He passed away after a lengthy illness on November 3, surrounded by his wife and family. He was born on July 23, 1952 to Samuel and Margaret Baddour in Brownsville, Tennessee along with his identical twin brother, Larry.
Harry attended and graduated from Haywood High School in 1970. He completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville and went on to graduate from the University of Tennessee Dental School where he obtained his DDS degree. After graduation, he entered an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residency program at the University of Texas in San Antonio where he met his wife, Beth. Upon completion of his residency, Harry and Beth returned to West Tennessee where Harry established a successful oral surgery practice in Jackson. His compassion and concern for his patients made him a deeply loved and well respected oral surgeon.
Harry loved the outdoors and was an avid hunter and fisherman. He was a loving husband, father and son. Harry's strong devotion to his Catholic faith and to his family guided him each and every day of his life. He was humbled by the gifts that God gave him and generously shared that with St. Mary's Catholic Church and St. Mary's School.
