He was born in Newark, raised in Meyersville and had lived in Howell before settling here in 1987. Harry served proudly in the United States Navy during the Korean War. In the years that followed, he generously volunteered his time with the Freewood Acres Fire Department where he also served as Chief and Commissioner, and coached in the North Howell Little League program for many years.
