Evan Monroe Harris II Obituary
Harris, Evan Monroe, II
1918 ~ 2012
At the well-achieved age of 93, Dad passed away peacefully at home holding his two youngest children's hands. Born June 5, 1918 to Mary June and Evan Monroe Harris in Regina, Oregon, he was a product of his life experiences including logging, the Great Depression, the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), his duties in the Pacific Theater in WWII, studying Law at DU and his over 35 years working diligently as a loyal civil servant at the Colorado State Workman's Compensation Insurance Fund as their Subrogation Officer.
At the very root of Dad's happiness was his deep love for his wife, Betsy Brown, and his four children, Linda Kay Babcock (John), Evan M. Harris III (deceased), Leonard Allen Harris (Linda), Shirley Margaret DiUbaldo (Gary), seven grandchildren, four great-grandchildren, God children, foster children, sisters, brothers, nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and extended family.
Always carrying a one-man concert in his pocket, a harmonica solo or a beautiful song, ditty or yodeling could be enjoyed by all at a moment's notice. He also had a passion for fishing, words (a virtual walking dictionary), wry humor and training the family dogs to do funny tricks.
Evan M. lived life right and set a great example for others to follow in his footsteps - definitely part of the "Greatest Generation." We are happy and fortunate to have been part of his life and he ours. He will be sorely missed by all who loved him.
In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts can be sent to www.thedenverhospice.org whose services, advice and caring touches were so appreciated. A short graveside gathering to celebrate Evan's life will take place at 9 a.m., Friday, April 27, 2012 at Fort Logan Cemetery in Denver. Condolences can be sent to the family at evan.monroe.harris@gmail.com.
