Notes about Harry Good [19]:

Spent many summers with his family at Lake Shipshewanna, Indiana (1930-1980)

Bought his Dad's cottage after Joe died and sold it in the early 1980's. [20]

Shipshewanna Lake was the site of many big reunions in the 1940's with wicked croquet games on Joseph & Maytie Good's front lawn by the lake, much yelling and challenging of who hit who before and after which wickets. Relatives from the State and as far away as California & Florida were there. Harry's Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, brothers, sister, children would be there. Lots of food, games, swimming, talking, boating.

Excerpt from the Eulogy:

Harry fought the fight, he won the race. He had been a winner in life-a great coach and teacher, a great liver of life. These final years may have been the toughest fight, his hardest race, his biggest challenge. He suffered blindness, increasing dementia and immobility as well as the loss of his beloved companion and wife. Yet he did so with poise and humor intact and with his characteristic stoicism.

Harry's love was sports and this love was the gift he gave to all those whom he reached. He said at 81, as quoted from the newspaper, "I'm pretty much of an outdoor person. I've had an active type existence. Any nice day I can't stand to be indoors so I'm outdoors. Period.... Bring on the sport. I'm ready.

His passion for sports moved him to draw out and develop athletes without regard to creed or color.
