Harry William Head, age 79 of Bowdon, passed away Sunday, March 5, 2023. Born in Atlanta, GA, on January 19, 1944, he was the son of the late General Marion Head and the late Sarah Elizabeth McDonald Head Biggs. In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his wife of 53 years, Linda Hawkins Head; his daughter, Terrie Head; and his sons, Billy Head and Jerry Head.
Harry loved his family, especially his grandchildren, but most of all his wife, Linda. He was one of a kind who would help anyone in need. Fixing things was his hobby that carried over from his days as a machinist. He enjoyed going to the beach and cooking, and he was really a great cook.
Survivors include his son, Shane and Kelly Abernathy Head of Bowdon; his grandchildren: Chris and Adrienne Howard, Anthony Burner, James Burner, Ashley Head, and Alayna Miller; and his great-grandchildren: Skye, Keily, Cole, Cain, Kyla, Mirica, Ava, Anna, Hailey, and Michael.
In accordance with his wishes, Harry will be cremated. The family is planning a gathering to celebrate his life at a later date.
Hutcheson's Memorial Chapel & Crematory of Buchanan is honored to serve the cremation needs of the Head family.
