Harry retired after forty years working at the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets. Harry was a devoted son, brother, husband, father, papa and friend

He was predeceased by his parents, his sister Barbara Quinn and niece Shelia Quinn. Harry is survived by his wife Paulette and their children Colleen Yeager (Joe Dickinson) of Clifton Park, NY and Shannon Finegan (Ryan) of Voorheesville, NY; grandchildren Elizabeth (Andrew Wright), Bryce Yeager and Morgan Finegan; great grandson Grayson Wright; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.

A private family service will be held with burial in the Gerald BH Solomon Saratoga National Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers memorial contributions in memory of Harry may be made to the Parkinson’s Foundation or Community Hospice of Saratoga.

The family would like to thank Harry’s Doctors, Visiting Nurses of Albany and Community Hospice of Saratoga for their care and compassion during Harry’s illness.

Paulette and family,
Sending you thoughts and prayers during this time of loss. Harry was always a welcoming person, he was a wonderful family man. When we met when I began at Agriculture and Markets in Milk Control, he always was helpful when we needed anything from finance.
Take care and God Bless

Paulette and Family,

Our deepest sympathy and prayers to you and your family.
Do not hesitate to call us for anything you need.

Bob and Angie Rybak

Paulette, Colleen & Shannon,

We just wanted to let you know that Harry and you are in our thoughts and prayers. Harry was one of the few folks who went out of his way to make Bob feel welcome in Town Hall when he was first elected. His kindness at the time will never be forgotten.

We wish that there were some words that would take away the pain you are now feeling. But there are none. But as time goes by, the pain you are now feeling will be replaced by memories of the many happy times you spent together.

If there is anything we can do for you, do not hesitate to call.

I have many fond memories of growing up with Harry. For a time I lived with him and his sister Barb on Younglove Ave. I actually thought they were my brother and sister. He was my Sponsor for Confirmation. I still have the ring he gave as a Confirmation gift. He got me a job at Gene's Gas Station and made me part of the crew at Boyers. O! YA! He gave me the honor of being God Father to his first born Colleen whom I cherish dearly. He was Best Man at our wedding. Through all those times and great memories I can honestly say, I never saw this coming. You were more than a cousin to me.
To Paulette, Colleen, Shannon you are in our thoughts and prayers.
Love to you all. Carl & Irene

Sending our love to all of you. Johanna said it best - we all looked forward to seeing Uncle Harry at Thanksgiving and reunions to listen to his latest crazy jokes. He made everyone laugh. I'm glad we were able to get together recently over Junior's cheesecake and catch up. He was a very good man, role model and a great Uncle. We'll miss him. Love, Sharon, Jay and Jim

Sending Strength to all of you at this very difficult time.
I have so many wonderful memories of our families together and then getting caught drinking in the parking lot at a concert. He said if I can't drink you can't drink haha. I loved his crazy since of humor. And most of all I love that I got to spend time with him recently and he once again made me haugh..
Love you all,
Johanna
