He later went to North Electric Supply in Michigan and was President for 20 years. He retired in 2001 and he and his wife, Lynda moved to South Carolina, making their home at Dataw Island.

Harry loved the game of golf and it brought him many great memories through the years that he played. He also loved to ski and learned to fly and truly enjoyed that for over 40 years. He was a quiet man in many ways but had a heart of gold and a gleam that sparkled in his eyes and a laugh that so many loved. He will be truly missed by many.

His love of his Lord and Savior was at the top of his list and he lived his life as a child of God. He and his wife are members of Tidal Creek Fellowship Church and he loved Sundays when he could be there and praise the Lord.

His wife, Lynda would like to thank BMH, MSA Hospice, The Retreat at Lady’s Island and many very special friends for their love, caring ways and support during this time. God bless you all.
