Harry Alvin Sargent passed away peacefully and with his family by his side on April 13, 2014, at the age of 77. Harry was born in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. He was a descendant of Alvin and Edna Sargent.
Harry moved to Upland, CA, in May 1962, to follow his early career in the auto repair business. He soon found that this was one of his strongest passions in life. In 1964, shortly after arriving in California, he and his wife Barbara founded Sargent’s Auto Body. They ran this business until 1978 when Harry took a trip to Roseburg, OR, for a vacation with a friend from California. Harry enjoyed Roseburg so much he purchased a home.
Harry opened Sargent’s Body Shop in Roseburg. Harry brought one of his son’s into the business, Harry Jr., and he continues to follow in the family business.
There will be no funeral. A ‘potluck’ celebration of life will be held at 3:00 pm on June 14, 2014, at 948 Page Road, Winchester, OR.
