The son of Aurelia and Kelley Pharr, he was born in Pocatello, Idaho where his father was stationed with the Army Air Corps during World War II. He grew up in Decatur, graduating from Decatur High School in 1961 with boyhood friends who remain loyal friends today.
He treasured memories of summers and holidays spent with his large extended family in Vienna, Ga., at the home of their matriarch, Viola “Burr” Newby.
He graduated from Georgia Institute of Technology with a degree in industrial management and earned an MBA from Georgia State University.
He spent his entire career in hospital administration and was named a Fellow of the American College of Health Care Executives. From his first position at Northeast Georgia Medical Center to the last 17 years at Satilla Regional Medical Center (later called Mayo Clinic Health System in Waycross), he truly loved his work, respecting and respected by all members of the hospital staff and medical community.
Active in community affairs, he was on the board of the Childers Family YMCA and served as its president for two years. A great supporter of the nursing programs at Okefenokee Technical College, he served both as member and president of its board of directors.
He was also a member of Grace Episcopal Church, serving on its vestry and pitching in on its many Helping Hands of Christ work days.
He loved discerning dining, walking his dogs, Queenie and Jack, snow skiing with his daughter, Tori, reading good books, hiking the trails of North Georgia, taking road trips to New England with Carol and doing nothing at the beach.
Immediately upon his retirement, he began volunteering as an administrator at Hospice Satilla and held its staff and nurses in utmost respect. His other great enthusiasm during retirement was riding with Old Folks on Bikes, whose exclusive ranks include Brenda and Albert Sutton, John Butler, Evan Deloach and Jimmy Sutton, who will serve as honorary pallbearers.
Interment in the Decatur Cemetery, Decatur, will be at a later date.
