From the 1927 Lucky Bag:
Harry was lost when USS Atik (AK 101) was sunk by a German submarine 300 miles east of Norfolk, Virginia on March 26, 1942. None of her crew survived the sinking and a large explosion as the ship sank. He was the ship's commanding officer.
The Naval History and Heritage Command has details of the Q-ship program, and of Atik's brief history.
Harry's sister was listed as next of kin.
