Harry's Story

BATH - Harry E. "Tunky" Inman Sr., 81, of Bath, passed away on Tuesday, September 15, 2015, with his family by his side. He was born in Bangor, on October 25, 1933, a son of Joseph D. and Bernice (Goodell) Inman. He grew up in Bangor and attended Bangor schools. After school Harry answered his call to duty and joined the Army in the 82nd Airbourne unit.

He was a hard worker and learned this at young age working with his father, logging, in the woods.  He carried that with him later in life to Bridgeport Conn, where he worked for the Public Works Department until 1962. Harry met the love of his life, Marilyn (Pye) from Phippsburg and was married in New York on April 2, 1957 and started a family together. In 1964, Harry and his family moved to Bath and called it home. For 30 years he worked at the Bath Public Works, retiring as Foreman in 1995.

Harry loved many things in life, and had a great affinity for the outdoors.  Lobstering and hunting were some of his more favorite hobbies. But the thing he loved more was family. Spending time with his grandchildren and his dog Dexter were the things he cherished most. He was also a proud member of the Bath Lodge of Elks.

He was predeceased by his loving wife of 49 years, Marilyn; a granddaughter, Jessica M. Inman; a brother, Warren "Bud" Inman; and a sister, Joyce Marie King. Harry leaves behind a daughter, Sharon Dalton and her husband Roger of Palm Coast FL; 3 sons, E. Wayne Inman and his wife Susan of Charleston S.C., David L. Inman of Bath, and Harry E. Inman Jr. also of Bath; 1 brother, Joseph Inman and his wife Kathy also of Bath; 4 grandchildren, Christopher S. Inman, Tyler W. Inman, Crystal J. Inman, and Jayme L. Dalton; 4 great-grandchildren; a sister-in-law Roberta Gilliam of West Point; as well as several nieces and nephews.

A graveside service will take place with military honors at Oak Grove Cemetery in Bath (entrance is on the Old Brunswick Rd) on Tuesday September 22, 2015, at 10 am with Pastor Dan Coffin officiating. To express your thoughts and condolences with the family please visit www.desmondfuneralhomes.com.
