Condolence & Memory Journal

Harley was a great co-worker. We had many interesting conversations not only about work issues but also about cars and motorcycles. Harley was a talented man from which I learned much.
My sincere condolences to his family.

I have known Harley for a long time. He was quiet and reserved but occasionally would give you that little smirk smile. He was so kind and easy to get along with. Him and I had the same last name and in the same year of school so everyone thought we were related. I haven;t seen him in quite some time but have many fond memories of him. So sorry for his family for I am sure it is a great loss. Take care Harley RIP. Kathy Wilson Schnathorst Speer.

I was very sad to see this ornery and sweet soul had passed
I shared a house with Harley and Grover Kirkman until Grover and I married. He was so generous he would actually let me drive his Cor ette! I lost touch with Harley over the years but I smile when I think of prayers are with you and children Melody

Although I did not know Harley, I remember how very kindly you spoke of him. My husband Dan went to Saydel with Harley and remembered him from school. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
