Obituary Condolences

Downing, Harold Albert
came into this world in 1941 and suddenly left us on January 4, 2016 at the age of 74 in Maricopa, AZ. He was born in Waverly, OH to George and Maxine Downing that precede him in death. He is survived by his Daughter, Suzanne Marie Barnes (Steven), Siblings; Cheryl Jeanine, George Fredrick Downing, John N. Downing and Jacqueline Pless, who precedes him in death. Harold moved to Arizona from Ohio in the late 1950's. He raced stock cars and motorcycles at Manzanita Speedway into his late 20's. He was a welder for a few years and bought an 18 wheeler to drive. He worked independently transporting goods for several years before finally getting off the coast to coast route to drive locally for Ruan. He was a member of the Teamsters Local 104 for over 25 years before he retired in 2015. Harold had an affinity for helping those in need, be it people or animals. He was always helping others from little things to big things. He would rescue the strays he found along his travels and bring them home. Harold always helped those in need and will be greatly missed. A viewing will be held 10:00 AM, Saturday, January 16, 2016 at Greenwood Memory Lawn Mortuary Chapel, 719 N. 27th Ave. Phoenix, AZ 85009 followed by Graveside services at 11:00 AM in Greenwood Memory Lawn Cemetery.
