Sorry to be adding another angel to our 1960 Class website.  I worked with Harry at SKF when I worked

there as the plant nurse.  He was a special man and will be surely missed. I knew he had been struggling for

several years. Sympathy to his family. RIP Harry.   Sandy

Sorry to hear another 1960 classmate has been lost from this world to All who knew and loved him over the years.  My heart-felt feelings go out to you All.

Knew Harry from Baker School. To me he always seemed a pleasant, somewhat quiet spoken, nice guy. The kind of person the world would be better off with more of. Sorry to hear that he's no longer with us.
