David was born in Viola, Arkansas on May 22, 1931 to Earl James Harber and Bertha Bell (Stephens) Harber. Growing up, David’s parents taught him how to be a hard worker at an early age including farming, carpentry, and mechanical work. David met the love of his life, Norma, at a very young age. Finally on May 16, 1952 they were joined in marriage. This was the same year that David joined the United States Army and honorably served his country during the Korean war. Following David’s time in the military he went to work at Bendix in the receiving department and retired after 37 years. In life, David was a man of Christian faith and very much enjoyed the fellowship that came along with that. David would also enjoy a banana split from Dairy Queen with Norma and would occasionally enjoy watching basketball and baseball.
David was preceded in death by his wife, Norma Rosetta Harber; parents, Earl and Bertha Harber; daughter, Lela Paulette Harber; two sisters, Rosemary Cotter and Jacquita Newberry; and brother, Frank Harber.
