Condolences to Doris and the family on their loss of a fine man. My memories of Harry go back even further than the obituary history. We met when I was just shy of the drinking age and he had taken over the management of the Tropical Bar. Located at New Jersey and Atlantic Avenues I believe it was owned by his father-in-law, Max Lewis. Harry was young, ambitious, and definitely into entertainment. Within weeks this small neighborhood bar was remodeled and go go girls as well as piano player, Ray Dietrich, were performing on week-ends to a crowded bar. Even at this early time Harry had his sight set on The Tropics. He was successful in his quest and hosted an even better entertainment lounge, GRABEL'S, for years! Thanks for the memories, old friend.

Very sad to hear of Harry's passing. We were the house band that played at Grabels and have very fond memories of funny ways and kindness. (Bill Christman Expresso Show Band). R.I.P. and thanks for the memories.

My heartfelt condolences to the family of this legendary gentleman. Thank you Harry for countless priceless memories of nights full of joy while performing on your stage. I know I am not alone in saying, you always made me feel special. You made the music makers and night owls always feel like we were home. Thank you, you will always have a special place in our hearts.

Mark, Scott, Max, Caleb and Doris, I go back many years with Harry & Grabels..My family's sincerest condolences. My Uncle Cooks Books used to leave his cab outside while he stopped in to sing a song or two with whatever band was playing. I actually got over my stage fright at Grabel's when Sandi Fontana brought me up on stage with "Rumors", and made me sing in front of the regulars at Grabel's. I spent many nights, singing with bands, and hanging out with friends over the years, and just adored how both Doris and Harry always made me feel like family. RIP Harry, now you can party with Cook's Book's, my Dad, Jimmy G,and now my little sister Tammy too....Your business sense, and respect for local entertainers will be sorely missed.
