Harry was born on May 16, 1930 in Johnsburg, NY. Harry attended Johnsburg School and went on to obtain the rank of E7 Sargent First Class (Drill Sargent) during his 22 years in the United States Army serving in the Korean and Vietnam Wars. Harry enjoyed watching western movies with his 17 year old dog- Dixie. Harry was a fun-loving wonderful man. He could always bring a smile or a laugh. He was very outspoken and there was no question about how he felt about anything. His sister Harriet told the story of her being allowed to the square dances if she went with brother, Howard, because she would get into too much trouble if she went with Harry. He kept the same fun-loving attitude throughout his life.
