Donations can be made in his memory to Riley Children Hospital or St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Harry always enjoyed spending time with his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. He played many sports throughout his life, but his favorite pastime was golfing. He was a competitive bowler, skilled pool player, and was known for his witty sense of humor. He also enjoyed spending time with friends at his winter home in Brooksville, Florida. Harry will be greatly missed by all his loved ones and friends.
