Thomas Allen Harmon died on Sept. 10.obit-harmon.jpg

He was born on Sept. 28, 1954, in Belle Glade, Fla., to John and Wanda Harmon.

In 1966, Harmon moved with his parents, sisters and brothers to Arlington, Wash. He attended school there.
Following in his brother John’s footsteps, Harmon became a truck driver in 1975. Over the next 35 years he enjoyed driving numerous types of rigs including flat beds, reefers, dry vans and tankers. He logged over 1.5 million miles, was relatively accident free and was a loyal and dependable employee.

Harmon tried self-employment for a time, owning his own trucks but in later years worked for others. His most recent employer was Harney Rock and Paving.

Harmon loved having horses and cattle, even if it was just on a small scale. He was an avid hunter, loved to fish and enjoyed country living. He was quick to help a friend in need, enjoyed helping others at calving time, and never said “no” to anyone who needed his assistance.

Harmon is survived by his wife, Andi Harmon of Burns; mother, Wanda Harmon of Salem; sister, Pam Blish and husband Carl of Blanchard, Idaho; brother, Steve Harmon and wife Chris of Washington; and numerous nieces, nephews and friends.

He was preceded in death by his father, John Harmon, and brother, Johnny Harmon.

Services for Harmon will be held on Monday, Sept. 20, at 2 p.m. at LaFollette’s Chapel.
