Harry Brill was my professor of Intro Sociology at the age of 19 at the UMASS Park Square Campus in Boston, and I had Harry for two additional courses, he taught sociology in a down to earth way, and inspired me to major in sociology==upon which I taught many students at the undergraduate and graduate levels for over 45 years. Sometimes one person can make a major difference, in my life, and humanity. Harry was such a person. Harry has left a footprint that will ripple for eternity. The Process Continues.

I am saddened to just learn of Harry's passing by searching his name. Harry was my Sociology professor at UMass Boston back in the early 1980's. My brother and my wife also had Harry as their Professor, too. I had many classes (8+) with Harry and knew him well. He once wrote me a letter of recommendation. Harry always had a cup of coffee in his hand while the other hand was rubbing his neck and shoulder as he lectured the class. Harry was a down-to-earth regular guy. I will never forget when he said that a coffee shop is the best place to learn Sociology. He was right! Thanks for everything, Professor Brill. Peace and strength to his family and friends.

Clay and I moved in next door to Harry 2 years ago. We were lucky enough to meet him and his wife at the time. We absolutely loved hearing Harry practice his beloved saxophones, of which he had about 4 of them on display in his living room. Clay got so inspired by Harry that he started taking sax lessons again, an instrument he's had since high school with little skill. Harry was still sharp as a whip, with many stories and adored his wife. I can tell once she left us last year, plus the pandemic, this year would be extra tough on him. I told him if he needed anything, he should reach out. I often baked him treats or brought him dinners. Our last encounter with him was a couple of weeks ago when we both were inadvertently enjoying the live music that one of our neighbors plays every Sunday at the end of the block. He was listening on his porch as we walked by, and we all remarked how wonderful our community is and to enjoy the little things, even though life is tough now. It always made me happy that Harry had daily visitors to his backyard throughout the pandemic to keep his spirits high. We will surely miss this kind, charming and wonderful neighbor! One of a kind! Sending my condolences to his family, friends and our community <3

Harry was my neighbor who, although I didn’t know well, made quite the impression on our family. After writing him a note after his very beloved wife’s death, he showed up on our doorstep on Christmas Day and dazzled us with how sharp he was and how in tune he was with technology. I am so sorry I couldn’t keep in touch with him more during this strange (pandemic) time. I hope he knew and his family knows that he was very appreciated on our block and he will be very much missed. Sending my condolences to all his loved ones, friends and neighbors
