Harry was a graduate of the University of Rhode Island and a retired registered professional engineer in Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

He chaired the Catholic Charity Drive for North Attleboro and co-chaired the March of Dimes Campaign with his wife Carol and was a "Right to Know Law" trainer in Massachusetts.
