From the Memorial

Harry served as president and was one of the founders of the B'nai Shalom in about 1967 or earlier; an organization that provides fellowship and genealogical research assistance to Jewish converts to the LDS faith. (A memorial comment: "He is what made B'nai Shalom, B'nai Shalom. I'm thankful for his kindess and how he treated everyone with such love and respect. Grateful I got to know him.")

In 1976, Harry was called as the chairman of a special committee that wrote training manuals, used by those teaching people of Jewish ancestry. See history. He served in numerous church callings throughout his life.

He was born April 14, 1925 in Duluth, Minnesota to George Gordon Glick and Ethel Sarah Hirsch. Harry was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He married Ruth Elaine Adams on September 21, 1947; later solemnized in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. Harry and Ruth served faithfully as ordinance workers in the Salt Lake Temple for many years. Together they raised five children: Steven, Barbara Mason , Lori Turner, Kenneth and George. Ruth passed away August 27, 1983. Also survived by brother Andrew J. Glick.

Harry later met Mary Susman Wilkinson, while they were both working as tour hosts at the Visitor's Center on Temple Square. They were married on March 21, 1986 in the Jordan River Temple. Harry and Mary served a mission together in Honolulu, Hawaii from 1989 to 1990.

Harry was trained as a bombardier in the Army Air Forces during World War II. He graduated from Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles, California, with a degree in Architectural and Industrial Design. After graduating, Harry was accepted into the Frank Lloyd Wright Fellowship. He later worked as Chief of Construction for the Veterans Administration.

Harry was an avid sports car enthusiast, prolific writer, and inspirational speaker. He was loved by all who met him. His influence will be felt forever.
