Tribute to: Harry L. Mulder Jr. NNHS class of 1960 I say Ye, Harry Mulder I first met Harry in 1955 when we were playing football in the junior football league at the Newport News Recreation Center on Wickham Avenue. Harry was living in Marshall Courts and I was on 25th Street. (As an adult, Harry continued to follow Football and dearly loved the NY Giants.) By 1958 we had moved to Seven Oaks across from Marshall Courts and I met Harry again working as a Soda Jerk at Mushy's Soda Shop on West Avenue across from the Shipyard Apprentice School building.
What a Guy! Harry and his wife Dana (Gardner) also NNHS, attended Lee Hall Baptist Church. Not only did he teach Sunday School, but was also the Church Treasurer for many years. Harry became a success as a Realtor, (Principle broker), owning his own Real Estate firm.

|Just wanted to let you I am thinking of you, I knew Harry before he was a realtor. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.|

|Sorry to hear that Harry passed away. He was the best realtor that we have ever dealt with. He helped us out when selling our house in Hampton. We never forgot what he did for us and we looked forward to getting a Christmas card every year for the last 24 years. We will miss him a great deal.|
Dicky & Sandy Tracer (Toano,
VA ) - February
|Dana & Family,
I was so sorry to read about Harry; we went to Newport News High School together, I remember his sweet mother, Harry was always the best of all the kids at NNHS. Harry & I worked on a few deals together over the years, I am also a Realtor ( 33 years a Realtor). When you had a deal with Harry, he would do everything he could to get it closed. I always knew that Harry would have a nice family and do great in any thing that he wanted to do because he was being blessed by God.
I really feel bad for Harry's wonderful family because they have lost this loving husband, devoted father and grandfather. You all have been so blessed to have Harry Mulder in your life. I still remember Harry's laugh; in school I would say funny things just to hear him laugh.
My heart goes out to all his family and friends that knew and loved Harry; may God be with all of you at this time and in the days ahead. Ruby James

|Dana and Angie, My deepest sympathies go out you and your family. I enjoyed working with Harry during my mortgage days, he opened the door for me and made me work hard but was fair and I learned from him. I wanted to tell you that I thought he was good person. He made it known how much his family meant to him, I would loved to have seen him with his grandchildren.|

To Angie and her family,
We are deeply sorry for your loss. Your dad was a wonderful person who will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

Morning Has Broken
Words: Eleanor Farjeon
Music: Traditional Gaelic
1. Morning has broken like the first morning;
Blackbird has spoken like the first bird.
Praise for the singing! Praise for the morning!
Praise for them springing fresh from the Word!
2. Sweet the rain's new fall sunlit from heaven,
Like the first dewfall on the first grass.
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden,
Sprung in completeness where His feet pass.
3. Mine is the sunlight! Mine is the morning,
Born of the one light Eden saw play!
Praise with elation; praise ev'ry morning,
God's recreation of the new day!
