David Harrington, local musician, died at home May 13, 2021. Dave was born August 19, 1951, at Hamilton Air Force Base in California to Van and Jean (Greenwalt) Harrington. The family returned to Deer Lodge in 1952 where Dave attended local schools. He graduated from Powell County High School where he developed a passion for theatre and for music that he kept all his life. He attended Montana Tech for a time, then abandoned school for a varied career which included snake wrangler for the Portland Zoo and gandydancer for the Milwaukee Railroad. He loved outdoor pursuits - skiing, hang gliding, hiking, and mountain climbing. He climbed Grand Teton and other peaks in the Rocky Mountains and in New Zealand. But his main focus was music. He could play any instrument; he built and sold dulcimers, lutes, and Irish harps, and was known for impromptu concerts at the library, bookstore, or any sunny patch of grass.
