Douglas Alan Harbac, 63, passed away June 16, 2019 in Bakersfield, CA at Bakersfield Community Hospice after an extended illness. Douglas, the son of Edsel O. and Agatha L. Harbac was born March 1, 1956 (one day past Leap Day Year) at Holy Rosary Hospital, Miles City, MT. He attended Sacred Heart School through his senior year graduating Salutatorian in the Class of 1974.
Following his graduation, he was employed for various intervals at Miles and Ulmer, J.C. Penny’s, Safeway, and Holiday Service Station. He furthered his education at Miles Community College, Eastern Montana College, Carroll College, and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Finance from Montana State University in 1985. With diploma in hand, he moved to Bakersfield, CA anticipating using that degree employed with the California Lottery System, but found all of the advertised positions filled.
In his late teens, he had been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, which hindered his ability to follow through with any of his endeavors.
