Harry Pincus died March 29, 2022, at the age of 89. He was born November 16, 1932 in Abescon, NJ to Alexander Pincus and Catherine Powers Pincus, predeceased. In Abescon, NJ, he worked with his family on a farm where they raised pigs and turkeys. He graduated from Pleasantville High School in 1950 and soon joined the US Navy, spending 4 years there.

He worked at Bradenton Auto Parts for 15 years prior to opening his own business in 1971, Harry's Auto Supply and Machine Shop. In 1994 he sold the business to his kids.

After retirement they bought a motorhome and traveled all across the US and Canada. He volunteered for several years at St. Vincent De Paul Thrift Store and made some lasting friendships.

Harry was always one for a good joke or just making you laugh. He loved his afternoon cocktail of Canadian Mist and water.
