I'm looking forward to manning the NPT Lover's Lane trail head tomorrow!

Out on the Nickel Plate Trail:
My first encounter this year with a coast to coast hiker on the NPT... Nice visit with John from Texas who started his cross country voyage on March 3, in Delaware! He hopes to be in San Francisco this sept. Little side note: he earned the nick name of PJ because weather forced him to spend a night in a Porta John!!!! Follow his trip on johnwalksamerica on Facebook. Courtesy of Jim Yates. #NPTalert

I am so sorry to hear this.

God creates each of us with unique and special gifts and Harry's gift was to build things with boundless energy. I was privileged to work alongside and under the direction of Harry as He supervised and engineered the construction of our beloved Nickel Plate Trail. Our prayers go out to Harry's family and many friends. We love you Harry Denham! You will be missed but never forgotten! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™

he is my neighbor and was my kids bus driver

Truly one of the greats....he will be sadly missed but never forgotten

So very sorry to hear this. He was a tireless worker for the trail. It would have been much harder to get all the work done if not for Harry. He was a wonderful friend to many and will be sorely missed. Mel and Joan Smith

Harry was very special and he will be missed. A dear friend.

Harry became synonymous with the Nickel Plate. It was his unending energy and enthusiasm that led to all the early work in building a great linear park. Some portion of the trail or one of his bridges should be renamed in his honor. Can't imagine the trail without him! We are sad today and will miss him. Mimi and Jim Berkshire.

Sorry to hear
