NORWICH – The Chenango County Board of Supervisors planned to attend the funeral services of one of their own in a group this afternoon, as they and others were very sad to learn yesterday of Harry Conley’s death.
Former Town of Sherburne Supervisor Harry Wayne Conley, 81, passed away Monday, Sept. 13, 2010 at his home. He retired from public service last year after 21 years on the town and county board.
According to Chenango County Board of Supervisors Chairman Richard B. Decker, Conley was known as a perfect gentleman. “I never knew him to lose his temper nor be short in any way with those who may have disagreed with him,” said Decker, who worked along side Conley for the past 14 years and counted him as a friend.
