A life well lived.
If you drive by the bandstand this weekend, you’ll notice a banner that reads, “God Bless Harry Ulman – South Boston Will Miss You.” On Saturday, a funeral Mass will take place at Gate of Heaven Church for Harry, 87. A beloved member to the community, Harry had deep roots in South Boston from owning local businesses to his dedication to neighborhood charities and organizations.
South Boston Special Kids and Adults – a local organization committed to kids and adults with special needs – is one Harry Ulman held near and dear to his heart. He was the backbone of this group – a family filled with love and inclusion known for their annual talent show showcasing its members entertainment skills.
Harry was the retired chief court officer at Suffolk Superior Court. He was an Army veteran and a member of the Thomas Fitzgerald VFW Post.
In addition to being a past treasurer of Local 369 Boston Edison Co., South Boston Yacht Club and the St Brigid’s Sports Club and South Boston Special Kids and Adults, he was a member of the Castle Island Association and organized many trips locally and abroad.
Harry also was the previous owner of L Street Tavern and Farragut House. He was known and loved and the neighborhood of South Boston is brighter and better because of him.
For his dedication to the neighborhood, the bandstand at Marine Park was named for Harry back in 2018. Harry’s legacy will live on.
