The uncle wanted Harry. If the uncle had killed the father, especially in Harry's presence, he would have "lost" Harry.
Oh, and Harry is NO weakling... 1. He tries (but often fails) to keep a low profile. 2. Even he didn't know exactly how powerful he actually is, but learns more as the written series continues.
They really could have done a better job supporting and promoting the tv show. I'm still holding out hope for a reboot.
