Harry Vogel Obituary, Death – Harry Vogel of Surprise Lake Camp, New York, has sadly died unexpectedly, leaving loved ones and family and the entire community in grief and sadness according to an online share. “Sincere condolences are extended to you and your family on the loss of Harry Vogel, who passed away earlier today. He was a beloved member of the Salt Lake City community. To All of the Wonderful People Who Make Up the SLC Community Please accept our deepest sympathies. Harry was a figure from legend, and he will be remembered in that capacity for the rest of all eternity.
One of the reasons that he will indelibly be a part of the legacy of Surprise Lake Camp is the staggering magnitude of the impact that he had on campers, staff, and Board members over a period of more than seven decades. He was a part of Surprise Lake Camp for more than 70 years. At this year’s annual Spring Shabbat and on Harry Vogel Day during the summer, we celebrated Harry and his career as a camp counselor. This year, Harry was all smiles the entire time, and it was a joyous occasion for everyone involved.
The year in question is the one that saw both of these occurrences take place. During the course of the summer, it brought Harry a great deal of happiness to see both campers and staff members wearing their Harry Vogel Day t-shirts, and he cherished the time he got to spend with Teenside campers on Windsurfing Wednesdays. Harry Vogel Day was created in honor of Harry Vogel, who founded the camp that bears his name. On the third Thursday of every month in August, people gather to celebrate Harry Vogel Day.
Harry gave the entire camp everything he had, and as a consequence, each and every one of our lives are better off as a result of having had the opportunity to get to know him and spend some time with him. Let us not wallow in grief over Harry’s passing while we are thinking about Bobbi, Joanie, and Missy; instead, let us celebrate the full life that he led and the wisdom that he shared with us along the way rather than wallowing in grief over his passing. Let us, rather than wallowing in sorrow over his passing, celebrate the full life he led and the wisdom he bestowed upon us along the way.”
