Harry Edward Temple, 79, died peacefully at home on Sunday, March 8, 2020, shortly after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He was born on January 9, 1941 in Nyack, NY, the son of Trevor and Nellie (Timmerman) Temple.
Harry grew up in Byfield, MA and graduated from Newburyport High School. He earned an Associate's Degree from Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston, MA. In 1965 he married Marianne Moulton of Boxford, MA, and they moved to Perkinsville, VT, where they raised their family and lived for many years.

He later had his own business doing home repairs and other jobs and enjoyed working with his best friend Dennis.
Harry was an environmentalist and loved the outdoors. He served on his local conservation committee and was an active member of the Green Mountain Club for decades. He enjoyed hiking, bicycling, kayaking, and cross-country skiing and had a lifelong interest in cars. He liked talking with others and loved telling stories.

He is survived by his two daughters, Tricia Temple of Perkinsville, VT and Lisa Temple of Concord, MA; two grandchildren, Jordan Hom and Rachael Temple-McCabe of Perkinsville, VT; his brother, Robert Temple of Spokane, WA; and several nieces and nephews and their children. He will be greatly missed by his dog Eryss and his cat Jack.
