    To Karen and family, so sorry to hear about Harry’s passing. I sat with Harry and Karen at the last Warwood reunion and really enjoyed talking to them. All of us in our Warwood class got along well and I think enjoyed our times at Warwood High. Harry was a real interesting guy. May God bless his soul. Bob Kota.

  2. To Karen and Harry’s family,

    So sad to hear about Harry’s passing. We went to elementary school together and Karen and I were room mates in DC.

    His obituary highlights some of his many gifts to the world.

    He will be missed.

  3. Dr. Taylor was a professor at Marshall University. I took many of his courses. He taught with respect and all of his students loved him. I have become close friends with his wife Karen. They were a wonder couple. Many prayers to the family. He’ll never be forgotten.

    Harry and I met as law students at the West Virginia College of Law. He was a wonderful friend through the years, and I will always remember his smile. It was an honor to know him. Mary and I will keep you in our prayers. Love, Tom and Mary McQuain
