Harold Ray Penn, 94, passed away peacefully on May 8, 2019. Born on April 23, 1925 in Lapine, AL. He was one of 8 children, with one remaining sibling, Barbara Tschannen. Married to his wife, Mildred, for 65 years until her death in 2011. He was and will always be a proud Marine, serving in WWII as a gunner on the USS Biloxi. His vessel received 11 battle stars, was involved in two sea battles, and gave support for various landings in the Pacific Campaign. For most of his life he was employed in the freight/transportation industry. He was a lifelong Baptist. He loved his family very much and was always tremendously supportive. He was an all out salt of the Earth and a genuinely great guy. You could always count on was his ability to tell a joke, never lacking for words, and always ready to pull a prank on the unsuspecting. He loved to fish and was as proud of his jon boat as if he owned a super yacht. He loved all sports, especially softball, playing in various church leagues around Tampa. He is survived by daughter Marilyn Moore, son Ray Penn (Madalene), daughter Donna Sonenberg (Kent); seven grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
