Harry was inducted into the United States Army in January of 1944 and served through the end of World War II. When he returned, he met his Ruby and they had a true romance. The handsome movie theater usher and the beautiful ticket girl who caught his eye. First she was his sweetheart and then she became his wife. They spent a lifetime together raising a family, working hard, and enjoying the fruits of their labor. They supported each other during the tough times. They laughed, they loved and they lived happily together until his beloved Ruby died in 2001. Harry spent the next 15 years impatiently waiting to be reunited with her.
