In 1939, Harry moved with his parents and twin brother from a farm near Iberia, Missouri to a farm in the Mississippi River bottoms at Pike Station, Illinois where he then farmed from the age of 14 until his retirement from farming at 80. In addition to farming, in his younger years he worked summers in Kansas following the wheat harvest from one farm to another. In the fall he and his brother-in-law Louis Martin hauled dozens of truck-loads of apples from Pike and Calhoun Counties Illinois and peaches from southern Illinois to be sold by the bushel in many communities in the Ozarks. Later he drove a propane delivery truck for Uregas Propane here in Louisiana for several seasons; worked at Hercules Chemical Company in Louisiana, MO and for over 20 years at Dundee Cement Company in Clarksville where he was a crusher operator.

Harry was a faithful Christian all his life and was instrumental in helping start the Church of Christ in Louisiana, Missouri where he was a member from 1954 until his death. He was a man of unquestionable integrity and was known for his kindness to everyone. Pallbearers will be Rebekah Hempen, Tyler Hempen, Kane Law, Whitney Law, Jesse Naessens, and Rusty Wunderlich.
