Name TypeDateDescription
Name VariationRobert Wesley Harrington was also known as Bob.
  • Robert Wesley Harrington was born on 27 June 1923 at South Dakota.
  • He was the son of Raymond W. Harrington and Twila L. Clark.
  • Robert Wesley Harrington died on 18 August 2005 at age 82 Robert Wesley Harrington, 82, Clear Lake, died Thursday, Aug. 18, 2005, at the Muse Norris Hospice Inpatient Unit, Mason City, Iowa. A funeral service was held Saturday, Aug. 20, at the Clear Lake United Methodist Church, with the Rev. Jan R. Burnett officiating. Full military rites were conducted, following the service at the church, by the Clear Lake V.F.W. Interment will be at a later date in the Clear Lake Cemetery. Robert was born June 27, 1923, on the family farm in Murdo, S.D., the son of Raymond W. and Twila L. (Clark) Harrington. They moved to a farm in Vermillion, S.D. and he attended and graduated from Vermillion Schools in 1941. At the age of 17, Bob became interested in boxing. He was self trained, built his own boxing ring and trained more than 200 young boys. Bob was one of the best boxers in South Dakota. After high school Bob continued to work on his father's farm until being drafted into the U.S. Navy in 1944. He worked as a radio operator on a ship all over the Pacific until the end of the war. He then returned back to the family farm. Bob met Ethel Millage at a social dance and the rest is history. They married Dec. 14, 1947 and bought a farm outside Vermillion. A while later they moved into town and Bob started carpentry work. They later moved to Yankton, S.D. where Bob was the first worker at the Gavins Point Dam. He became the Chief Steward of the Union. In 1956, he took a job with Henkle Construction in Mason City. Soon after he went into the insurance industry and moved to Clear Lake on the north shore. Robert became one of the top 10 insurance salesmen in the USA for Lincoln Liberty Life. He had the honor of being in the Appa Week Club for 15 1/2 years for selling at least one policy a week. Robert continued in the insurance business until 1995 when he retired. He was a member of the Clear Lake United Methodist Church, the Clear Lake V.F.W., the Masonic Lodge (Worshipful Master), the Eastern Star, and White Shrine. Some of his fondest memories are of watching his children grow up and then watching his five grandchildren grow. Family has always been everything to Robert and his desire to be close to them and help them achieve their goals has been clearly seen in all he has done. He has also enjoyed his trips to Acapulco, Mexico, and the Black Hills in South Dakota. He loved to go camping, fishing, and most of all hunting for rabbits and pheasant. Robert gives this advice: "Be a fighter! Go to the top of wherever you are at! Never give up! Love your family and stick to teamwork!" Ethel says that her husband has never been a quitter. He has also always put every effort into loving people and truly showing he cares. She says that he has always been a quiet man and has never had much to say, but you can see his faith shining through in everything. He knows that the Lord has been taking care of him, especially through the hard times. Growing up on the farm in South Dakota, Bob's father took great pride in celebrating Christmas to the fullest. The tree went up early and the entire house was decorated. Bob continued this tradition for his children and grandchildren. As expressed by his granddaughter, Sheri Riley, in 1997, "What I admire the most in my Grandpa Robert is what I have seen in the last two years through all his physical difficulties. He has shown me true perseverance when all the odds have been against him. Instead of giving up when doctors said there was not much of a chance, grandpa kept fighting! With God's strength he has overcome many obstacles. His life is a true miracle!" Eight years later, her words became only too true. Robert is survived by his wife of 57 years, Ethel Harrington, Clear Lake; two sons, David Harrington and his wife, Janelle, Clear Lake; and Steven Harrington and his wife, Phyllis, Sioux City, Iowa; one daughter, Pam Riley and her husband, Scott, Burnsville, Minn; five grandchildren, John Harrington and his wife, Kristie, Oklahoma City, Okla., Sheri Prescott and her husband, Tony, Sierra Vista, Az., Willem Riley, Burnsville, Adam and Amber Harrington, Sioux City; four great-grandchildren, Bethany, Brandon, and Bailey Harrington, and Savannah Prescott; and several nieces and nephews.
    Robert was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Elaine Phinney; brother, Gordon Harrington and an infant sister.
    Ward-Van Slyke Colonial Chapel, Clear Lake, was in charge of arrangements.
