NORTH OAKS, Minn. — KARE 11 has some sad news to share about one of the more memorable characters from the Land of 10,000 Stories.
Harry Camp passed away Monday morning at the age of 108. You may remember Harry from earlier this year, when he played an epic cribbage game with 105-year-old Don Carruth.
Harry’s career was in forestry, but he was equally passionate about cribbage. In retirement he organized the cribbage league at Waverly Gardens in North Oaks, where he lived.
Harry’s wife Mryna says Harry passed in his sleep after spending a wonderful Easter Sunday with family. At the time of his death, Harry was thought to be the oldest man in Minnesota, and the 14th oldest man in America.
