I just found out about Harry's passing and was sorry to hear. I transferred from Warwick High School to Newport News High School because of Harry. Tried to get in touch with him through the years to no avail. My thoughts and prayer go out to his family. Would like to get in touch with Sylvia and if anyone can let her know I would appreciate it.
