He grew up in Seven Hills with brothers Paul, Danny, Terry, Anthony, and sister Ann. Harry was the eldest of 6 and went to Seven Hill’s Primary School and completed High School at Seven Hill High.
Harry left home at an early age and within a short time, took up a position within the NSW Police Department as a Public Servant at the age of 17.

Harry also completed a Bachelor of Law Juris Doctor at Sydney University and passed the bar to become a Barrister.
Harry married Maree and soon after saw the birth of their only child Matthew in 1978, who survives Harry and cared for him for the later years of his life.
Harry received numerous accolades and awards during his time in the NSW Police Service. He also devoted 25 plus years, working in the service of the community in the positions of Director and then further along, President of the Five Dock RSL Club.
Harry was an admired and well respected member of the community who would always go out of his way to help others. He was witty, humorous, intelligent and enigmatic. Harry’s infectious character drew people to him his whole life. Even until the very end, all that encountered him, loved his unique sense of humour, his cheeky smile and witty rebuttal’s. Harry was much loved by friends and family and will be terribly missed.
