Larry Dean Harp, age 67, was called to his heavenly home on Sunday, January 19, 2020, surrounded by his loving family. He was born in Harrison, Arkansas on December 13, 1952, to Clarence and Joleta (Dees) Harp. Larry was preceded in death by his parents and his nephew, Jason Cantrell.
Larry graduated from Harrison High School in 1971, where you could find him involved in numerous sports. He was very competitive, which resulted in many records and championship titles. He carried this competitive nature throughout his life.
Larry was married for 43 years to his wife Debbie and they had two daughters, Morgan and Stephanie. Larry retired as the District Superintendent for Arkansas Western Gas Company, where he worked for 34 years. He worked diligently to provide for his family and ensured they were taken care of. He was notorious for tackling challenging tasks around the house or farm. If he didn't have the tool to fix it, he would create a new tool.
Larry served faithfully in his church in various ways over the years from driving a weekly bus route to teaching Sunday school classes. There were many activities that Larry loved to do in his free time. He thoroughly enjoyed the beauty of the lake and the peace he gained while fishing. Larry spent countless afternoons on the lake with the church youth group teaching them how to water ski and giving endless tube rides. He also loved to tend to his cattle and work on his family farm.
Survivors include his loving wife, Debbie Harp; his daughters, Morgan Duncan and her spouse Benjamin and Stephanie DeWeese and her spouse Taylor; his sister, Shirley Cantrell and her spouse Larry; his grandson, Devin Duncan; his granddaughter, Elizabeth "Quinn" DeWeese; his granddaughter-on-the-way, Kinslee Harper Duncan; and numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews.
