Harry James Auer

January 19, 1976 — January 28, 2019

Harry James Auer, age 43, of New Albany, PA, passed away unexpectedly but yet peacefully on Monday, January 28, 2019, at his home with his loving family at his side.


          Harry was born on January 19, 1976, in Waverly, NY, a son of Alois Auer and the late Eileen M. Vargason Auer. He graduated from the Wyalusing Valley High School a member of the class of 1994.  He married his high school sweetheart the former Heather A. Robinson of New Albany on August 26, 1995. 


          Harry was currently a bus driver for the Sullivan County School District.  He was formerly employed by Arrow United where he worked for 17 years. He also owned and operated Dad’s Country Bar B-Q where he grilled for countless fund raisers in the community, and he was a diehard fan of TV series 24. His favorite season was the summer, where he would always say “It was never too hot, the hotter the better”. He really enjoyed going to the beach in South Carolina. He was at peace when the sun was shining, and he was the happiest when he was outside to enjoy it.


          Harry was a loving spouse and a supporting father.  He loved to hunt and was an avid Chicago Bears and Chicago Bulls fan.  He was a former wrestling coach and T-Ball Coach at Wyalusing schools.  He was an outgoing person who would help anyone, and thoroughly enjoyed helping all who needed assistance.
