William Edgar Harber died at the age of 78, born October 22, 1938 in Beaumont, TX to William V. Harber and Evelyn Phillips Harber, due to an airplane crash in his beloved RV-7 in Arizona on June 27, 2017. The Memorial Service will be held at Denton Bible Church on Wednesday, July 5 at 11 o’clock with a reception to follow at the church.
The deceased will be best remembered for his activities and contributions in the U.S. Army (February 1962 - February 1966), Corporate Pilot for Celanese Corporate (1964 - 1966), Pilot for Delta Airlines (1966 - 1997). Married to Janette Beauchamp Harber (1965 - 2007 when she went to be with the Lord Jesus).
Bill had a love and passion for airplanes. He flew airplanes since the age of 14 and said on many occasions, “all I’ve ever wanted to do my whole life is fly airplanes.” He served as a pilot for many companies including over 30 years with Delta Airlines where he retired as a captain. You could always find him at the Denton Municipal Airport working on his airplanes and talking with his friends and fellow pilots. He loved the Lord Jesus and was an active member at Denton Bible Church for over two decades, greeting people with a smile as an usher, faithfully studying the Bible in Sunday School, and constantly ministering to people in his day-to-day life, always eager to share the Gospel. He attended Bible Study Fellowship every year. He gave generously to many ministries and missionaries around the world. He was a family man who would do anything and everything for the ones he loved.
Bill is survived by his son James and his grandson Tristan, his grandson Ian and his wife Katie, his sister-in-law Renee Beauchamp Skeels and her daughters Sadie and Katherine Skeels.
