Harry was loved by one and all. He had a quick wit and loved making people laugh. Most who knew him considered him one of their best friends. One friendship however, was unique and special and that was Harry’s best friend Randy Shank. A lifetime of memories was made with Steelers parties, summer picnics, golf outings and of course the annual family vacations to Top Sail.
Harry was employed by Portamedic of the Hooper Holmes Company where he was known as being the best in the industry. He was the requested examiner by many insurance agents. He had an enormous love of family and a great love for his Lord Jesus Christ and his church, the Library Baptist Church (Crossroads Ministries). He especially loved having the opportunity to travel on a medical mission trip to the Philippines. He loved learning about the country with Pastor Al Finney.
