Harry J. Strass
July 21, 1929 – August 3, 2019
Harry J. Strass, age 90, of Des Plaines was born July 21, 1929 in Chicago to Henry and Barbara (nee Schneider) Strass and passed away August 3, 2019. Harry was the beloved father of Michelle Strass. My parents chose me to be their daughter and, as I was growing up, taught me how to live life here in the United States. Dad was there for me during good times and bad. I never thought I would survive living on my own. His love and guidance has been my strength. We give thanks to cousins Connie, Ron, Marguerite, Ted and Sharon for their love and support and always being there for us. We give thanks to the nurses and staff of Asbury Court in Des Plaines as well as Journey Care Hospice for providing the needed extra care and love for my dad. My dad had a full and happy life, including serving in the United States Air Force as a staff sergeant. His family is so proud of all that he has done. Memorial visitation will be Tuesday, August 13, 2019 from 4:00 PM until the time of the Memorial Service at 5:30 PM at Lauterburg & Oehler Funeral Home, 2000- E. Northwest Highway, Arlington Heights. Interment will be private.
