I'll say a word..just a word about Harry he deserves a kindness that I suspect he never got from his classmates while walking the halls alone at Garner with his slide rule and pocket protector. Harry was in many of my classes, and I took note of him....some of my associates tormented him like only 8th grade boys can. He seemed studious, shy, a loner in my memory...certainly not part of the "in" crowd. I never got to know Harry fact I don't think I ever said a single word to him...which was probably my I suspect he had alot going on under the hood. I only hope that after he graduated ...and moved beyond the emotional hazards of the teenage years that he had a good life....and that he did not suffer at the end.

Oh I so remember Harry, the one guy who made going to Mr. Norm Hitzges' Journalism class so damn much fun. You would never know by looking at that nerdy, somewhat proper exterior, lie a personality and sense of humor that would rival any comic you might find endearing - this guy kept me in stitches and was probably a distraction more often than not, but "Norm" loved him, as we all did. I recall a particular evening when our class gathered for a "field trip" and some of us met in the Mac parking lot to carpool - I ended up riding with Harry and I was soooo impressed - back in the day, a '69 LeManns was one awesome ride and when he turned on the radio, it had what I had never heard of before...a "reverberator" which gave the music a "down in the pipes echo" and I loved it! Harry laughed so hard at my reaction and that made me laugh - he was absolutely contagious. God love ya, Harry, I hope you're aware of all the good things people are saying about you!!!

Yeah, Harry was a hoot. I was in Hitzges' class too, and I recall the time Joan Whitmore called him "chunky". Harry, in his inimitable droll style, replied "open wide for CHUNKY!!".
