Robert E Harrington

Word was received here last week of the sudden death of Colonel Robert E. Harrington of Arlington, WA. Harrington, a Postville native, was the son of Cy and Nina Harrington.

Colonel Harrington was an outstanding Postville High School athlete, attended Cornell College and graduated from West Point. A veteran of World War II, Harrington was shot down over Communist China but was returned safely to his base by friendly natives.

In June of this year Harrinton returned to Postville for his 50 year class reunion, an experience he enjoyed immensely. Harrington is survived by his wife, Ginny, four sons, Robert, Charles, Richard and Douglass. Three sons graduated from the Air Force Academy, Fort Collins, Colorado. A sister, Catherine Hurley of Springfield, Ill also survives.

The Harrington home address is 2645 South Fort Scott Drive, Arlington, VA 22202.
