Dave Harlin Obituary
Dave Harlin, age 70, of Port Orange, Fla., passed away on Saturday, May 12, 2012 after a lengthy illness.

Dave was born in Akron, Ohio on December 3, 1941 to Paul and Louise Harlin. He entered into the United States Air Force in 1960 and proudly served for 4 years. Upon returning home from England, Dave joined Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company as an administrative clerk. Dave worked up the ranks becoming North American Marketing Manager of OTR tires and retired after 37 years. He was a loving husband, father and grandfather who loved golf, fishing, painting, cooking, and NASCAR racing. He was an avid reader, enjoyed spending time with friends and just relaxing on his porch. Dave also considered himself to be a very fortunate man because he found love not once, but twice in his lifetime. First with his beloved Joyce, with whom he raised a family; and again when he reunited with his high school sweetheart Cathy, with whom he enjoyed his last ten years of life.

He was also preceded in death by his wife to 36 years, Joyce (Mills) Harlin; his parents; Paul and Louise Harlin of Cuyahoga Falls; his brother, Jeff Harlin of Cuyahoga Falls and his sister, Paula Harlin of Portland.
