Harry and Judy have been friends and neighbors for well over twenty years. My heart and prayers go out to Judy and his entire family during this difficult time. Harry was such an institution in our community. Both he and Judy served in various capacities throughout the years and Harry continued to serve as our "watchman" every single day on his daily trips to the pool or the fitness room. He checked every door in the facilities and always to see if the pool umbrellas were down or the condition of the lake if we were having a lot of rain. Harry always had a joke and a smile and loved to talk and chat either at the pool or walking his beloved dog, Boogsy. He is going to be missed by so many in our community, including me. He served us well and was a well- respected member of Regency Wood for many, many years. It's hard to say goodbye, but Godspeed to our dear and wonderful friend, Harry.

Like many others, I enjoyed frequently seeing Harry at the pool. He always made me laugh and we had some good conversations. Harry was a kind, funny, interesting man, and a joy to be around. His family will be in my prayers.

Have such wonderful memories of our times at the pool and much of the earliest days we were indeed pool buddies with being the only 2 people there. Stories to share and foolery to laugh at.You will be so missed . Peace Friend, we will see you again.

Harry and I saw each other almost every day. That's because we walked our dogs approximately at the same time. However on those extremely cold mornings, he'd say to me, "Wil, you left the refrigerator door open again". That was our Harry Odham from Overbrook Drive. We'll miss you, Big Guy.

I met Harry at the pool at Regency Wood several years ago. He had a great tan and enjoyed laying out in the sun.
Later I found out he enjoyed working out at the clubhouse gym four days a week. He showed me around the machines and gave me tips on using the weights.
You could often see Harry giving Boogsie walks . Boogsie had a grooming appointment each week .
Harry told me he grew up with Roman Gabriel and Sonny Jurgensen who both became professional football players. They were visiting and having a meal in a restaurant and a lady came up to Harry and asked for his autograph.
I will miss seeing my friend.
