The Passing of Harry Schaffer

22 01 2011

I’m sad to announce that Harry Schaffer passed away. Harry was one of the original members of FINE. For many years he was the voice of FINE, handling all of the publicity with the media for the FINE meetings.

When told of the passing, one of the comments was “Harry was a great man—I’m sorry to hear of his passing”. I remember Harry being a gentle man, having a good sense of humor, and being committed to the success of FINE.

At the FINE meeting last Thursday, I read excerpts from his obituary highlighting Harry’s accomplishments, some of which I was not aware of, like him having a private pilot’s license. Here is a link to his obit –

Harry will be missed.
