Doris R. Harbert, United States Army Veteran

Doris Roy Harbert was born on November 28, 1956 in Waco, Texas and passed January 19, 2012 in Temple, Texas at the age of 55.

Doris graduated from Jefferson Moore High School in Waco and immediately entered the United States Army, and proudly served for two years. After his military service, he was employed with the VA
Hospital, Rainbow Bakery and Baylor University.

Doris married Odessa Briscoe on December 20, 1974, a union which was blessed with four children.

On January 30 an interment service was held at the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery at Killeen, Texas.

In attendance were the Patriot Guard Riders, who, serving as pall bearers, moved the flag draped casket from the hearse to the committal shelter. The Riders then formed a line of American flags at the entrance to the shelter.

Military honors were rendered by the Army Honor Guard. The bugler played taps. The flag that draped the casket was carefully folded into the traditional triangle and presented to Odessa on behalf of a grateful nation and the United States Army as a token of appreciation for Doris' honorable and faithful service.

Doris Harbert was laid to rest on the wind swept plain, as the American flag flew at half-staff, in his honor, at the top of the hill.

Left to cherish his memory are his wife, two sons, two daughters, nine grandchildren and numerous other dear family and friends.

With thanks to Branford Dawson Funeral Home for biographical information.
