A celebration of his life will be held from 1–4 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 19, 2019, at 604 W. 23rd, Spokane, Wash. Please bring your memories to share with family and friends.

Darvin was born Jan. 11, 1940, in Republic, Wash., to Paul and Lydia (Krein) Harris. He served in the Army and Army National Guard from 1958 to 1965. On April 6, 1963, he married Gloria Elizabeth Cross in Spokane.

The most important thing to him was his family. He especially enjoyed spending time with his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Darvin had a wonderful sense of humor.
