Harry C. Delmolino, adored by all

HADLEY- Harry C. Delmolino, 18, of River Drive, died Tuesday, May 22, 2012, at the Baystate Medical Center in Springfield. He was born Aug. 25, 1993, in Brattleboro, Vt., the son of John and Susan (Fish) Delmolino.

Harry graduated when he was 17 years old with an Associate's Degree in Computer Science from Greenfield Community College. His education was highly untraditional, so what this really means is that Harry spent his high school years taking all the college science and math classes that struck his fancy, while he spent most of his time building computers, bicycles, and mechanical contraptions for every possible use. Harry's lifelong passion has been taking things apart to see how they work, and putting them back together to make them work better.

When he wasn't engrossed in his latest, coolest project, Harry would brighten the world around him with his impishly sparkling grin, and make everyone laugh at a well-placed joke or pun. People who met Harry didn't just like him, they adored him. He was the rare person who is truly able to get along in every situation and form a friendship with anyone. He not only participated actively in various communities, he took on leadership roles, whether it was in Boy Scout Troop 504, or the Hulbert Outdoor Center Homeschool program, or the /r/bicycling community on Reddit, where he was a moderator.

Harry's job was Google Apps Support Engineer at Smith College, and he also worked at Laughing Dog Bicycles. He had been accepted to the University of Massachusetts at Amherst for a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science, to start in the fall.

Harry had one of those uniquely creative minds that are an inspiration to all they touch.

Besides his parents, John and Susan Delmolino of Hadley, Harry leaves his sister Grace, as well as several aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Funeral services will be held on Tuesday, May 29 at 11 a.m. at the Kostanski Funeral Home, 1 Kostanski Square, Turners Falls. Burial will follow in Riverside Cemetery in Gill. Calling hours will be held on the evening of Monday, May 28, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the funeral home.

I can hardly believe that this kind-hearted, generous, and brilliant soul could have departed life so young. I am truly sorry to hear of his passing and send my deepest sympathies to his family.
