While on leave in 1945, he met the love of his life, Eleanor Leith, in Hampton Beach, N.H. Harry and Ellie had been married for 61 years. In 1947, their daughter, Linda, was born and the family relocated to Hyattsville, Md. It was here that Harry began his career with the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission as a surveyor.

It was Harry's wish to be cremated. He would like to wait for his wife, Ellie, and be buried with her in the family plot in Eastport, Maine.

He also loved entertaining people by singing, playing the guitar and reciting poetry. John was great with his hands and worked as a carpenter with the Hatt boys prior to leaving St. Stephen. He had a passion for dogs and made sure his dog was well taken care of before he passed on. At his request, John was cremated and his ashes were buried at a cathedral of nature, private family graveside service in St. Andrews Rural Cemetery. The service was presided over by Father Paul Riley and assisted by John’s brother, Tony Miller. At the graveside service, Tony spoke on the Gospel according to Luke, The Good Samaritan Story.
