Elmer William Harbron Obituary
Elmer William Harbron, 91, passed away peacefully from complications of pneumonia on Tuesday, September 29, with his family at his side. Elmer was born December 9, 1928 in Hamilton, Ohio, to William Powell Harbron and Emma Louise Von der Haar. He married Doris Mae Bohlander on April 30, 1955, who preceded him in death earlier this year on June 3.
After graduating from Hamilton Catholic High, Elmer served as a Corporal in the Air Force National Guard Reserves. He later worked at Baldwin-Lima, and Bendix corporations in Hamilton, and enjoyed a lifelong career in sales, where he prospered due to the personal interest he took in his customers.
Elmer was a lifelong learner, and pursued many interests, including model plane building, biking, cartooning, WWII history, ham radio operating, and volunteering for the Civil Air Patrol. He was a particularly talented photographer, and earned many awards across southeastern Ohio. He and Doris enjoyed trips to Venezuela, Hawaii, California, several western states, and the east coast; Elmer had a particular love for the Florida beaches.
Elmer’s greatest joy was his family. Leisurely walks in the woods with his children, family picnics, and Sunday drives were simple pleasures. Later in life he adored spending time with his granddaughters.
Elmer is survived by daughters Judy Moyer (Charles Satterwhite, partner) and Suellen (Steve) Albert, son David, and three beloved granddaughters, Victoria and Hannah Albert, and Holly Moyer.
