Harry grew up in Connellsville Pennsylvania. His father was Harry Lee Guard, Sr and his mother’s name was Marian Fleming Guard. He had two brothers Robert and Donald, and two sisters Gladys and Louise. He was the second born child and the oldest of the three boys. He was loved, and looked up to as a big brother by all the other children. All of the children were active members of the Methodist church in South Connellsville, Pennsylvania, where their mother was the church pianist and youth choir director.
