Obituary for Richard Lee Harding

Richard Lee Harding, age 80 of Cookeville, Tennessee passed from this life Friday, December 7, 2018,

Richard was born Wednesday, March 23, 1938, in Owasso, Michigan. He was the son of the late Donald Harding and the late Edith (Palk) Harding.

Richard grew up in Cookeville and was very active in Scouting, being one of three from Troop 108 who earned Eagle Scout Gold Palm, God and Country and Explorer Silver Award in the mid-1950s. After proudly serving in the US Navy he came back to Cookeville attending Tennessee Tech and earning a degree in math. Then spending a brief stint in Maryland, he moved home to open a family business, Exotic Tropicals, with his Uncle and Aunt Alard and Lovey Harding.

He is survived by two sisters:

Ursa Jean Burris of Crossville, TN
Donna Thomsen of Cookeville, TN

A special thank you to Dennis and Pam George whose love and support blessed Richard and Ruth in so many ways.

In addition to his parents, Richard was preceded in death by his Wife Anna Ruth Harding.
