Harry proudly served in the Navy as an aircraft mechanic for 7 years from 1960 – 1967. During his time in the military, Harry met his loving wife Patricia. Following his time in the military, Harry and Pat moved to Olathe, Kansas where he worked as a Firefighter on the military base, a base closure prompted a move to Sierra Vista, Arizona. Harry was fortunate enough to take a position as a fireman on Fort Huachuca for the next 25 years, ultimately retiring in 1992 as Assistant Fire Chief. Harry enjoyed many hobbies to include team roping, softball, antique car restoration, stock car racing and anything his kids and grandkids wanted to do!
