Harry K. Sickler, Jr., CPA

Harry K. Sickler, Jr., CPA is the founder of Sickler Tarpey & Associates. He grew up in his hometown of Tyrone, Pennsylvania. After graduating from Tyrone High School, he then went on to college at Notre Dame. As a Notre Dame graduate he spent two years as a Marine before he became an accountant for Price Waterhouse in Los Angeles. In 1958, he moved back home and worked for his cousin Oliver Schell’s accounting firm.

Through the years Harry took over the company and has molded it into what it is today. He has helped the local community in so many ways such as saving the Tyrone Hospital from bankruptcy and has personally been involved in many business ventures. He officially retired in 2012 and sold part of the firm to Randy Tarpey. We are very thankful for everything he has done for the company and hope to continue his legacy at the quality it deserves.
