Hap was an accomplished musician with a golden voice. His day gigs were many but included interior design in and around New England. His group, Jazz Galley, played in and around Boston, Massachusetts during the 60’s and early 70’s.

His sense of humor, his wide and expansive heart, his love of children and animals lives on in our memories of him. If love could have saved him he would be here with us…

In a world not always caring, Hap was a rarity—not a vindictive bone in his body. He was in our corner always and will be in our hearts always.
