He was raised in Meadville, PA and spent his early life there. He moved to Colorado Springs in 1972. Known to all as Harry, he was a hard worker and worked in construction and as a house painter. He met his wife "on the dance floor" as he told everyone. He enjoyed camping, fishing and playing the slots at Cripple Creek. He made friends wherever he went. You were never a stranger and he opened his home to anyone. He loved to host family and friend gatherings at his home. Harry also loved to laugh and joke with family and friends. He relished his time with his children and grandchildren and enjoyed traveling to see them in Pennsylvania and Seattle. Harry enjoyed all Colorado sports teams, including Colorado Rockies, but his passion was the Denver Broncos. "Go Broncos!"
