JIMMY DALE HARMON, 71, of Dunlow, W.Va., passed away July 8, 2021 at Cabell Huntington Hospital. Born October 18, 1949 in Varney, W.Va., Jimmy served in the U.S. Marine Corp Delta 1-9, 3rd Marine Division during the Vietnam War. He was awarded the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry as well as the Bronze Star. He was preceded in death by his mother June Williamson Harmon, and three brothers, Tommy Harmon, Louie Harmon, and Keith Harmon.
He is survived by the love of his life and wife of 30 years, Jennifer Beckett Harmon; two sons, Jim Tyler “J.T.” (Darla) Harmon of Pikeville, Ky., and Nicholas Harmon of Dunlow; one grandson, Harvey Harmon; parents-in-law Johnny and Mary Beckett of Dunlow; sisters-in-law, Rylenea (Rick) Brewer of Dunlow, Joanna (Greg) Perry of Summersville, W.Va., and Jonna Beckett (Fur Bradley) of Dunlow; as well as two sisters, Pat Maskell (Ron) of Florida, and Lesia Sammons (Billy) of Varney, W.Va.; special nieces and nephews, Preslie Perry, Makaya Stumbo, and Shawn and Josh Sammons; Taylor Maynard, whom he thought of as a son; and a host of family and friends too numerous to mention.
Jim was the most kind and selfless man. He loved spending time with his family and made every
Holiday meal special with the finest ingredient being love. But, it was the after dinner conversations
and shenanigans he enjoyed the most.
Jim and Jennifer shared a once in a lifetime kind of love that only happens to a few lucky ones.
He was told by many, “you’re a good man Jim Harmon.” He was definitely the calm before our storm.
Funeral services will be conducted at noon on Tuesday, July 13, 2021 at Echo United Baptist Church with Elders Roger Maynard and Tommy Damron officiating. Visitation will begin at 6 p.m. Monday at the church. Arrangements entrusted to Johnson Tiller Funeral Home.
