Dedicated to his community, Harry was a long-standing active member of Beth Hillel Synagogue in Bloomfield. As a Jewish war veteran, he served his country during World War II following his graduation from Weaver High School in Hartford. While at Weaver, he starred on championship basketball and baseball teams which led to his election to the Jewish Athletes Hall of Fame. His love and affection for his family, which extended through marriage and multiple generations, was the essence of his life. Family gatherings on weekends and holidays, sharing recreation and travel, and being with his family and sharing in their collective joy was his greatest pleasure.
