Harley was employed by the US Postal Service for 34 years. Gardening was his favorite pastime and he took great pride in his beautiful garden where you could always find him. He was a Master Gardner and served many in the community with his gardening skills. Harley served in many church callings throughout his life and enjoyed Genealogy and sharing his family history stories with others. Whenever you were with Harley, no matter how far from home, he would always find someone in the crowd that he knew. Everyone adored and loved him dearly and we will miss him greatly along with his big bear hugs that everyone loved. Harley found great joy for over 50 years bringing smiles to children as their Santa Claus. He will be greatly missed by so many.
