Harry was a very kind person who always tried to do the right thing. He was proud of his service in World War II, where he was part of the Battle of the Bulge.
He Had many interests besides diamonds. He and his first wife, Adele, liked to dance and often won dance contests on cruises. Painting was another hobby. He enjoyed socializing with friends. And despite his age, he was adept with the computer. His mind remained remarkably clear to the end of his life.
We shall miss him.
