Harold L. Eakes, 91

Harold Eakes, just shy of 92 years old, shuffled off on Nov. 27, 2019, to wherever souls go to rest a bit before moving on. He was surrounded on that day by the love of family and friends.

Harold was born in Iowa City. He lived many years in Reno, where his daughters, Dana and Ruthie, were born and raised. He lived the last 25 years in Coeur d’Alene.

I found this poem in dad’s desk. It suits him.

God’s Garden

God looked around

his garden,

And He found an

empty place.

He then looked down

upon this earth,

And saw your tired face.

He put His arms around

you, and lifted

you to rest;

God’s garden must

be beautiful,

He only takes the best.

He knew that you

were in pain.

He knew that you would

never get well on

earth again,

so He closed your

weary eyelids,

and whispered

“Peace be thine.”

It broke our hearts to

lose you, but you did

not go alone;

For part of us

went with you

The day God called

you home.


Yates Funeral Home has been entrusted with final arrangements.
