Harry Ailster (r.) co-starred with Sally Beckwith in
Act One's production of Driving Miss Daisy.
Word came late Thursday evening concerning funeral arrangements for Plainfield's beloved Harry Ailster.
Having survived all his siblings -- Harry was the youngest of seven -- and with no close family, the arrangements are being made by Harry's goddaughter, who lives in Freehold.
Service are scheduled for next Thursday (August 18) at the Freeman Funeral Home in Freehold. Friends will gather for a service at 2:00 PM. No obituary has been published in the newspapers yet, but you can check the funeral home's information here.
As the time and place are not likely to be convenient for many of Harry's Plainfield friends, some of them are making plans for a local commemoration of his life.
I will post details as they become available.
