About Eugene Raymond Harder

US Army Air Forces (Air Corps) during World War II. Enlisted on 7 Jul 1941.

"Harder, Eugene R., 91, peacefully passed away at Paramount Court in Turlock, CA on March 30, 2012.Gene was born to John and Mina Harder on June 11, 1920 in Oakland CA. As a young man he traveled by ferry to San Francisco to sell gardening equipment on Market St; he enjoyed gardening his entire life. After enlisting in the Army Air Corps in July 1941, he was stationed in Santa Ana. Gene served in logistics during the war and met the love of his life, Charlotte (nee McCausland). They wed in 1943 and were able to celebrate their 69th anniversary on March 11th. After the war Gene worked for over 30 years at Chevron Oil Field Research in LaHabra. He devoted years to his family genealogy and traced the Harders from Germany through the migration from the east by covered wagon during the 1850s. Love of his pet poodles, CJ and Jamie, kept him occupied during his retirement years. He and Charlotte moved to Turlock in July 2010 to be closer to family. Gene is survived by Charlotte and five nephews: Les, Mark (Linda), Brian, John and John (Jane) and a sister-in-law, Kay. Gene was quick to appreciate the generous love and gentle protection of the caregivers at Paramount Court. The family owes a debt of gratitude to Hospice of Emmanuel. Military services will be held at Lodi Memorial Park on Saturday, 7 April at 11:30 AM. Please leave memories and condolences at
