Personal note from Elaine Smith-daughter
How do I begin to honor my Dad? He was a wonderful father. He was honest, humble, kind and caring. He was not affectionate, but Karen and I always knew he loved us very much. Everyone will remember him for his great sense of humor and his laughter. Dad loved to camp, fish, picnic, watch sports, scratch lottery tickets, watch fireworks and parades. He also enjoyed concerts and plays. He supported us in every activity we undertook. He taught us to sled ride, ride a bike and drive a car. He helped us with homework and attended parent conferences, PTA meetings, and Band Booster meetings. He would often drive Karen and me around with our friends, so we would say it was “Harry’s Harem.” He was a proud veteran of the United States Army Big Red One Division during World War II. He was a terrific dad and will be greatly missed. We love you Dad! Rest In Peace.
