Our sincere condolences from the Harris family.  George remembers him being a great neighbor that would help anyone in need, and indeed helped us out.  Some of my memories of him growing up as his neighbor: he prepared their pond for skating by removing snow with his tractor so we could all skate, he let me come along with Steve to a day at Dorney Park and treated me to dinner, and in general the way he kept the house and property tidy with projects and hard work.
Wishing the family comfort during this time.
Best thoughts,
-Greg Harris
