This is a painful way for me to have to honor and tribute you both. I close my eyes everyday and nignt and wish and pray that our family could return to the way it was...and is supposed to be for many years to come. The terrible grief of not being with you on this eaarth is undoubtably more deeeply felt every minute. There is so much for you to both be here for!!!! Tracy, Lori and I have just begun our lives, and not only is Alexa only 6 but you now have a beautiful new grandson too.
My heart aches every time I think of how unfair life has been. I was blessed anough to have been created by the most caring, kind, selfless, compassionate, and loving parents. Yet I was not allowed to have you here long enough.
People often speak of guardian angels watching me, but you both already were angels in my life. I miss you sooooo...... much! I hope you will visit me in my dreams. Looking at pictures is very difficult, Because you look the same as you did when you left. Young and HAPPY with so much to look foward to. You spent 37 years together planning for a long life with your cherished family. This makes me angry, far beyond any I have felt before.
As tears are now falling, I cannot write anymore.
Those colleagues that know my father, know what a true hero and caring, fair, sensitive, honest generous, intellectual and intelligent man he was. And....as for my mother, it should be obvious that his person is greatly similiar to hers. They are the epitome of what I believe a marriage should be.
I love you Mom and Dad.
Forever missing you, your daughter,
I miss you terribly dad, every second of every day. My dad was the best father anyone could ever hope to have. I just wish I could have had him here longer. I know he is with mom now, whom he missed so much. I love you mom and dad and we will all be together again some day.
Mr. Taback was the executive vice president in risk control strategy and consulting and a managing regional director of Marsh & McLennan, where he worked for 30 years. Although he was a lifelong resident on Staten Island, Taback conducted 60 percent of his business traveling throughout the United States, Japan, England, and other foreign locations, giving lectures on risk management. He completed his undergraduate degree at New York University and then became a chemical engineer. He was a highly respected innovator at Marsh & McLennan. Taback also served on the National Safety Council of Risk Management.
Taback often said that that he couldn't retire because there were too many people at the company whom he wanted to help. But he did have retirement plans, including teaching college chemistry and traveling.
Taback was a member of the Forsgate Country Club, where he golfed and celebrated family events. He was also an avid Giants fan and a coin collector.
More than just a businessman, however, Taback was a family man. As Cheryl Taback remembered, "He left work at work. Home was time for us. His main goal was that we were all taken care of, that everything was secure. When my mom passed away, he assumed the role of mom and dad. He made meals, did laundry. I think he was rare, as far as people's dads go. In the office, there was a big joke that if you could come back to life as someone else, you'd want to come back as Harry's daughters."
"The past year was particularly difficult for my dad," Cheryl Taback noted, "because my mom passed away last October." Taback and his wife, Jean, had been married for 34 years. They always did the New York Times crossword puzzle together, and they always took family vacations, regardless of the children's ages. A few months after his wife passed away, Taback and his daughters took a cruise in southern California and the Mexican Riviera. Their father wanted to reassure his children that the family bond remained strong.
Taback is survived by his three daughters, as well as Tracy's daughter, Alexandria, 6.

As you may recall my family adopted a Basset Hound puppy shortly after 9/11 and "Harry" is a happy 7 year old mature member of our family. I got into a staring contest with him last weekend and he gave that look - you know that look you used to give me whenever I needed to get over something that was bothering me. So I sat back, took a deep breath and said to myself, Harry Taback must be smiling right now!
We miss you! You probably know that your Giants and Mets are doing just fine these days!
Former Marsh Colleague
Harry, thanks for being my friend. I wish I had done as much for you as you did for me.
Terry Barton, Marietta GA
I am so terribly sorry for this pain that you must endure. I think about you often and wonder how you are doing. I am always here for you if you ever need a friend. I'll pray for you always.
leaders or bosses being self-serving, I think
about Harry Taback. Because he was exactly the
I knew Harry Taback some 25-30 years ago from
M&MPC. At the time I was fascinated and delighted
with his personal and management manner. He had
the time and insights to share about career and
further schooling. He seemed to bring out the
best in everyone. I remember him showing us photos of his girls and speaking glowingly about
his wife. He was so very generous to make us
all feel important and that we could make a difference together.
I came to this page prompted by the wish to thank
Harry after all these years. I am so saddened that I can't let him know that I've carried his
presence with me all these years, and that he has
continued to enrich my life. I'd like his girls
to know my thoughts on how very special a person
I've been thinking of Harry for the last few hours today after meeting a new Marsh employee from New York and talking briefly about how that terrible day impacted all of us at Marsh.
Harry helped me get to where I am with Marsh today, and helped in a mentoring, father-like manner with compassion and vision.
Great people live on in time through our memories. I remember Harry-and think of him and all the other Marsh colleagues lost that day-thankful that I had the opportunity to call them friends.
As the years roll bye, you will realise that your dad was more than a gaurdian angel that touched the lives of his colleagues in Europe and America but also in Nigeria. He personally supported and guided me in the development of our local loss prevention services to its enviable state in our West African Sub-Region. He was a friend and I know that he is resting in peace of our Creator. Let his goodness remain a source of joy and strength for you and the rest of your family. Our deeds are judgement for our souls and their positiveness gives us Peace.
Harry was a Great Man. Should destiny route you or any member of your family to Nigeria, please keep in touch.

It's been two years since I asked "Where is Harry?"
It's been two years and I still remember the poker games in Phoenix, the vision he had for his organization, and his dedication to his colleagues.
It's been two years and I'm only now I'm beginning to understand how important a person can be to an organization, his profession, and his friends.
It's been two years and I remember - and I won't forget.
I cannot even imagine the pain you and your sisters are feeling with each passing day. I haven't spoken to you since the summer of 2001 but that didn't mean you weren't in my heart and thoughts. I learned of your Dad's passing by looking your name up on Yahoo on Valentine's Day. I surely wasn't expecting to see your father a victim of the 9-11 attacks. My heart went into my throat, as I sat here saying, 'No...No, it can't be...' I am not really sure why such evil things happen, but I guess as long as their is a God, there is also a devil. Reading your tribute(s), I can honestly feel and hear the pain and anger. I am so sorry that I did not know earlier, please accept my deepest condolenses. I am so lucky to have known you and your family, as you've all remained in my heart for obvious reasons.
You and your family always treated me with the utmost respect and love, that will remain with me always.
May God bless you and your family always...
I am incredibly sorry to hear about your mom and dad. I would have written sooner, but I had no idea that either of your parents had passed away. In fact, I learned about your dad while I was watching the scroll of names at the bottom of the screen on CNN last night. I spent the night praying it was a different "Harry Taback".
Words cannot express how sad I am for you and your sisters, Lori and Tracy. The only consolation I have is that I know how close your family is and that you will remain strong for each other.
Your mother and father treated me very well, and I always enjoyed their company. I will never forget them, nor will I forget the times we shared together.
You, Lori, Tracy, and Lexi are in my thoughts and prayers.
Harry was more than a colleague both then and since. He was a friend, one of the few I have kept in touch with from M&MPC, since leaving more than 20 years ago.
When I was an M&MPC Manager in Boston Harry and Jean made a point of stopping up every summer so that we could have dinner together at the 'HillTop' Steak House.
He was a special person to me, and I miss him.
You are always in my thoughts.
Harry you will never be forgotten! Ever!
