Harry was born into a loving Christian family where faith, service and values were the cornerstone of his life.  He graduated from Circleville High School in 1955 and was an avid golfer. Shortly after graduation he met the love of his life, Beverly Knecht, and they were married soon afterward and raised two beautiful children. 


Harry joined the Ohio Air National Guard at Lockbourne Army base and was deployed overseas for several military assignments.  Upon returning from his military duties, he worked for General Mills for 31 years until his retirement.  In retirement, Harry enjoyed antiquing with his wife, vacationing with family, playing Euchre, spending time with loved one and enjoying the simple pleasures of life. 


He will be remembered as a man of faith who was always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need.  Harry modeled the love, kindness and generosity of a belief that was deeply important to him especially in his later years of life.
