It's with a heavy heart I post this. Harry, Black Dog has past away. I talked to his wife today. She is going to send me his obituary. When I get it, I will post it. Damn it all to hell. He was someone I really wanted to meet. We talked on the phone and you could tell he was somebody who cared. I'm going to miss him!
Harry and I rarely saw eye to eye but there were few people on this forum with more charisma. I, personally, appreciate his stance on animal welfare - and I am going to make a donation in his name (or at least his ET name) to our local animal shelter. RIP Harry. I wish the best for your family and pet(s).

What a shock..do you know what happened (or are you at liberty to say..) ?

My sincere condolences to his family and friends..he will be missed.
All I saw was backstay's post and simply quoted it here. Sounds like he will post the obituary when he gets it.

This truly is sad, and shocking. Like Eric, outside the electrical field we rarely agreed, but he was a character and I also admired his love and defense of animals.
He will definitely be missed.

Always the first to welcome a newcomer, and generally a very helpful and friendly guy from what I could see. A loss to this forum, as well as those in his real life obviously.

I really appreciated Harry's spirit and personality, and even though we never met I considered him a friend. I can't believe it.

RIP Harry.

Haven't been on long enough to know him, but he did jump in right away welcome me to the group. Sounds like a really good person.

They say you can tell a lot about a man, by the way he treats his dog !

Only having seen his tireless contributions here in these past few months, I think he embodied some of the Old Yankee spirit. The hard, rocky New England soil once yielded many such men who met life's challenges with dogged determination, wary of man's fallen nature, yet ever mindful of an eternal reward.*Godspeed.
