  1. When i was a kid i loved it when
    Uncle “Duke” (Harry) and my dad got together and I got to go fishing or hunting with them.
    And then listening to them talk and laugh about some of the stuff they did when they were kids and young men “back in the day”.
    Some of my fondest memories.
    Rest in peace, Uncle Duke.

    1. Yes. Remember when we went ice fishing with them and rode the snowmobiles back and forth across the lake while they fished. Fun times we had with them and great times your dad and my dad had in the “silver bullet” when they got together with friends to hunt. Great stories❤️

  2. I am saddened to hear about Harry’s passing. He taught me quite a bit as a child, and I appreciated the discipline and strict guidance received. There were many fond memories at the cabin my mom and Harry built together, and the days we spent at camp during hunting season. I will cherish the good memories and appreciate them. Harry was a great American and I am forever grateful for his service to our country. Rest In Peace Harry! NAVY and MARINE CORP – SEMPER FI

  3. I always enjoyed the visits & time spent with Uncle “Duke” when I was a kid & even more so as an adult. Always good times & laughs & Croghan Bologna to be had! When I lived in SC, he came to visit & we met up for dinner & drinks. He loved his Italian food & we went to local beach bars. He even enjoyed front row tickets to the Larry Gatlin Theater show! Great visits, but always too short for me. After my father’s passing, Uncle Duke & I shared much more frequent phone calls. He kept pretty good tabs on me & this helped me so much in dealing with the loss. We would talk, text & both loved to share some goofy memes back & forth. I will miss all this! Tracey, thank you for mentioning “The Silver Bullet”! They had such good times hunting there.
    Unfortunately, a short obit left out the fact that he was a very proud Marine. Thank you for mentioning, Leisa!
    Rest in Peace, Uncle Duke
    I love you

    1. Yes. Harry was a very proud Marine! I remember talking about it with him at 12 years of age and couldn’t wait to grow up and enlist. All of us laughed pretty hard at it, but he was a big influence in my life. We stayed in contact over the years as he was my only father figure. Although he was my stepfather for most of my childhood, I considered him the real father in my life. I will miss his posts on Facebook and the small chats we had over the years. Rest in Peace, Harry. You will be sorely missed by us.
