Harry was many people; devoted husband, loving father and grandpa, Williams College graduate, skilled orthopedic surgeon, avid golfer, enthusiastic equestrian, carpenter, wood worker, reader of history, builder of fences, and driver of tractors. Always quick with a joke or a kind word, he will be missed by us all. God speed, Harry, in your next adventure.
