Brownville and Bradenton, FL - Harry George Ade, 69, passed away in the arms of his loving wife on Wednesday, December 17, 2014. He was born in Passaic, New Jersey on July 21, 1945, the beloved first-born son of the late Harry and Victoria Ade. Harry's life's work was the hospitality industry. He was the consummate entrepreneur operating hotels and restaurants. His exuberant personality, whether behind the check-in desk or the bar, insured success and a following of dedicated patrons. In 1965, he met the love of his life, Jean Politz, and they married in 1972. Together they were a dynamite team, with Harry working the front of the house and Jean managing the books. Over the years, with his brothers, Harry and Jean owned and operated several establishments including AJ's, The Riversedge, The Heritage Motor Lodge, the Phenix Inn and The Pamola Motor Lodge. Harry loved to hunt, fish, and cruise in his float boat at his favorite place on earth, Schoodic Lake. Harry is survived by his wife of 42 years, Jean (Politz) Ade; his brother and best friend, Richard C. Ade and his wife, Lisa, of Portsmouth, NH; his sister, Victoria Sciarello and her husband, Rich, of Lincoln Park, NJ. He was the much loved �Uncle Har� and the voice of Santa Claus each Christmas and will be sadly missed by his nieces, Victoria Kohut and her husband, Bill, and children, William and Megan of East Hopatcong, NJ; Chrissy Sciarello of Lincoln Park, NJ; Kristen Ade of Portsmouth, NH; and nephews Robert Ade and his wife, Alyson and their children Ainsley, Ashton, Beckham, Balack and Aiya of Milo; Richard J. Ade and his wife, Maria, of Bradenton, FL; and his surrogate sons, Arthur and Roland Hathorn, along with the entire Politz Family. The family gives thanks to the outstanding caregivers and staff of the Pines of Sarasota, and respectfully requests donations in his memory to: The Pines of Sarasota Foundation, 1501 North Orange Avenue, Sarasota, FL 34236.
