Harry, was a special soul, an accomplished musician, a sharp dressed man, well-traveled, loved his grand-children, fine dining, and cruising the backroads of Fairfield finding different routes. He was an avid NY Yankees fan and the late Jeff Beck and Pat Martino, were his idols.  He loved working on his classic Mercedes cars, finishing the NY Times Saturday cross-word puzzles, playing tennis, viewing Jeopardy with his wife Lori, acing many questions and watching ‘we the people news’ on Rumble. He absolutely loved reading, always learning. Harry was self-educated in Business, computer technology, auto mechanics, electricity, government/politics, history and music amongst other things. One of his favorite pass times was feasting and enjoying the friendship at his favorite restaurant - Joseph’s Steak House in Bridgeport.

He grew up in Fairfield CT, and in his youth, Harry, played for the American major little league team, sponsored by Klarh Glass, in 1963 and 1964 of Fairfield.

Soon after, Harry began a long and arduous journey to refine his musical interests.  While he played on local softball leagues, and worked Bar tending in different venues, he studied guitar with the late Jazz guitarist, Pat Martino, his mentor; and also studied piano with the late Lou Stein.
