  1. A memory I have to share is from the early 1960s – First time I met Harry I was 13-14 years old. Harry was driving a .souped up. 1940 Ford Tudor sedan with a big V8 motor that he swapped in from another vehicle. Since I also had a huge interest in hot rods, I thought that was the coolest thing. You will be missed by many. My deepest sympathies and heartfelt condolences go out to all of Harry’s family and friends.

  2. Dear Karen and family, We are so sorry for you loss. Harold was a special person as was your relationship with him. We at Dr. Demirs office wanted to send our love and condolences. Love Dr. Demir’s office

  3. Dear Karen and family, We are so sorry for your loss. Harold was a special person as was your relationship with him. We at Dr. Demirs office wanted to send our love and condolences. Love Dr. Demir’s office

  4. For my Dad, my life has been exceptional because of your unconditional love. I believe, your influences and attitudes shaped my personality into who I am today. I love you forever:)

  5. Harry and I .hung out. in the late 50’s and early sixties. We were quite a pair, he over six feet and me over five feet! We had some great times together. A few years ago, Harry and Karen came to the Chowder Pot in Branford to see me perform with my Galvanized Jazz Band. It was great to see Harry after so many years! I’ll miss him. My sympathy to Karen and to Harry’s family.

  6. Harry had a special gift, conversation…I will always remember our talks at the donut on Sunday evenings. Let alone the time he spent with me in buying my bike at Libby’s. His brite smile, love of people and life always struck me. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. With the wind in his face, the warm sun on his back, may he ride into heaven with that same smile. We all will miss him

  7. Harry what can I say, just a few things. If I was able to pick who would have been my dad it surly would have been you. All I ever wanted in a father I found in you, which is a big list to fill. Lori and Erick are so lucky to have you and I know they feel the same way. We have had some great moments and a lot of laughs, and we will again. Sorry it will be a long time till we meet up and ride across the heavens. Oh and maybe raise a little hell. Love forever and always Dan.

  8. Harry, I talked to a few friends ‘up there’ to make some room for that big yellow wing of yours. Were gonna miss you.

  9. Harry, you are in our prayers and minds. May you have a smooth ride through the Gates of Heaven and live in eternal peace above. We can never express the gratitude for meeting such an amazing and inspirational person. Your smile and courage will be remembered for years to come…… Thank you and God Bless Thoughts and Prayers for all the family members who have lost a man so loved by many….

  10. I am sorry for your loss, it has been a long time since I saw Harold but he still looked like I remembered him. He also looked a lot like his father. Harold and I were cousins, his father and my mother were brother and sister. Mom is still alive but lost touch with her brother and his family years ago. May God bless Harold and your family.

  11. Mr. Andrewsen ( also known to me as . HEY Lori’s dad !.) will be greatly missed. He treated all of us kids as if we were his own. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire family, and with my best friend Lori everyday. I love you girl.

  12. To Harry, who always had a smile, a good word to all and ready to listen, he will be surely missed. We offer our condolences to family and all who knew him.

  13. We will miss him,he was such a nice,pleasant person,even though he was sick he never showed it.One of the pluses of being in business is being able meet nice people like Harry,that bad side is losing nice people,having to say goodbye. Ernie & Effie Badas (Heav’nly Donuts)
