Charles K. Harry

April 12, 1991

Charles K. Harry, a retired locomotive engineer, died Tuesday at Carroll County General Hospital of heart disease. He was 70 and had lived at Carroll Lutheran Village.

Services for Mr. Harry were being held today at the Howard H. Hubbard funeral establishment, 4107 Wilkens Ave.

He retired in 1981 from what is now CSX Transportation after nearly 40 years of service, most of it with the predecessor line, the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad.

Mr. Harry, who was known by his initials, C.K., was born in Mount Airy. He served in the Army in World War II and was awarded the Purple Heart when he was wounded during the Battle of the Bulge.

He had been a trustee of the Lansdowne United Methodist Church, to which he belonged for 50 years.

He had been an adult leader for 35 years of several Boy Scout units in the Lansdowne area and received the Silver Beaver Award -- the highest given to adults by the Scouts -- for his work.

He is survived by his wife, the former Doris L. Hesterberg; two sons, Marvin L. Harry of Pasadena and Dwight D. Harry of Finksburg; three brothers, Wilbur E. Harry of Winter Haven, Fla., Robert W. Harry of Reisterstown and Kenneth R. Harry of Hampstead; and four grandchildren.

The family suggested contributions to the Lansdowne United Methodist Church.
