David Eugene Harr was born in Cleveland, Ohio on 3/12/1943 .He passed on 12/8/20 after many years of dementia with behavioral issues. He lost his wife of 56 years 2 months prior to his own death. David was physically strong, but mentally his only connection to reality was his loving wife Linda. His heart was broken after she passed and he could no longer be without her. He will be dearly missed by so many especially by his family; son Troy; daughter-in-law Wendy; grandson Tyler; and his sister Ethel (Dolly) and her family. All his life David enjoyed and thrived in an environment were he could be busy and work with his hands. He was a proud, hardworking, honest, friendly and stubborn man. In the Navy he helped repair ships among other items while learning his lifelong trade in metal fabrication. While he was on shore leave he met Linda. They quickly fell in love and were married. After the Navy they returned to Az. Where he worked for Reynold’s Aluminum for 17 years until they closed. This led him to Salt River Project (S.R.P.) where he worked until he retired as the working Foreman in 2008 after 23 years. He took great pride in his job was very proud to be an S.R.P. employee. He enjoyed the comradery of his fellow associates and always bragged about them and the company. It gave him great joy to look back over his career and share his accomplishments and special assignments to anyone that would listen. S.R.P. was an integral part of David’s life but it wasn’t his whole life, his family was the most important part especially his grandson. He enjoyed the time he spent with his grandson sharing his knowledge and time, supporting him with any activities he was interested in at the time. David loved keeping busy you could always find him working in the garage or yard; tinkering or rebuilding something; visiting with neighbors or anything to keep busy. However he enjoyed the family activities the best outdoor activities like fishing, camping, off-roading. He dreamed of traveling the USA with Linda and family in his fifth wheel and having many adventures riding through the country. Maybe even visit a few casinos. They enjoyed going to Harrah’s often, David spent many hours watching Linda win after he lost all his money of course they always said they just went for the buffet. David and Linda had a long relationship filled with ups and downs like most couples. They loved each other very much .David would often bring Linda little just because gifts. Linda was David’s anchor to reality, love, life, happiness and family. She kept him grounded and engaged, gave him purpose so when she got sick it was very difficult for him. He devoted himself to be her caregiver to support and care for her every day. Which he did until the day she left. When he lost his anchor he lost his world and will. Now they are together again, on a beautiful lake happily peacefully fishing.
