He was preceded in death by his mother, Dorothy; brother, Donnie; and Uncle Leon Cogan.

The family would like to give a special thanks to his oncology office, Dr. Layhe; the McLaren hospice team and Mary.

    Marce and family,

    On behalf of the Dennis Harr family, we would like to give our deepest sympathy for your loss. “Duffy” as we know him, was such a terrific person. Dad truly admired him and loved him dearly.

    Dad and Duffy were such good friends and we can only hope they have half as much fun in heaven as they did here together.

    Our thoughts are with you.
