CATAWBA ISLAND: Robert G. Harr, 68, of Catawba Island, passed away unexpectedly, Monday, November 28, 2011, at his home in Port Clinton, OH.
Bob was born May 14, 1943, in Greensburg, PA, the son of Paul Glenn and Edna (Yeskey) Harr. On August 13, 1968, in State College, PA, he married Elizabeth G. "Betsy" (Moore) Harr and she survives. Bob worked as a Healthcare Administrator and was the former President and CEO for the Heather Hill Hospital Health & Care Center, for more than 30 years. Bob was awarded the Alumni Recognition Award for Professional Excellence from the Pennsylvania State University College of Health and Science. He also received the Commitment and Leadership Award from the Greater Cleveland Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association. Bob will be greatly missed by his loving family and friends.
Bob was first and foremost a family man and a devout Christian. He believed service to others was his greatest calling. Bob was a prodigious, creative, thinker and visionary. He was always looking for ways to improve people's lives in new and unconventional ways. Bob enjoyed traveling. One of his great joys was exploring new places with his family. Bob had an eye for design and appreciated beautiful architecture, sculpture, art and music. His classically trained tenor voice could be heard in Church and the kitchen. Bob had an infectious sense of humor that drew people to him. His exuberance for life was second only to his true love, his wife of 43 years Betsy and his three adoring children and two beautiful grandchildren.
Survivors include his loving wife of 43 years: Elizabeth G. "Betsy" Harr of Port Clinton, OH; sons: Ryan W. (Becki) Harr of Dublin, OH and Randall G. Harr of Chicago, IL; daughter: Hilary E. (Steven) King of Chicago, IL; grandchildren: Abigail & Walker Harr; sisters: Karen (Dr. Dave) Marshall of St. Kitts, Is, Kathy (John) Corman of Springmills, PA and Heidi Harr of Jenkintown, PA; many loving nieces and nephews.
