I hunted with Harmon many years with the Wrightsville Hunting Club. He was one of the good ones that I could count on. I enjoyed speaking with him when we ran into each other in town. His children are exceptional and any father would be proud of his legacy. My sympathies to his family.

I did not know him personally but I would still like to offer my deepest condolences to the family. I truly hope the scripture at John 11:11, where the Bible likens death to a peaceful sleep, can provide some peace at this time.
