His favorite pastimes included woodworking, stopping in at the Eagles Lodge, fishing in the channel at their lake home and playing softball for the Cooper Tire league. “Capt. Harry” especially enjoyed guiding tours of Grand Lake St. Marys on his pontoon boat for anyone willing to ride along.

Above everything else, Harry appreciated the precious times spent with his family.
