Obituary for William Raymond Harding

William Raymond  Harding
William Raymond Harding, 64, born July 14th, 1953 went to Glory to be with the Lord, Thursday morning, April 12, 2018. He was being taken care of at home at the time. There will be a memorial celebration of his life on Saturday April 21st at 1pm at PaulAnn Baptist Church in San Angelo. The family is asking that in lieu of flowers a donation be made to a veteran’s group such as Operation Homefront or Veterans for Veterans. Arrangements are by Shaffer Funeral Home/Sherwood Way.
He is survived by his wife of 36 years, Patricia Duffy Harding, As well as his mother Georgia Palmer of Dupo Ill, and their son Richard Harding and his wife. Also, their goddaughter, Tyrah Atchison, who has been living with them for several years.
Will was a USAF retired disabled veteran of 23 yrs of active duty. He and his family had opportunities to live in Europe and he also was able to visit several Asian countries. After the USAF he worked as a safety and logistic manager for the civil service on Goodfellow AFB. When his contract ended he went to work for Templeton Construction Co in San Angelo. His last employer was with Ace hardware part time right before the family reunion.
He was always ready with a witty or sarcastic comeback to comments around him and many a folk would look at this quiet man and be totally off guard that it had come from him.
Will always enjoyed the outside and traveling and dressing up and performing. He worked/performed in several productions at San Angelo civic theater. As well as a re-enactor as a union soldier at Fort Concho located downtown San Angelo. His mother also tells of how when he was a boy he had a confederate uniform that he would wear while playing at his grandmothers, so he obviously caught the acting/theater bug early in his life. He also loved music and was a member of the Barbershop chorus here in San Angelo, The Tonesmen. Will and his wife were active church choir members at Lifepoint Baptist and Paulann Baptist churches for the past 23 years. Jesus was his personal savior and an important part of his life.
When he was younger, he and his wife enjoyed motorcycle riding to see new places. Our last trip was to his Wilson family reunion in his truck over Memorial Day weekend last May.
Any questions can be directed to Shaffer Funeral Home in San Angelo, TX 325-244-2828
