Fred R. Harwart
June 7, 1937 – December 6, 2022
Fred breathed his first breath of Heaven December 6th while sleeping after a day spent hearing his wife, each of his daughters, son in laws and grandchildren share their love, memories, tears and prayers for All their blessings.
He lived 85 full years and won his battle with Parkinsons as he was embraced into the arms of his Heavenly Father. He fought the good fight of faith and finished his journey so well.
Fred was born in Camrose, Alberta, Canada. He moved to the United States and joined the Marine Corp. and served from 1960-1966.
In 1960 at the Sivils Drive Inn in Dallas, Texas, in his Uniform Fred met and fell in love with Judy Fagg. In a whirlwind romance, 9 months later on September 1, 1961 they were married. And NO the first born child wasn’t until 1963. And as our Daddy always said, “You know I loved your mother because we were married on the first day of dove season!”.
He worked as a Master Electrician for over 20 years, and was highly respected for his professionalism and work ethic….and that carried on as He and Judy started their own business ‘The Bladerunner’. Starting his own business was his dream and his passion and they loved traveling and working the shows. His children and grandchildren at some point in time worked with them creating their own memories and love of the business.
Freds generosity and kindness, his amazing strength and his Love for his family was shown in everything he did.
He is survived by his spouse of 61 years Judy Harwart.
