Allen Harlor Jr. Obituary
Harlor, Jr. Allen Douglas Harlor, Jr., M.D., "Buz Harlor" of Eugene, Oregon, passed away on February 4, 2013 of metastatic bladder cancer. He was surrounded by his family. He was born on March 23, 1936 in Columbus, Ohio to Margaret Flynn Harlor and Allen Douglas Harlor, Sr. Buz attended The Ohio State University where he graduated with a M.D. and found the love of his life, Jane Bowers Harlor. They married on June 13, 1959. Buz and Jane moved to Eugene in 1966 with three kids in tow and with two more children soon to be on the way. Buz joined Island Park Pediatrics in Springfield in 1966. Around that time Buz co-created the NICU in the Eugene/Springfield Area. He then moved his pediatric practice to Peace Health in 1987 where he concluded his 46 years in practice when he retired in 2012. Buz initiated and led many local, state and national efforts in support of the advocacy for children. Dr. Buz worked tirelessly to ensure that those who did not have a voice had a voice at every level. He will forever be remembered as a loving and devoted husband, father, Papa, brother, friend, mentor and physician. His incredible impact on the lives of many is immeasurable. Buz is survived by his "lovely lady", Jane of 53 years; and five children, Cynthia Sue Sjostrand, Kathleen Jane Stringfield, Elizabeth Claire Wathen, Christina Lynn VanBuskirk and Allen Douglas Harlor, III. He is also lovingly survived by 11 grandchildren; as well as his four sisters, Jean Thomas, Barbara Fitzgerald, Sally Myers, and Connie Magee. A memorial service will be held at St. Mary's Episcopal Church in Eugene, Oregon at 2 p.m., February 9, 2013.
