JOHN MARION HARFORD
John Marion Harford was born to John S. and Donna (Phillips) Harford on May 27, 1941, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. He took his last breath of life at his home on April 4, 2021, and is now in Jehovah God's memory.
Johns' favorite things in life were camping, hunting, anything outdoors, vintage automobiles (1969 and older), fitness, weightlifting, custom knife collecting and spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren. He was proud of his 33 years of service to the city of Cedar Rapids with the streets department. He was always ready to lend a helping hand whenever needed. He was not a big talker, but his actions and character spoke loud and clear for him.
Survivors are his wife, Judy; daughters, Dawn Loughren of Coggon, Marcie (Jason) Weber of Lisbon and Crissie (Kent) Osborn of Cedar Rapids; sons, Jason (Kim) Harford of Central City and Dustin Harford of Alburnett; grandchildren, Brenden (Tina) Sauer, Dylan Harford, Jake Weber and Kaylee Osborn; step-grandchildren, Amanda Pomeroy, Heather Schlosser, Amy Eastman, Angie Odean, Madison Weber, Wyatt and Peyton Osborn; nine great-grandchildren; sisters, Charlie McNitt and Carol (Butch) Longerbeam; and brothers, Delbert Harford and Terry (Diana) Harford.
He was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Donna May Swenson; sister-in-law, LaDonna Harford; brothers-in-law, Leland Swenson and Bill McNitt; and sons-in-law, Al Odean and Mike Loughren.
Per his wishes, there will be no funeral. His family will hold a private celebration of life at a later time. In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund has been established in his name. Please send cards to 206 Roosevelt St., P.O. Box 87, Alburnett, IA 52202.
Thank you to Hospice and all of their nurses, especially Kim, who was so helpful through such a difficult time.
