      Mr. Crow was born on September 18, 1919 in Duster, TX. He died on December 6, 2005 in Salina, Ok.

      The son of James David & Alva (Hamlin) Crow, Harry was the 10th child of twelve and was the 7th son. Being raised around cattle his entire life he left school after the 9th grade to become a cowboy. After sharing limited success in that profession he performed numerous labor jobs until joining the U.S. Navy in 1943. He served on the USS Samar in the Pacific Theater. Upon his being honorably discharged, on a whim he decided to attend Beauty College. This was to lead him to what would become his career for over 20 years selling beauty supplies and teaching others how to use the Loreal products. He was in charge of major hair shows from New York to Los Angles and from Seattle to Miami and all parts in between. After his moving to Mayes County in 1962 he developed an entrepreneural streak he opened the Cash-N-Save Beauty Supply at 109 E. Graham in Pryor, Ok. In 1975 he opened the Patio Garden Restaurant in the back of the building. It was during that time that an out of work hair dresser came in and asked for a job. When he hired Dora Hocutt little did he know that he would find his best friend of his life? They would be together for the next 30 years becoming a major part in the lives of all of Dora's family. He treated her children and grandchildren as though they were his own. Harry never really retired, he continued to sell things having some degree of local notoriety as the "Peanut Man" and in recent years making and selling lawn ornaments. His turkey, trains, beetles, frogs and other critters cover many lawns all over Mayes County.
