So long, Harry.

The problem with old friends - We joked that the emphasis was on the "old" - is that they eventually head west.

I liked Harry Gunther. He was always nice to me and an affable sort. He could engage in spirited debate at times. Harry was a retired machinist and flew as a crewmember in the Navy version of the B-24 during the unpleasantness of the 1940s. Shown here with his beloved Aeronca Champ at a Father's Day fly-out to Talmage Farm on Long Island.
