Harry and I have had countless memories growing up but there are a few that stand out. I remember when we were in pop warner football and we were doing tackling drills. Harry and me were set to go against each other in line. Harry looked at me and made a funny motion with his hands basically telling me he was going to toss me. We ended up just running into each other and falling. In high school, Harry turned into a beast. I remember when the opposing team was going for a field goal, and Harry broke through the line of scrimmage and laid out the football holder. I'll never forget hearing that crack sound and looking to my right to see that kid wailing on the ground in agony. We laughed about that for years afterward.

In college, one of the most fun weeks I had was when I visited Harry in Arizona. I remember going out to a hockey game with him and his frat bros. Those guys were some of the rowdiest people I have ever met. They were yelling the entire game. It was hilarious.

This past Summer I visited Harry in Miami. That trip was special because it showed how much we had grown since we were just young kids running into each other in football. Harry showed me the city, the beach, and the University of Miami. I remember loving the city and wanting to make another trip.
Happy birthday Harry! Miss you.

To add a memory to what i wrote..
One of the classic memory's me and Harry use to talk about all the time was this game we use to play Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and we were in third grade and the game was pretty violent so my dad wouldn't loke us playing it but we'd play it every weekend... And ne day we're playing it my dad walks in goes "oh what game you guys playing?" And as he asks it the screen goes to big a picture of lady with a huge caption reading "Vice City" hahaha

It's hard to talk about Harry in past tense but Harry will never be forgotten. My longest friend, I'vee shared thousands of crazy expiriences and adventures that none of us will ever forget... Unreal loss to the world,
Happy birthday man,
Love you rest easy dawg

To Harry's Family,
Please accept my condolences at the loss of your son, brother, and friend. He was truly a great man, and no words I can say will erase the pain you may be feeling now.

To Harry,
Thank you for sharing your laugh with me. Thank you for vigilantly capturing the goose for us on New Years Eve at Lake Tahoe. Thank you for time spent laughing and sharing beers together at the Giants Game most recently (and insisting on paying for the beers which everyone knows are outrageously expensive). My car's temperature was rising so I had to turn the heat on full blast to cool down the engine. Clearly, everyone was sweating as Andrew was driving to the game.

You were a loyal friend of Andrew's, and in the past two years of meeting and knowing you, I could see that you two shared many memories together as friends. There are pictures of you both together as kids in our apartment. There are memories of us all hanging out on the couch playing Super Smash Brothers and Mario Kart. You and Andrew were the competing Donkey Kongs in the game.

I remember one Saturday after I had been studying all day, I decided to take a nap on the couch, then you, Andrew, and Christian showed up and woke me up. We had a blast going to the skating rink in Rohnert Park, hanging out and eating pizza, little kids birthday parties all around.

We cooked up those salty ducks in the apartment one evening! We ended the night over at Bar None playing beer pong before catching an Uber home… I will never forget you! We love you. You will continue to live on in the hearts of everyone who enjoyed your company. Thank you for your friendship.

Dear Malka, Mike, Chip, and Scottie,
I am deeply saddened to learn of this tragic loss, and my heart goes out to all of you. Our lives were so intertwined during your time in Lucas Valley--Harry's bar mitzvah, piano lessons with Chip, birthday parties with Scottie, synagogue and elementary school functions--it feels surreal to now imagine Harry's absence. Please know you are all in my thoughts. May his presence live on in your loving memories and ours.

Malka, Mike & family,
I extend to you all my heartfelt condolences at your terrible loss of your gentle, kind and warm Harry. He was a beautiful soul and will be missed terribly by all who knew him and enjoyed spending time with him. It’s unthinkable!
It was just a few short months ago, he was visiting with Abe over the summer, before moving back East, where we enjoyed telling stories, having a laugh and he was full of life, looking forward to his future.
Again, he was so sweet and kind and will be dearly missed. We are all devastated as surely you are. All our love and prayers. Suzanne, Steve, Abe and Sam Suskind

Harry and I went to Coachella and camped together with our other friends from the fraternity. While others would chose to walk to the portable showers, Harry and I filled up a heavy duty plastic bag and hung it from my SUV's tailgate. We spent the weekend "showering" with a bag full of water and other's became motivated to join in on our unique solution. We all smelled absolutely awful all weekend.

At the end of the weekend we decided we liked the smaller band Bob Moses enough to watch them close out the weekend, rather than the large artist performing at the time (even though we had already seen Bob Moses once that weekend). So we went to the stage where Bob Moses was at and were able to stand front row on the gate. We swore the band members pointed at us several times.

After about an hour of the set we decided to go sit down and watch the show from the side. It was then that we saw this 300 lb absolutely jacked dude who was walking around shirt off trying to start fights with people. At one point he pointed at us and we quickly were like "no no no no no" and we got up and watched from a far. When we saw security come to get the guy we excitedly followed security to see what would happen. We followed security through the crowd laughing the whole way about how this guy was going to get tackled.

In the end both us and the security had lost the guy. Immediately we became frightened that this power lifter of a dude was still on the run. We laughed about that all the way back to the camp sight where we excitedly told Mikey, Seth, and more what had just happened. All in all we had a great 4/5 day weekend at the festival

May Hashem bless your precious soul with the greatest of Aliyahs and mashiach now so we can dance that eternal dance with you forever.

Harry we will miss you more than words can say. In the 3 short days that you spent with our family in the week before you passed, I really feel we all got so close and really got to know you. You were a wonderful person, a kind heart, a generous soul, and you lived life to the fullest with joy and passion. It was so special you and Chip got to play music downstairs for bro bonding, following by some candy at the store, it was wonderful that you, Yitz and Chip got bagels together in the morning. Yitz looked up to you so much as his cool, fun, nice uncle as you watched the football game,Meira loved melting in your arms and I really appreciated you talking to me and opening up to me hanging out on the couch. Seeing your smile dancing with the Torah, Chip, Yitz and Meira was something I will never forget. I get comments often how happy you looked. You are a holy soul to light Shabbos candles and want Shabbos guests. You passed away being very close to Gd and I pray that you are in a place of eternal bliss, love and peace.
I’ll work hard to be a good wife to your brother and a good mom to your niece and nephew and hopefully more.
We will never forget you, not even for one moment.
You touched our lives deeply and forever.
We love you and pray you are looking down seeing the joy you brought to the world.
