Harry Marshall Way, 84, of Westerly, passed away peacefully Saturday, January 27th, surrounded by his loving family at Westerly Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center. He was the devoted husband of MaryAnne (Young) Way. Born in Stonington, CT on September 25, 1939, he was the son of the late Harry F. and Caroline (Ide) Way.

Harry had a lifelong love of fixing automobiles.

After his honorable service, he worked for many years at Murphy Chevrolet, Posi-Seal in North Stonington, CT and then at United Builders Supply in Richmond, RI where he worked as a mechanic until his retirement. He taught all of his children the value of hard work and to take pride in doing things right. Harry enjoyed working in his yard, gardening, playing with his dog Abby, and watching the Red Sox, along with the occasional trip to the casino.

Besides his wife MaryAnne, he leaves his four children, Harry Scott (Karen) of Westerly, David (Lisa) of Derry, NH, Jeffrey (Kim) of Baldwinsville, NY and Melissa of Westerly; his grandchildren Courtney (Courtland), Kelsie (Mike), Nicholas (Autumn), Hannah, Jacob, Carson and Caleb; his great-grandson, Bennett; his brother Charles D.
