    Harmon was our neighbor on Wayne Street and was the kindest, most pleasant person you could ask for. We used to have a problem with bats in our house – especially during the month of August, and Harmon would help Jessica and me in getting rid of them…he also would mow my lawn periodically with his riding mower….we couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful man. He will be missed. I also worked at WSC.
