In the 1940’s, the family came east and established the “Lattner Machine Shop”. Harry loved his work, was a skilled tradesman, an innovator within stock car racing and enjoyed the challenges of his profession. His greatest delight was the design and building of his 1912 Mercer automobile. He was a man of many interests - fishing, golfing, bowling, snooker, puzzles, and reciting poetry.
