Funeral Mission
September 22 & 23, 2019
Yankton, SD

   The Patriot Guard Riders have been invited by the family of Harry W. Luurs to show our appreciation and respect to Harry with a flag line in honor of his service to his and our great Nation.  Harry served his country in the United States Marine Corps, 7th Engineering Division.

   Harry began his career at the young age of six at the knee of his father, Dick Luurs. Harry would go to work with his dad who ran heavy road equipment for Charles Mix County, thus began his love of building roads and bridges.  He worked as a highway department foreman for 16 years with Charles Mix County before moving his family to Bison, S.D., where he became the highway superintendent of Perkins County for the next four years.  In 1971, Harry took the job of highway superintendent for Yankton County, where he retired in 1994 after 23 years of service.
