the service of others, leaving an indelible mark on the hearts of those he touched. Harry

Burden. After a long and fulfilling journey, Harry has now entered eternal rest.
Harry met his future wife, Carron Stuckey in 1964 when they were playing together in a
folk band.They married on June 3, 1966, and theirs was truly a marriage made in
Heaven. God blessed them with almost 58 years together in this life and eternity
together in the next life.
Harry’s unwavering commitment to spreading love, compassion, and the teachings of
faith made a lasting impact on the Johnsville Church of Christ family where he
ministered for 12 years. Throughout his ministry there, he officiated countless weddings
and funerals, delivered countless inspiring sermons, and provided solace to many in
need. A life-long student of the Bible, Harry taught Bible classes for more than 30 years.

degree in aerospace engineering and began working at Kelly Air Force Base in San

Kelly Air Force Base. In 1977, Harry earned a master’s degree in logistics management
from the Air Force Institute of Technology in Dayton, Ohio.
From 1986 to 1988, Harry worked at the Pentagon and was primarily responsible for
development of military budgeting for the Air Force. In 2000, he retired after 30 years of
service as a civilian employee of the United States Air Force, and he and Carron moved
