He took part in many sports in the Navy, including boxing and later pitched for a semi-pro baseball team. He returned to the University of Pennsylvania in 1946 under the GI Bill. While at Penn, he played on the nationally ranked "Munger Men" football team as a standout defensive back. He graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1950.

He was also one of the founding members of Cam-Phi. Cam-Phi is an independent Armenian athletic association that fielded many very competitive basketball teams through the 40's and 50's. Later generations would continue the Cam-Phi basketball tradition in the 70's and beyond. The Cam-Phi camaraderie drew the members together frequently for picnics and other gatherings.

Harry worked as a sales representative for Honeywell Instruments and later for Fluid Controls Company. He met and began dating Mary Torigian in June,1951. Mary and Harry dated for a year and were married on June 15, 1952 at Holy Trinity Armenian Church at Susquehanna and Marshall in Philadelphia.

Harry was an accomplished bridge player and won tournaments with Mary and with his Riverton Country Club team. Harry accumulated Master points by winning and placing in national tournaments. Mary and Harry lived an idyllic life in Moorestown, NJ for many years with a tennis court and swimming pool in the back yard. They hosted numerous tennis and pool get-togethers with family and friends.
After retirement, Mary and Harry spent their winters in Florida, but continued to come North to see family and friends during the summer. Harry took advantage of the warm weather in Florida to play golf and tennis during the winter. Mary and Harry enjoyed 40 years of the warm Florida sun.
