  1. Dear Eun Yong,

    for several months I am trying to contact Harty,
    all e-mails (different types) were returned.

    With great sadness I have learned today that Harty has passed away last year.

    I wish you strength and good health!

    Greetings and cheers,

  2. I as well tried to contact Harty today (Jan 27, 2022) only to find that he had passed on. I am very sorry to hear that. I worked with Harty at Babco Electric and had the pleasure to sit beside him… he had some great stories. I remember even bringing him back some trinkets from Babylon, where I had a business trip and we talked about that for days… You are missed and thought of still Harty. RIP old friend.
