospice and Serenity house who made his final journey as comfortable as possible.

A Celebration of Life will be held at Goleta Beach on 1/7/2023 from 1-3pm. Some of Harry’s ceramics will be there for you to take home.
