Harry G. Bodine Jr. left us on July 16, 2011, after a brief illness. He was 62.
Harry grew up in the Bordentown area and lived in Burlington most of his life.
After high school graduation, he served a tour of duty in Vietnam as a helicopter door gunner.
Upon his return home, he worked at various jobs, played on several softball teams, then began his career in the wine and liquor distribution business at Capitol Wine and Liquor, then Fedway Associates, where he worked for 39 years.
Harry enjoyed many sports, both playing and watching, working out in his basement gym and fishing, however his greatest pleasure was spending time with his children and grandchildren, and watching whatever sport or show they were participating in. Free sports advice followed each game, although not always appreciated at the time, was later found to be true and accurate.
Previously deceased are Harry's parents, Aldine and Harry G. Bodine Sr.
Left to mourn his loss, are his wife, Brenda; sons, Kevin and Ryan of Burlington; daughters, Kelly and Adam Tilger of Medford and Kim and Dave Keller of West Deptford; grandchildren: Jack and Camryn Tilger, and Samantha Keller.
