Harry Miliner of the Loudoun West Hunt (VA) has made his final point and now resides in perhaps a better place. Harry finally succumbed to cancer on July 21, 2011.

Harry came to hunting a bit later than many, not born of a hunting family (much like myself), but when he took up the sport he did so with a passion and conviction that revealed his true sportsman’s heart. Moving from his Maryland home to Northern Virginia where he was convinced the hunting was the best in the world (one of the few points on which we disagreed, as gentlemen will), Harry and his wife Dixie soon found a second home. With mentoring hunting friends such as Dr. Joe Rogers and Donna Rogers, MFHs along with Sherman Haight, ex-MFH and Peggy Haight, they quickly settled in and became an integral part of the Loudoun West hunting fabric. Harry was ultimately recognized as a more than competent Field Master for Loudoun West.

No one got more pure joy from foxhunting than Harry. He was a big man with a huge heart, and as a Field Master, he was warm and welcoming. He fully ascribed to John Jorrock’s old sentiment, "Tell me a man’s a foxhunter, and I loves him at once"!

Suffice it to be said by a very old friend, "Harry, you will truly be missed."

Martyn and I will miss him terribly. He has been a big and personal part of our lives, as well as with the LHW, since we first arrived in VA over 5 years ago. He was "overseer" of the painting and decorating of our abode on Valley View Farm so he spent some time here whilst we were settling into our new life. A great friend, an avid foxhunter and total supporter of us - I would have liked to have spent more time with him than we did but there was a ton of mutual respect between us.
Many condolences to Dixie and the remainder of the family. We love you.
