How Did We Do?

Harry W. MacPherson, 90, passed away on February 19, 2017, in Englewood, Florida.

Whether he was on the golf course, enjoying a walk in the woods or taking to the ski slopes in New Hampshire, Harry MacPherson was a born athlete who believed life was best spent on the move.

Sports enthusiast, animal and nature lover and caring father and husband, Harry will be dearly missed.

Harry was born in North Andover, Massachusetts. At the age of 17, he was one of the youngest players to be recruited to the National Baseball League. A right-handed pitcher for the Boston Braves (1944), Harry also played in the minor league for several teams, including Atlanta, Denver, Dallas and others, through 1952. He served in the Navy during World War II.

When he met his true love, Wanda Lee Kenney, he traded in baseball for family life and found a new career with New England Telephone. Harry spent 30 years with the phone company and retired as an engineer in 1984.

Harry and Wanda, who passed in 1997, enjoyed a long and fulfilling retirement in Florida. Their later years included many rounds of golf, beach picnics, beautiful sunsets, family visits, time with their three adored grandchildren and endless laughs and good times with dear friends.

Harry leaves three children, Donald MacPherson and his wife, Robin MacPherson, Jon MacPherson and Linda MacPherson Davidson; three beloved grandchildren, Brian MacPherson, Todd MacPherson and Mack Davidson; and his little Schnauzer, Dutchess.

A memorial celebration will be held in the spring. Expressions of sympathy, in lieu of flowers, can be made in Harry's memory to the Fisher Center for Alzheimer's Research Foundation at Alzinfo.org.

Lemon Bay Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements. You may express your condolences to the family at lemonbayfh.com
