Harner’s to be closed today for co-owner’s funeral

NORTH AURORA – Harner’s Bakery and Restaurant will close its locations in North Aurora and Aurora today so family, friends and co-workers can attend funeral services for Harner’s co-owner Chris Harner.

Harner’s will reopen its doors at 5:30 a.m. Friday. The family could not be reached for comment Wednesday.

Harner, 44, of Aurora, was killed Sunday in an ATV crash on Scott Road in Big Rock Township. According to the Kane County Sheriff’s Department, Harner was operating his ATV along the side of Scott Road and struck a culvert, causing the ATV to roll or flip over.

Kane County Sheriff’s deputies and Big Rock emergency personnel were dispatched to the scene at 5:05 p.m. Sunday. Harner was taken to Presence Mercy Medical Center in Aurora, where he was pronounced dead.

Harner was not wearing a helmet, authorities said. A funeral procession for Harner will be at 9:30 a.m. today, from The Daleiden Mortuary, 220 N. Lake St., Aurora, to St. Rita of Cascia Catholic Church, 750 W. Old Indian Trail, Aurora, at 10 a.m.

A concelebrated Mass will be offered by Monsignor Robert Willhite and the Rev. Oscar Cortes.
