I worked with Harlan at the City of Dayton, I can remember when he was probably about 70 he was helping a widowed lady about 80 with shoveling snow, "he said I like to help the elderly people". Classic Harlan a great guy, gone but not forgotten.
On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Ohio Military Hall of Fame, I want to pass along condolences to the family. Mr. Sims was an American Hero in every sense of the word. On a personal note, I served with Seal Team One in the late 60's. "Old Frogs" like Harlan were a very special part of our heritage. God rest his soul and bless his family.

It was my blessing to have known Harlan and to be good friends with his daughter Kaye. Kaye is truly a testament to the influence her Dad had on her life. She is so kind, loving and giving and thinks of others before herself - so much a legacy and tribute to her Dad. Please accept our since sympathy and know that our prayers will be with the entire family in the days to come. All our love, Bob and Barb Kozlowski
I worked with Harlan at the City of Dayton. He also worked with my Dad at NCR. He was a wonderful man. I am blessed to have had him as a friend. Take care and God bless all of you.
I worked with Harlan at the City of Dayton for many years. He was a good guy and one of our more colorful co-workers.
