Karl G. "Greg" Harr

Keyser - Karl G. "Greg" Harr, 72, of Keyser, WV, passed away on Saturday, November 13, 2021 at the home of his son and daughter-in-law, Nathan and Alicia Harr in New Creek, WV. He had been suffering from the ravages of dementia for several years.

Born on December 7, 1948 at Bolling Air Force Base in Washington, DC, he was a son of the late Karl "Beanie" and Mildred "Tootie" (Munsie) Harr. He also was preceded in death by a sister, Krista L. Turbin.

Greg was a 1966 graduate of Keyser High School. He joined the U.S. Air Force in 1966 and was honorably discharged in 1970. While in the Air Force, he spent 36 months with the NSA. He worked at the Westvaco Luke Mill (New Page) and retired in 2010 after 35 years of service. He and his son also owned and operated Harr's Gun Shop in Keyser from 2002 to 2008.

Greg umpired high school baseball for 15 years which he thoroughly enjoyed. He was an avid hunter and fisherman and loved watching his grandson, Hunter play sports. He was so proud of him!

Summers were spent on the South Branch where he and his family had good times. For many years, the highlight of his day was spending mornings at the Royal Restaurant, shooting the breeze with his buddies. He loved to talk and could strike up a conversation with anyone.

Greg is survived by his wife of 47 years, Naomi (Lambert) Harr; one son, Nathan Harr and wife Alicia of New Creek; his grandson, Hunter Harr; one sister, April (Harr) Blandin and husband Jonathan of Franklin, TN and a brother-in-law, Randy Turbin of Keyser. Also surviving are a sister-in-law, Rosalind Chesire and husband Tom of Westernport, MD; a brother-in-law, Dick Merson of Moorefield, WV; nieces, Jennifer Hamilton, Coby Turbin, Olivia Blandin and a nephew, Aaron Blandin; a grand niece, Tori Page Hastings and his dearly loved canine companion, his crazy pit-mix, "Beau."

At Mr. Harr's request, he will be cremated and there will be no services.

The Smith Funeral Home and Crematory, Keyser, is in charge of the arrangements.

The family requests that memorial contributions be directed to either the Mineral County Aging and Family Services, 875 S. Mineral Street, Keyser, WV 26726 or to WVU Hospice, 100 Pin Oak Lane, Keyser, WV 26726.

Condolences and personal reflections to the family may be left after Mr. Harr's obituary at smithfuneralhomes.net.
