Harry Eugene Werdebaugh

June 29, 1942 ~ May 1, 2018 (age 75)

Harry Eugene Werdebaugh, 75, of Swallow Falls, MD, passed away at his home peacefully on Tuesday, May 1, 2018.

Born June 29th, 1942, in Swallow Falls, he was the son of the late Luther and Mary (Bathalow) Werdebaugh. He was also preceded in death by ten brothers and sisters, James, William, Thelma, Laura, Louise, Alice, Mary, Patsy, Jack and Luther.

Harry was a retired welder who enjoyed life to the fullest. He was an avid fisherman, and went every year to Canada for his guys only trip with family and friends. He loved cooking, and working outside. He was also a fan of football, particularly the Ravens. He loved people and was very close with his family. I’ve yet to meet a person that disliked Harry. He would have a conversation with just about everybody, and he would get to know you even if he just met you.  Harry loved spending time with his wife, Judy, and his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. He believe family was most important and showed it in every way, every day.

In addition to his loving wife, Judy, he is survived by four daughters, Aurelia Marple; Carol Corbin (Steve), all of Oakland; Serena Futch (Doug), Loch Lynn Heights, MD; Rechell Mruk (Justin), Peoria, AZ; one stepson, Jimmy Walker (Kristen), Oakland; one stepdaughter, Erin Moyer (Rob), Swanton, MD; two brothers, David and Ronald Werdebaugh, Ohio; one sister, Linda White, Oakland; a very special friend of the family, Cookie Lewis; sixteen grandchildren, Wesley and girlfriend, Jess; Jeremiah Wilt (Lisa); Elaine Marple; John and Jack Corbin; Stephen, Nicole, Ricky, Sammy, Mickaylee Seeders; Samantha and Noel Lucas; Geoffery Collins; Brandon Upole; Macey Walker; Jessica Moyer; three great grandchildren, Zach and Jensen Wilt; Nora Mae Broadwater; many cousins, nieces and nephews who he loved very much.
