Adam W. Harr

September 19, 1978 ~ April 17, 2021 (age 42)


Adam W. Harr, 42, of Pekin, IL, passed away on Saturday, April 17, 2021. He was born on September 19, 1978, in Peoria, IL, the son of Carl Harr and Karen (Bomarito) Erickson. He graduated from East Peoria Community High School in 1996 and later attended Illinois Central College. He enlisted in the Navy after graduation. He married Jessica (Pierce) Harr, and they had two daughters Amiyah and Gabriel "Brie" Harr.

For approximately a decade, he served in the US Navy, stationed in Virginia Beach, as an aviation technician, repairing the radars upon Naval aircraft. He fought during both the Afganistan War and the War on Iraq.

After enlistment, he resided in Illinois. He held several different jobs locally with such places as Car Quest, Plaza Tires, and Caterpillar. He remarried in 2019 to Amy (Schoenman) Harr, who
preceded him in death.

Adam was one of a kind. He had a style all his own that only he could pull off. Adam claimed to hate attention but wore the loudest colored patterns, often with the tallest mohawk! He was a romantic and a dreamer. He was not afraid to stand up for what he believed in, whether anyone was on his side or not.

Those who knew Adam loved him. He had a heart of gold. Adam hated to see anyone suffer and would go above and beyond to help those in need. He hated for family or friends to worry about him. He would say to his Mom, "What's the point of worrying? It doesn't do anything but make you old!" He always had an uncanny way of cheering people up with quirky little sayings that always made you laugh.

He always loved music. He would often help local musicians set up and break down their equipment for shows. He loved to attend concerts, loved gathering with close friends and family, and cook for everyone. We want to honor him and have you join us in a celebration of life on Sunday, May 16, 2021 at the East Peoria Silver Bullet from 1:00 pm until 4:00 pm.
