Born in Genesee Depot, Wis., Harry earned a medical degree from the University of Wisconsin, followed by an internship and residency at OHSU. Before college, he enlisted in the U.S. Army and was deployed to the European theater, where he served under General Patton in Germany. In 1950, Pearl Drummond danced into his life and they continued dancing for 66 years. Four daughters, Laura, Lynn, Lee and Lu, soon followed, plus six grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Harry loved sharing his love of sports, from little league coaching to sailing competitions to snow skiing, water skiing, biking, tennis and volleyball. At the same time, he loved playing bridge, working in his vegetable garden, baking bread and making noodles for his family and friends, all of whom will miss his wit and wisdom dearly. And the four L's will miss our many stops for soft serve at Dairy Queen!Heaven bound April 2, 2017, Harry hit a home run! 91 healthy years, biking to the finish line!
