Harry Abbey

Scranton, PA March 25, 1948 ~ July 6, 2013 Date of Service: July 21, 2013



Harry Abbey, 65, passed away peacefully on July 6, 2013 in his home in Scranton, PA.  Harry was a devoted Natural Health Professional, designated as C.N.H.P. by the Trinity School of Natural Health, and served his community for 21 years.  Born on March 25, 1948 in Accra, Ghana where he was raised, he was the eldest son of the late Emanuel Turkson and Vida Oye Ayensu Abbey.  He came to the United States for education, earning his Bachelor of Arts degree from Shelton College in Cape Canaveral, Florida, and eventually settling in PA in 1982. 

Harry is survived by his loving brothers and sisters, Eddie, Nat, Rebecca, Elizabeth, Rose, Gladys, Ellen, Julie and step-sister Yaborkor Ga.  Many nieces and nephews including Nicholina Boateng and Gilbert Laryea also survive him. 

Harry loved being in nature and was an avid cyclist and hiker.  His interest in cycling led him to become a USA Cycling Official.  Harry also enjoyed painting and gardening.  He was a member of the Interested Adults and Afro-American Committees and sang in a concert by the Mount Zion Baptist Church choir in Wilkes-Barre, PA.  Above all else, Harry cherished his years helping his patients achieve physical and spiritual well-being.  Over the years, he maintained a practice in Seattle and Las Vegas, as well as Scranton and Hamlin, PA.  He had a unique connection with people and will always be remembered for his many gifts.

Family and friends are invited to attend a memorial service on Sunday, July 21 at Myrtle Street United Methodist Church, 840 Harrison Avenue, Scranton, PA at 2pm.

To all of Harry's Family,
There were only a few times in the past two decades we had the fortune to be with Harry, but the times we remembered him since are incalculable. He was such a gentle, kind and loveable guy, whether he was on a YMCA hike or helping someone who needed him. We are saddened by his passing, the sadness lessened only by the thought he will live on in the memory of all those whose lives he touched.
With Sincere sympathy,
Carl and Barbara, Y Hikers happy to have walked a while with Harry.
