Harry was a life-long member of the Armenian Church of Our Saviour where he served on the parish council. He enjoyed socializing and working bingo, helping at church picnics and festivals.

Another favorite pastime was going to the casinos, no matter if that was in Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Aruba, St. Marten or staying local.
Harry graduated from Commerce High School and Worcester Junior College. He served in the Massachusetts Army National Guard for six years. He then went on to work for the Telegram and Gazette in the composing room for over 40 years. He built many beautiful friendships at work and at his church. He carried those friendships through the years by visiting at the Tatnuck square McDonald's and Cambridge Street Culpeppers.
