Harold Charles Off, 65, of Farmington, N.M., passed away June 1, 2011, at his home. Harold was born March 22, 1946, in Alamosa, Colo., the son of Charles and Jeannette Off.

Harold graduated from Farmington High School in 1964. He served in the National Guard for six years. Harold married his high school sweetheart, Phyllis Downs, in 1966. He then began to pursue his lifelong passion in the automotive field. He took over the salvage business from his father, Charlie, expanding into installations and later four-wheel drive and off-road specialties. Harold was innovative, inventing the Navajo Brake Booster.

Harold enjoyed life like no other. He enjoyed jeeping, motor homing, hunting, shooting, fishing, camping and spending time in Rico. He enjoyed life completely, putting everything he had into the moment. It was Harold’s philosophy in life, as in business, to be honest, “above board” and fair.

Harold took great pride in his family and his country. His children and grandchildren were the delight of his life.

Harold leaves behind his sweetheart, Phyllis Off; sons, Brett (Melissa) Off and Cody (Rachel) Off; daughter, Amy (Shane) Spellbring; eight grandchildren, Croix, Lacy, and Taylor Off, Ashton and Brandon Staley, and Hannah, Ethan and Joshua Spellbring; Harold’s mother, Jeannette Off; sister, Judi Off-Pitts and husband, Derrell; and many dear friends, colleagues and off roaders.

Services were held June 6, at Memory Gardens Cemetery. Military honors were provided by VFW Post 2182 of Farmington.
