Harry Dave Bacon

Ellensburg, WA

Harry Dave Bacon, 81, of Ellensburg, WA, and former Quincy resident, passed
away peacefully at his home on February 11, 2017. He was born November 22,
1935, to Wilfred and Mary (Renn) Bacon in Bottineau, ND.

After visiting family in Poulsbo, WA, he decided to stay and make Poulsbo his
home. Shortly after arriving, he joined the Carpenter’s Union apprenticeship
program and began working in construction. He met his sweetheart, Sharon
McGinty, in 1953 and the couple wed in 1956. They remained in Poulsbo, where
he continued to work in the construction industry.

In 1973, they purchased a farm in Quincy, WA, which transformed into Twin Firs
Sod Farm, making him the original “Mr. Sod”. When Harry was not working, his
time was spent raising and enjoying his family, spending as much time as
possible at the family cabin in the Colockum hills. He enjoyed wildlife,
snowmobiling, the outdoors, and traveling. He enjoyed being a member of and
supporting the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.

He is survived by his wife of 61 years, Sharon; sons, Mark of Goldbar, WA,
Kent (Kim) of Quincy, WA, and Bill of New Mexico. He leaves behind seven
grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; and nieces and nephews. He was
preceded in death by his parents; infant son, Dave; and son, Daryl. It was
often said that Harry did not know a stranger and he will be missed by many.

A Celebration of his Life will be at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, February 22,
2017, at Faith Community Church, 1005 10th Ave SW, Quincy, WA. A lunch
reception will follow. Remembrances are suggested to a charity of your choice.
Please leave a memory for the family or sign their online guestbook at Scharbach’s Columbia Funeral Chapel, Quincy, WA, is
assisting the family with arrangements.
