Herald Dwayne "Hank" Harrington Obituary
Herald Dwayne "Hank" Harrington, 91, of Shelbyville, died Tuesday, May 22, 2018, at his home.

Hank was born Aug. 5, 1926, in Waterloo, Iowa, the son of Seth and Ardath (Mann) Harrington. On June 20, 1953, he was united in marriage to Mabel Claus at her parents' home in Kinderhook, Ill. She survives.

Hank enjoyed coon hunting with friends in his Model T in the early 1940s while working at Lovegreen's and also running "the Model Garage" with his father in Palmyra, Mo., up until the time he enlisted in the U.S. Army during World War II from February 1946 to July 1947. He was stationed in Japan and was among the first of the Occupational Forces to enter Hiroshima, Japan, after the dropping of the atomic bomb. Upon returning to the states, Hank married and started a life of farming and mechanical work in Shelbyville, Mo. Hank was a avid outdoorsman and enjoyed many activities such as fishing, hunting, farming and heavy-machinery operation. He passed on these skills and traditions to his sons and grandchildren. Hank was a devoted member of the Saint Andrew's Lodge of Shelbyville. He earned the title of master mason in 1955, and worshipful master in 1963 as well as 1970. He was awarded his 60-year pin May 10, 2015, to recognize his years spent as a Freemason.

Hank is survived by two sons, Herald Harrington and wife Norella of Cornville, Ariz., and Pete Harrington of Shelbyville; five grandchildren, Jared, Taylor, Aubrial, Geiler and Ronael; and one niece, Lois Constantz of Canton, Mo.
