In Memoriam - Harry Ohanian

Recommended Posts

I just heard from his wife, Juanita, that Harry Ohanian passed away from metastatic prostate cancer this morning at 11:20. He had been under hospice care at their home in Florida for several months.


Harry was a long-time member of the NRG and of the Washington Ship Model Society, which he led as skipper from 1999 through 2000. He and I co-chaired the 2001 NRG conference, which may well have been the first conference of any kind to be held in Washington DC following the attacks of September 11.


Harry is survived by his wife, his son John and daughter-in-law Lori and two granddaughters.
