  • I had the privilege of meeting Harley 18 months ago. He had a deep love for his Father God. I will always treasure our friendship. He will be greatly missed.

  • My Brother in Law. A Hard worker doing welding. A tinkerer at heart. Made me a plastic handle to carry several bags on a good invention. A quiet man when my sister was around but became more open to me after she died. With not having any children of his own he claimed Brian as a son and a grandson showing him many things and driving him to all things close to him. He was a proud man. Wanting all to know how much he liked everyone. To all those who were nice to Harley THANK YOU. And to Angie and Brian who took care of him and showed your love I am very great full and proud of all of you. My heart go’s out to the whole family.

  • I had the privilege of working with harley at general castings in Delaware,he showed me all the tricks in welding and a lot of humor also. Harley was a good hearted man who said what was right. Rip Harley

  • He was a man of strength! The quite ones usually are. To serve our country as a paratrooper- I can only imagine the strength and courage it took to do that. Our connection was that of Zoom calls, never face to face, but anyone that loves God, family, and country- we can be so thankful to know and have a connection. He believed and walked with Him, and there is a time coming that we will know and be known-even greater!
    My condolences to his family. No regrets, only love.
