He retired from Ft Hood Civil Service in 1982 where he managed the III Corps AG reproduction center. He moved to Deltona, Florida and formed a carpet cleaning business which he operated up to the age of 80.
Harry never met a stranger. He loved visiting with friends and family. He was always willing to help either by giving advice or anything else that might be needed. He had a great sense of humor.
He stayed close to the lord, and knelt by his bed and prayed every night.
He was loved by his family and many friends. We're all happy he is with Cora again.
