Field Trial Hall of Famer, host of the New England Open Shooting Dog Championship, and one of New England's most oustanding field trialers and supporters of the sport, Harry Townshend died Friday, July 27, 2012, at his boyhood home in New Haven, Conn. He was 92.

He leaves Deb, his wife of 70 years, along with 5 children, and numerous grand- and great-grandchildren. Condolences may be sent to Deb Townshend at 709 Townsend Ave., New Haven, CT 06512-3140.

Harry will be sorely missed.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, Aug. 18, 2012. Details will be announced.
