Henry Spotwood Pharris


Henry Spotwood Pharris went home to be with the Lord on Aug. 18, 2018. Henry was born to Andrew Belden and Effie J. Pharris on April 8, 1933, in Jackson County, Tennessee.
Henry worked for Continental Steel for 34 years and was a member of the Steelworkers Union. He then went on to work at the Kokomo Country Club in grounds maintenance. Henry married Peggy Depew on March 19, 1956.
Henry liked to work with his hands, always doing projects. He was the original McGyver. If Henry didn't know how to do something, it was something to be solved. He never met an appliance that he couldn't fix. Henry enjoyed flea markets and car shows. He loved to cook. He had a big heart and was full of life. He had a strong spirit. Henry was loved by his family and friends and always will be.
Henry is survived by his wife, Peggy Pharris; son, Jeff (Donna) Pharris; grandson, Trevor (Kiley) Pharris; cousin, Oneida (Bob) Scott, who was like a daughter; nieces and nephews, Donnie Depew, Dea Depew, Loretta Morgan, Joretta Black, and Doug Trent.
Henry's family would like to extend a special thank you for all the hugs and love that he received in his final days, and Guardian Angel Hospice caregivers for their compassion.
