Harry followed his dream of becoming a farmer and purchased a farm outside Mercersburg, Pa., where he raised sheep. There, in a beautiful valley called Little Cove, he helped raise a family. He was a man of keen intellect and character who loved words, books, art, rocks, stars, plants and animals. He had great empathy for and interest in the world around him. Harry was a true naturalist. York Harbor, Maine, where Harry spent many summers throughout his life, was a place of great significance to him. He returned to York Harbor in his final months, where he passed away surrounded by family.
