Harold Eugene Motter peacefully passed away on April 30, 2021 due to complications from surgery.
Harold had a vast career in music, playing with the Denver Symphony and teaching in numerous secondary and college institutions. He loved playing and listening to classical music, which constantly played throughout his home.
He was an excellent cook and loved experimenting with different cuisines from all over the world, collecting recipes at every opportunity.
Harold was a fantastic father of six children with whom he went on many adventures. He traveled throughout the United States with his first four children in his beloved VW bus and carried on that tradition with his later two. He lived in Scotland where he joined numerous orchestras and traveled throughout Europe with his wife, family members, and friends he made along the way.
Harold is survived by his wife, Mary Motter of Mankato, MN; six children, Elizabeth Motter of Cincinnati, OH, Anna Motter and Christina Mielke and wife, Kim of Minneapolis, Ned Motter of Eugene, OR, Soleil Golden and husband, Brian and Caitlin Motter of Seattle, WA; four grandchildren, Jacob Mielke and wife, Becca, Emily Mielke, Katie Lancour and husband, Hunter, and Spencer Motter and wife, Kristine; great-granddaughter, Claire Mielke; and his dog, Fledermaus.
A family celebration of life will be held later this summer.
