      Born in Sidney Oct. 6, 1885, he was a son of William H. and Emma Guckes Harp. He was married Oct. 19, 1905, to Maude B. Shoffner. The couple celebrated their 68th wedding anniversary last October.

      Survivors are his wife, two daughters, Mrs. Emma E. Osborn, at home, and Mrs. John (Kathryn) Millhoff, of Sidney; four grandchildren, four great-grandchildren, and a brother, Raymond Harp of Sidney. Four brothers preceded him in death.

      Mr. Harp was active in the Democratic Party and served as president of the city council prior to taking over as mayor for one term. He served two terms as county recorder.

      He belonged to the Memorial United Methodist Church where he served on the board of trustees. He also was the last charter member of that church. Mr. Harp was a member of the Sidney Elks Lodge.

      Rev. Charles Adams will conduct services at 2 p.m., Wednesday at the church on North West avenue.
