Harry Edward Willoughby

     Harry Edward Willoughby of Cottonwood, passed away Monday, November 9, 2015. He was 80 years young. 

     He is survived by his wife of 60 years, Alice Yvonne Willoughby, his two children David Willoughby of San Tan Valley, AZ and DeAnn Nelson of Roosevelt, UT. He was the proud grandfather, better known as Pop, to eleven rowdy grandchildren: Alicia, Amber, Jared, John, Lindsi, Tara, Heather, Jennifer, Erin, Shane and Shawn. He was also a great-grandfather to 25 children, and finally, a great-great grandfather once over. 

     Harry was born December 7, 1934 in Denver, Colorado to William and Irene Willoughby. He is preceded in death by his parents and his two brothers, Bill and Bob. Harry was a proud veteran of the United States Air Force and the Vietnam War. He faithfully served 26 years and received many awards including a bronze star, two oak leaf clusters and an Air Force commendation medal before retiring. His work took him and his family all over the world and on many adventures before he and Yvonne settled in Cottonwood in 1984. 

     Harry leaves behind a legacy of honor, duty, love of family and country and of courage. He will be sincerely missed. We will bid him a fond farewell at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints at 1377 Hombre Drive at 3:00 PM on Friday, November 13, 2015.

     Until we meet again.

Hey Pop, I know you aren't here anymore on earth with us, but I just wanted to tell you how much I love and miss you. I had a dream about you last night that you were in the room when I walked in. I was so happy to see you, I wrapped my arms around your neck and gave you a big hug with tears streaming down my face. I woke myself up and realized you weren't really there, but it felt so real. I still have a hard time wrapping my mind around the fact that you're really gone, you were my superman, my hero, the strongest man I knew. I didn't realize how hard it would be for me to accept that you really are gone. I love and miss you so much, I wish I could hold your soft hands one last time and tell you how much you mean to me. Til we meet again Pop. Love you so much!
