Harry was employed with Butcher Boys Concession of Hobe Sound Florida for many years. He would prep the food for the Butcher Boys stands that is a longtime staple at the entrance to the Big E Fair in Springfield every year.

He will be remembered as a comical and extremely personable man with an upbeat personality.
