It was my honor to replace Harry in England on my first tour overseas. I got to play ball with him a bit before his reassignment and he was wicked good. While our paths did not cross a lot after that I followed his career and respected his service to our country. My condolences to his family. Bob Claymier

I thought I left a condolence a few days ago,..but maybe too long. Rest well my friend, no more pain or suffering. Serving on 3 ships together so very long ago we've had some great memories and you've become a great loving and caring husband, father, and grandparent,..so many more to miss all that you brought to the table. My heartfelt condolences to your family, from a very long time Navy Bud.

Harry and I were roomates for 3 yrs in college. He was a character as well as a friend and always kept everyone laughing. When we graduated we split a colorful rock in half as a remembrance of our time together. Harry, I still have my 1/2 and hope we get to match them up again in the hereafter.
