Tribute to Clarke R. Harwood -
February 22, 1927 - July 4, 2006
CWO4 Clarke Harwood had 31.5
years of faithful USCG service. After retirement, Clarke earned a
degree in Civil Engineering and served the City of New Orleans.
From my USCG start in 1958 meeting Mr.
Harwood in Ketchikan, Alaska, a two year tour of duty. It
was a tough life and little did I know each of us had
our trials and tribulations. I was an apprentice and Russ made
life a lot easier, allowing myself to enter the radio field
aboard ship. He was kind to his shipmates and was well thought
of. We lost track over the years and through the kindness of
Officer Harwood's daughter (Carolyn) we learned of this mans
outstanding service and raising his children. The U.S. Coast
Guard Band and Honor Guard from the Training Academy served at
Mr. Harwood's funeral at Arlington National Cemetery in October
of 2006. He was also honored by our President George W. Bush.
RIP Dear friend. W8SU ZUT
With appreciation from the President of the U.S.A. George W. Bush.
