For Joyce and all those who knew and loved him:

I have many special memories of Harry.
Many good years we passed when I was younger. He taught me many things.
He will be missed greatly and always be in our hearts.

Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of Harry. We grew up together in Galway NY, many long years ago.

Harry and I met shortly before I had the good fortune to marry his sister, Evelyn, in 1992. I liked Harry right off; he was friendly, interesting, and had a resonating deep bass voice. He could have been a popular radio personality.

We will miss Harry on our trips to New York.
