    We met Harry at Camp Rainbow for families of kids with cancer. He changed our lives with his humor and attitude on life. My late wife Carolyn loved him to death and always felt better after talking with him over the years.
    God bless his giant soul.

    I worked with Harry for a year at Advanced Auto. He was the nicest man. When he walked in the door for work I knew it was going to be a good day. He would do anything for anyone. I only knew him for a year but he will be remembered for the rest of my life. RIP Harry you will be greatly missed..

    Harry Lounder Jr. was a mainstay of our family summers in Maine for 4 generations. Not only because he took care of our place but because he took it – and our family – into his heart. We will always remember annual phone calls about what tree fell where during the winter, several summer visits for tea and conversation, his beloved dog Otis and his big hearty laugh. We will miss you, Harry. Hancock Point will not be the same without you.

    Harry was a family man and loved life, he would share stories and offer his help in anyway he could when I was lucky enough to visit our Maine property. One year I arrived with a full van of groceries, after flying across the country exhausted with kids to find the house locked. I went to Harry’s home and his daughter in law called him and he contacted me immediately to get us into the house. We got to know each other better that visit and I learned more about the maintenance projects he performed annually for us. His smile and presence was always welcome and he truly was a “good” neighbor and a “family man” which I admired. He loved his family and spoke fondly of them even with all the health issues they faced he kept his spirits up. I know how well he treated my Nana and our property with his caring ways. Forever grateful, God bless all his family during this time of loss, he left a legacy that will not be forgotten.

Rest in peace Harry, you will be missed by many. Condolences to all of his family and friends, may your happy memories of him help you through your time of grief.

    My family always looked forward to seeing Harry and hearing his stories of wildlife in the area. I especially appreciated his care and help when on Hancock Point. I could always call Harry and he would come right down and help in any way needed. He gave our whole family so much kindness and went above and beyond in helping us. We will also never forget his role in putting out the fire that took our first home. Harry saw us through 4 generations on Hancock Point and we miss him greatly.
