Harry Louis Kamataris, who grew up in Falmouth and spent most of his life on the Cape, died February 10 at the age of 70.
He was born in Clinton, the eldest of the five children of Harry A. and Audrey M. Kamataris. His parents moved to Falmouth from Clinton in 1950.
In his youth he played football and hockey and was a lifeguard. He was graduated from Lawrence High School in 1969 and then received a bachelor of science degree at Boston State College in 1975.
He was a financial professional, working for many years for New England Life. A business news brief published in the Enterprise in February 1996 reported that Mr. Kamataris had become “the Cape and Islands representative for Baystate Financial Services” and would be working out of his home in Woods Hole and Baystate’s headquarters in Boston as an agent handling insurance and investment services, retirement and estate planning, and group employee benefits.
Mr. Kamataris also was a member of the Freemasons. In his later years he developed a strong faith.
He leaves his three children, Harry Leonard Kamataris, Katherine W. Kamataris and David A. Kamataris; and his siblings, Paula H. Judge, John P. Kamataris, Jayne L. Reeves and Ann M. Rennie.
He was predeceased by his parents; his father died in 1990 and his mother died last month.
A celebration of his life is planned for a later date.
