Celebration of Life Service for the IDMR International Vice President and Dean

The IDMR International Vice President and Dean, Robert Harris, DD, MD, parted the veil of the flesh on Thursday morning, September 13, 2018.  A Celebration of Life Service will be held on Sunday, October 14, 2018 at the Dolby Theatre, 6801 Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA  90028.  The Dolby Theatre is located at the Hollywood and Highland Center.  The confirmed time for the service is 3pm.  All IDMR members are welcome to attend.  All attendees MUST be dressed in dressy class attire (as defined by our Founder) or BETTER. Because the Dolby Theatre is located at the very busy intersection of Hollywood and Highland, this will allow ushers to distinguish our attendees from curious passersby or vagrants that might drift in among us.  If you show up in casual attire, you will likely be denied entrance.  Thanks in advance for your cooperation!      

Cards and condolences from IDMR members may be sent to Dr. Marion Harris, 3405 West 21st Street, Los Angeles, CA  90018.  For condolences from branch schools, branch school officers should review the announcement on the International News page of the IWBA. 

For IDMR members who plan to attend the memorial service and would like to attend class in Los Angeles on Thursday, October 11 or Tuesday, October 16, please contact your local branch officers for instructions contained in the announcement on the International Web-based Application (IWBA) and e-mail your request to Los Angeles Hospitality.  Requests will be honored on a first-come, first-served basis until all seats are filled.
