Harry Francis Ray Nord

August 24, 1933 — March 17, 2023

Our revered husband, father, grandfather, uncle and best friend, Harry Francis Ray Nord, of Pleasant View, Utah passed to his heavenly home on March 17, 2023 at the George E Whalen Veterans Home.  He had completed his earthly mission on this earth, which was to establish a beautiful family, to love, to teach, and to serve others. We are sure he was welcomed with “Well done, my good and faithful servant.  Welcome home”.

 

He was born in Seattle, Washington on August 24, 1933 to Fred John Nord and Ermal Pauline Porter.  He has one sister, Ermal Rose Nord Stockel and a brother, Ward Evan Davis, both proceeding him in death.

 

Harry married Marilyn Lee Buckles June 30, 1962 in Reno, Nevada and then sealed for time and all eternity in the Provo Utah Temple. 

 

Harry’s younger years occurred during the depression which forced his mother, father and sister to follow the fruit crops in California to support them. They did not have a home until World War II started at which time his parents were both able to find employment in the shipyards in Richmond, California. They were then able to have a real home in the housing provided. 

 

War time meant working around the clock for Harry’s parents which left Harry and his younger sister on their own much of the time. In spite of these hard years, Harry and his sister became beautiful, caring and responsible individuals.

 

Harry served in Korea in the United States Army.  After discharge, he returned to his position as a locomotive engineer for the Southern Pacific Railroad. During his railroad service and after retiring, he ran and operated many auto- related business which utilized his mechanical skills. but more importantly, his business fairness and helping people. His customers recognized his fairness and going completely above and beyond when needed.

 

Surviving is his wife, Marilyn Buckles Nord; and their five children, Gregory Ray Nord, Eric Jon Nord, Richard Lee Nord, Jeffrey Herbert Nord and Sara Catherine Nord Mleso. He has 17 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren. One grandson, Damien Ray Mleso, preceded him in death. He also has nieces and nephew who have loved their Uncle Harry for many years.

 

He will be missed but we have so many, many beautiful memories to sustain us. We now have peace. He has been released from the dementia that he endured so gracefully for the last ten years.

 

A special thanks and gratitude to the exceptional caring staff at George E Whalen Veterans Home.  Harry and his family were treated, not only with the utmost dignity, but with caring and compassion, not only for him, but each individual family member.
